Andrew Barron "Andy" Murray, OBE (born 15 May 1987) is a Scottish professional tennis player currently ranked world No. 1 in men's singles. Murray represents Great Britain in his sporting activities and is a three-time Grand Slam tournament winner, two-time Olympic champion and Davis Cup champion. He was first ranked as British No. 1 on 27 February 2006. He achieved a top-10 ranking by the ATP for the first time on 16 April 2007. Following his run to the final of the 2016 Paris Masters, Murray became world No. 1 on 7 November 2016, as the first new player to top the rankings since Novak Djokovic in 2011. At the 2012 US Open, Murray became the first British player since 1977, and the first British man since 1936, to win a Grand Slam singles tournament, when he defeated Novak Djokovic in the final, a feat that earned him a third-place trophy in the BBC Sport's Personality of the Year awards. In July 2013, Murray won the 2013 Wimbledon Championships, becoming the first British player to win a Wimbledon senior singles title since Virginia Wade in 1977, and the first British man to win the men's singles title since Fred Perry, 77 years previously. In 2016, he won his second Wimbledon title to become the first British man to win multiple Wimbledon singles titles since Perry in 1935. Murray is the men's singles 2012 and 2016 Olympic gold medallist, defeating Roger Federer in the 2012 final and Juan Martín del Potro in the 2016 final. He is the only tennis player, male or female, to have won two Olympic singles titles. He featured in Great Britain's Davis Cup-winning team in 2015, going 11-0 in his matches (8 singles and 3 doubles) as they secured their first Davis Cup title since 1936. He partnered with his older brother, Jamie, in the doubles. Following his first Wimbledon title in 2013, Murray was voted the 2013 BBC Sports Personality of the Year. He repeated the feat in 2015, while the Davis Cup team won the BBC Sports Personality Team of the Year Award.
