ANDY MURRAY SECURES STUTTGART QUARTERFINAL OVER BUBLIK

Andy Murray played another solid match in Stuttgart taking down Alexander Bublik in straight sets 6-3 7-6(4) for the quarterfinal.

Murray played plenty of grass matches this season starting the season early last week in Surbiton. He continued the strong form today in Stuttgart against Bublik who counts grass as his favourite surface. Both players opened well but Murray was a bit sharper both serving and in rallies. That allowed him to exert coms early pressure on Bublik but he saved the break point.

Judy Murray Biography, Wiki, Age, Career, Husband, Net Worth | Who is Judy Murray? Bio, Wiki

Murray began playing tennis at the age of three when his mother Judy took him to play on the local courts. He played in his first competitive tournament at age five and by the time he was eight he was competing with adults in the Central District Tennis League. Murray’s elder brother, Jamie, is also a professional tennis player, playing on the doubles circuit, and became a multiple Grand Slam winner in the discipline (both men’s and mixed).

Murray grew up in Dunblane and attended Dunblane Primary School.  Murray later attended Dunblane High School. At 15, he was asked to train with Rangers Football Club at their School of Excellence, but declined, opting to focus on his tennis career instead. He then decided to move to Barcelona, Spain. There he studied at the Schiller International School and trained on the clay courts of the Sánchez-Casal Academy, coached by Pato Alvarez. Murray was born with a bipartite patella, a condition in which the kneecap remains as two separate bones instead of fusing together in early childhood, but was not diagnosed until the age of 16.

He identifies himself as a feminist, and has been repeatedly vocal in his support for women players and coaches. He is also a vocal supporter of LGBT rights and supports same-sex marriage. In January 2021, prior to his trip to Melbourne for the Australian Open, Murray tested positive for COVID-19 and remained in quarantine and isolating at home, eventually missing the tournament.

Andy Murray Career

Originally coached by his mother Judy alongside his older brother Jamie, Murray moved to Barcelona at age 15 to train at the Sánchez-Casal Academy. He began his professional career around the time Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal established themselves as the two dominant players in men’s tennis. Murray had immediate success on the ATP Tour, making his top 10 debut in 2007 at age 19. By 2010, Murray and Novak Djokovic had separated themselves from the rest of men’s tennis, joining Federer and Nadal in the Big Four, the group of players who dominated men’s tennis during the 2010s. Murray initially struggled against the rest of the Big Four, losing his first four Grand Slam finals, three to Federer and one to Djokovic. He made his major breakthrough in 2012 by defeating Djokovic to win the US Open. With this title, he became the first British Grand Slam singles champion since Virginia Wade in 1977, and the first male champion since Fred Perry in 1936. A month earlier, he won the men’s singles gold medal against Federer at the 2012 London Olympics.

From 2013 through 2016, Murray reached another six major finals. He won two of these encounters, at Wimbledon in 2013 and 2016. Murray had his career-best season in 2016. During that year, Murray made three major finals, winning Wimbledon. He also defended his title at the 2016 Rio Olympics to become the only player, male or female, to win two Olympic gold medals in singles. Murray also became world No. 1 for the first time and clinched the year-end No. 1 ranking by winning his only ATP Finals against Djokovic. Since 2016, he has struggled with various injuries and fell out of the top 100 in 2018 due to only seldom playing on tour.
