No British man has won Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936, and Andy Murray has been hailed as the player with the talent to end that drought ever since he established himself in the Top 5 in 2008. Murray was a finalist at the 2008 U.S. Open, handing Rafael Nadal his first loss as the world No. 1 in the semifinals before falling to Roger Federer in the final. In 2009 Murray had his best career results to date at Wimbledon (losing in the semifinals to Andy Roddick) and the French Open (losing to Fernando Gonzalez in the quarters). Murray has twice (2007, 2009) made the fourth round at the Australian Open. He broke into the Top 100 in 2005 and won his first career title in 2006, a year he finished ranked No. 17. In 2007, despite missing significant playing time with back and wrist injuries, he climbed into the Top 15 and added two more titles. He won five titles in 2008 and six in 2009 to bring his career total, to date, to 14. He has won four career ATP Masters Series titles, winning in Madrid and Cincinnati in 2008 and in Miami and Montreal in 2009. In 2008, Murray became the first British player in the history of the ATP rankings to finish the season ranked in the Top 4. (The previous best year-end ranking for a British man had been No. 6, achieved by both Greg Rusedski and Tim Henman.) Murray reached a career-high ranking of No. 2 on August 17, 2009, and finished that year ranked No. 4 again. A native of Dunblane, Scotland, Murray attended Dunblane Primary School and was in attendance on the day of the notorious Dunblane massacre, when a gunman shot and killed16 children and one adult before killing himself. Murray was eight years old at the time. As a teenager, Murray trained in Barcelona at the Sanchez-Casal tennis academy. He won the U.S. Open junior title at age 17. His mother, Judy, is a former Scottish national tennis team coach. His older brother, Jamie, is also a pro tennis player. The left-handed Jamie, a doubles specialist, won the 2007 Wimbledon mixed doubles title with Jelena Jankovic. (as of November 27, 2009)
