Andy Murray Player Profile

Andy Murray heads to Wimbledon as one of the leading contenders for the title.

The British number one is arguably playing the best tennis of his career and impressed again at the French Open, where his run to the semi-final was ended by regular rival Novak Djokovic - the only man to beat him since February. 

His bid for an Australian Open title was also thwarted by the world No 1 in the final, but he has beaten the Serb in their last two meetings on grass and will relish another showdown at the All England Club.

He warmed up for the tournament in winning fashion, collecting a record-equalling fourth title at Queen's after victory over Kevin Anderson in the Aegon Championships final.

A surprise defeat by Grigor Dimitrov saw Murray exit at the quarter-final stages in 2014, but his mental toughness has rarely wavered in recent months, with the coaching duo of Amelie Mauresmo and Jonas Bjorkman adding the final touches to his game. 

His more assured demeanour on court was demonstrated as he picked up his first two career titles on clay in May, and his maiden win in Munich followed six days later with a Masters 1000 crown in Madrid.

But he will relish his return to the grass, in front of his passionate home support, and a Grand Slam title is the only thing missing from an exciting year.   

A natural counter-puncher who prefers baseline exchanges, Murray also possesses great anticipation and a fantastic change of pace.
