Andy Murray: The Story So Far...

Andy Murray: The Story So Far...

by RobRobertson (Author), EleanorPreston (Author)

Synopsis

At Wimbledon 2005, a new star burst onto the international tennis scene. Andy Murray, the eighteen-year-old wild card, confounded all expectations to make it through to the third round, and his courage when facing some of the biggest names in the game captured the imagination of the public and the media. Since his sensational arrival at SW19, Murray has gone on to establish himself as the British No. 1 thanks to a meteoric rise through the rankings. His amazing progress has seen him defeat Tim Henman at the Davidoff Indoor Championship in Basel, Switzerland, take on world No. 1 Roger Federer in the final of the Thailand Open in Bangkok and win his first ATP tournament in San Jose, beating Andy Roddick and Lleyton Hewitt along the way. Murray is now widely viewed as one of the most exciting prospects in the sport. "Andy Murray: The Story So Far..." charts the teenage tennis star's enthralling career to date from his success in the juniors to the sacking of Mark Petchey as his coach in April 2006, leaving nothing out along the way.
