Ladies and Gentlemen, meet the new World Number 1 in the Men’s Tennis- introducing Andy Murray!
Andrew ‘Andy’ Murray has turned pro in the year 2005. After 11 long years, his quest to become the best tennis player in the world is finally over! In the era of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, Great Britain’s Andy has toppled all of them and he is now currently dominates the world.
Having 3 Grand Slams titles under his belt, Andy is having an impressive 2016 so far. He started off being the Finalist in the Australian Open and the French Open, he won his 3rd Grand Slam which is his 2nd Wimbledon, this year. On top of that, he has successfully won the Gold Medal in the Rio Olympic.
As previously mentioned, the era when Andy made his debut belonged to legends like Roger Federer, Marat Safin, Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick. As time progressed, some legends faded away and new faces emerged like Rafael Nadal. With the display of such sheer powers dominating the courts, a talented Scottish boy, representing the Great Britain, lay behind the limelight.
Andy rose quickly. He may not have the masterful strokes and the elegance of Roger or the pure power of the Matador, also known as Rafa but what he has is the strong will, patience and the resilience to move forward. Sadly for the Scot, he saw his fellow mates jumping forward, successfully climbing up the stairs. Then came Novak, the new power to the throne. Andy saw them all, yet he lay there in the top 5, unable to move towards the peak. Changing his coaches way too many times, finally Murray settled with the great legend Ivan Lendl and Jamie Delgado as his new coaches.
Here it is now- the Rise of Andy Murray. After playing for 11 years in this circuit, the Great Britain has finally and successfully produced the best so far. To mark the end of the year, Andy clinched the World Number 1 title from Novak. And as a present, he has gifted himself his first Paris Masters title.
Well done, Andy! You have a long way to go, mate! Do we get to see a shuffle in the Number 1 title or will Andy successfully reign 2017 is now what we look forward to!
