Andy Murray is the British tennis player, who is regarded as the major hope for Britain to see a Grand Slam winner. He is regarded as the finest British player to come about after a long time and he would often find that the nation almost prays for his success. Hailing from Scotland, he is an extremely good player having a great future in tennis if he carries on in the same breath. He has also been the first British player to come close to winning the Grand Slam after a long time, but has failed on the three occasions that he has made the final.
It has happened in 2008, 2010 and in 2011, with Murray making the finals of the U.S. Open once and the Australian open twice. Murray himself claims that hard courts are always the best for him and suit him the most considering the fast surface. However, he has also been improving on clay of late, which has definitely led him to be one of the favourites for the Roland Garros 2011. So far, in his tennis career, No. 2 ranking was the best that Andy Murray has ever held. He has been able to sustain the top 10 position since 2007, which in itself is a great achievement considering the players ahead of him. It is a list that includes Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.
Murray has stated many times that he still believes that he can win the Grand Slam that has eluded a British national since 1936 when Fred Perry became the champion of three Grand Slams. Even though his achievements still rank extremely high, many consider Andy Murray to be the individual who is capable of once again equalling the record. Andy Murray is also the current number one amongst British players.
