Book Description

5 Nov 2009

'With Andy, the sky's the limit...' John McEnroe

At Wimbledon 2005, Andy Murray announced himself on the tennis world stage by thrashing star pros George Bastl and Radek Stepanek: a legend was born and Britain had a new sporting hero.

From there, Andy's rise to the top has been unstoppable: from winning his first ATP title at San Jose in 2006 and deposing Tim Henman to become British Number 1, to beating a host of former and current World no. 1s - including Andy Roddick, Lleyton Hewitt, Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal - Murray has gone from strength to strength. With his triumphant win at Queen's in June 2009, a storming performance at Wimbledon 2009 - which saw Andy reach the semi-finals for the first time - and his crowning as World Number 2, we have seen Murray reach even greater heights.

But Murray is much more than a truly gifted tennis player: he has changed the face of the British game. His grit, passion and success on court, combined with his ranking as one of the world's best players, has reignited Britain's love of tennis and inspired a whole new generation of kids to become tennis fans.

Here, in his updated story, Andy regales us with the highs and the lows, the triumphs and the near misses to show us just how far the boy from Dunblane has come.

Book Description

The new and updated paperback version of Andy Murray's autobiography

About the Author

Andy Murray was born on 15 May 1987 in Dunblane, Scotland. In September 2004 he won the boys' singles title at the US Open in New York, and that December he was crowned BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year. The following year he became the youngest-ever player to represent Britain in the Davis Cup, reached the third round in his debut at Wimbledon, and broke into the top 100 at the Thailand Open. In 2006 he won his first ATP title at San Jose, and ended 2007 ranked number 11 in the world, having won the St Petersburg Open. 2009 saw Andy off to a career-best 45-7 start, capturing four ATP World Tour titles, including becoming the first British player since Bunny Austin in 1938 to earn the title at Queen's Club.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book for a tennis fan 3 July 2012

I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the real Andy Murray, as opposed to the one we see getting pumped up, playing tennis. A great insight into the character of Britain's most successful tennis star since Fred Perry. If more of the cynics read this, perhaps they would understand him with the respect and admiration he deserves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revisit your view of Andy 11 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The press image of Andy is so wrong. This book gives you more of an insight into how he felt as he broke into the top ranks of tennis, his sense of humour, his determination and his belief in his own ability. Never try and put this man down, it'll never happen.

Loved this book. Great insight into Andy's years on the tennis circuit. I especially loved the input from other professionals on how he has progressed from a young player to the fantastic player he is now. I look forward to reading his latest book now that he has finally achieved his ambition of winning two grand slams.

Describes from Andy's point of view how difficult it is to become a tennis star in Britain. How alone you are and the extra lengths you have to go to to become successful.

I choose this rating as I am a big fan of Andy. I have followed him for a few years now albeit from the armchair, but I do record or watch all his matches. The story was interesting even although I have heard a lot of the information before.

It was very interesting to read about Andy's early career in his own words and to find out the truth about what has sometimes been reported in the newspapers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed it 10 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had not read Andy's story before but was prompted to do so after his Wimbledon win. Great to read the background about how hard he worked from a young age - he is a great player and had great determination - pity the UK media do not give him the credit he deserves. Very interesting read. I recommend it to all tennis fans.
