On this day, back in 1987, tennis star Andy Murray was born in Glasgow, United Kingdom. He has established himself as one of the best players in men's tennis this decade and has frequently challenged the 'Big 3' of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic in tennis history. Notably, Andy Murray has brought a bunch of joy to his home nation, keeping the English flag high at all the big tournaments, especially at Wimbledon.

Murray has always been magnificent on the tennis court and has been known for his quick style with amazing anticipation, which enables him to retrieve even the hardest hit shots. He has been known as one of the best returners in the world, along with Djokovic. In addition, the star player has defused a big serve game by getting the most powerful serves back in the play.

The great player has a list of impressive records, as he won two gold medals at the Olympics, which he earned in 2012 and 2016. He is only the first male player to win a Grand Slam, especially the Masters 1000, and a gold medal in 2016.

Andy Murray's contribution as a player and competitor will always be remembered for a long time

Meanwhile, Murray's biggest curse is that he was born and brought up in the late 1980s, which makes him play alongside Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic, who used to prove to be disadvantageous for him. However, despite that, he has won 3 slams, 14 Masters, and a 1-year-end championship and jumped to the number one ranking, making him legitimate for inclusion in the best-of-all-time list.

Murray has played several epic matches in his career, showcasing his grit and determination. Notably, his 2012 Australian Open semis against Djokovic, the 2016 Gold Medal against Martin del Petro, and the 2016 World Tour Finals semis against Raonic are considered some of the best games in the history of the sport. Meanwhile, the legendary player's contribution as a player and competitor will always be remembered for a long time, no matter how many Grand Slams he ends up with.
