Andrew Murray is Britain's brightest up-and-coming tennis star. The game runs through his veins; his mother Judy is a former player and the 2003 Scottish National Tennis Coach. She has trained Andrew since he was three. Andrew picked up an array of championship titles as a youth, including victory in the prestigious junior 2004 US Open. At only 18 years old he became Britain's youngest Davis Cup Player, and he immediately grabbed the headlines at Wimbledon 2005, where he beat top seeds Radek Stepanek and George Bastl. His recent victory against previous British favourite Tim Henman has won him a place in the hearts of the British public who have renamed the famous 'Henman Hill' 'Murray Mound'. With Tim Henman and Greg Rusedski approaching the twilight of their careers, British tennis is crying out for a new champion. Andy has already made good his claim that he'd be a top 100 player by the end of 2005, and is set to continue his amazing rise to the top of the tennis world.
