What is Andy Murray’s net worth? $165 million
How did Andy Murray earn his money and wealth?
Andy Murray, short for Andrew Barron Murray, is a British Tennis Player by profession. He was born in Scotland to William Murray and Judy Murray. He was just a three-year-old boy when he started playing Tennis. At the early age of eight, he became skilful enough to compete in the Central District Tennis League against adults.
His sheer competitive behaviour, according to him, could be because of the fact that his parents got separated in 1997 when he was just 10 years old. Even though he and his elder brother Jamie lived with their father, they continued their Tennis practice under their mother’s mentorship. When he was 15, he decided to opt Tennis as his career and moved to Spain, rejecting the training offered to him in the Rangers Football Club. He got a chance to be trained by Emilio Sanchez. His determination was unharmed even when he was diagnosed with bipartite patella in 2003, which later turned out to have been there since his birth. Andy got married to Kim Sears in April 2015. They have two daughters. The family lives in Oxshott, Surrey.
Steady progress can be witnessed in Murray’s tennis career in the junior level where he won the Orange Bowl event twice. In 2004 September, he got the victory in the Junior US Open and also got the title ‘BBC Young Sports Personality Of the Year’. In the same year, he was in the second position all over the world in junior level. By the end of 2005, Murray was ranked 64th position and he got the name ‘2005 BBC Scotland Sports Personality Of the Year’. In 2006, Andy was termed as British No.1 whereas in 2007 he was ranked 10th position. The win that made a huge difference in Murray’s profession was when he defeated Rafael Nadal to reach finals in the Grand Slam held in New York. However, he faced a crisp defeat against Roger Federer in the final match. The outstanding achievements of Andy in 2009 would be winning the Masters Title twice and being ranked in the second position. 2012 was surely a wonder for Andy Murray as he became the first man for winning both US Open ( which was considered as the longest final in the tournament history) and Olympic Gold Medal.
The major victory for Andy in 2013 would be the Wimbledon Title as well as Gold Medal in Olympics in the singles category. But as his knee condition was bugging him for a long time, he decided to undergo knee surgery to end the problems once and for all. Later he participated in many of the tournaments including Davis Cup, French Open, Madrid Open and Indian Wells where he faced many victories as well as defeats against the opponents. The remarkable victory in 2015 for Murray was the Davis Cup Championship. He also grabbed the second position for the very first time. A triumphant smile was seen on his face when he was titled – Wimbledon Champion and Olympic Gold Medallist for the second time which led him to enjoy the world’s number one position in 2016. His income in 2016 resulted from Australian Open where he earned RU £1,012,980, Indian Wells Masters 3rd Round earning him £29,236, Miami Open – 3rd Round, £29,236, Monte Carlo Masters – Semifinal, £152,095, Madrid Open – RU £384,613, Italian Open – Winner, £616,332, French Open, RU £859,222, Shanghai Masters – Winner, £842,202, Vienna Open – Winner, £367,789, Paris Masters – Winner, £640,896, ATP World Tour Finals – Winner £1,930,561, and so on.
