Andrew Barron Murray aka Andy Murray is a British professional tennis player from Scotland.
He is regarded as the greatest British tennis professional in the Open Era. The holder of 2 Wimbledon titles and 1 US Open title, Murray is the only player to become World Number 1 in the BIG 3 Era.
Andy Murray has been the most prolific British tennis player in the Open Era, winning 3 Grand Slams and 14 Masters 1000 trophies. Murrray’s backhand has been the biggest asset in his powerful baseline game.
The Brit has so much confidence in his backhand that he even takes 1st serves via his backhand.
Murray’s backhand is the mainstay of his game and it even outscores his forehand, His backhand lobs are often well timed and placed resulting in clear winners. Above all the consistency of the double handed backhand is the cardinal component of Murray’s extreme defensive skills.
Murray’s backhand is so rich in variety that he can hit running down winners, passes down the line as well as deceptive slices.
Andy has so far won more than 61 Million US $ in his career. This looks set to increase as the Brit is all set to make a comeback in the Grass season this year.
