9781471132742: Andy Murray Wimbledon Champion

When Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal both exited in the first few days of Wimbledon 2013, the level of expectation on Andy Murray to become the first British champion of the men's competition since 1936 rose to new heights. Two sets down in the quarter-final, he recovered to keep alive the hopes of a nation. Then, on a boiling hot Sunday afternoon, Murray faced up to the world's best player, Novak Djokovic, with the title almost within his grasp. After three hours of tension, drama and sheer brilliance, Murray was Wimbledon champion and 17.3 million viewers, glued to the action, celebrated with him after his straight-sets victory. But how had the man from Dunblane, Scotland, a country once characterised as the worst tennis nation in the world, risen to the top?

About the Author:

Mark Hodgkinson, the founder and editor of thetennisspace.com, first met Andy Murray when the Scot, then aged 17, was living in a bungalow at an academy outside Barcelona. A former tennis correspondent for the Daily Telegraph, Hodgkinson has written a short television feature about Wimbledon for the BBC, contributes to British GQ, and wrote the tennis features in the official programme for the London 2012 Olympics. During his time at The Daily Telegraph, he helped Judy Murray with the articles and columns which appeared under her name, in addition to his other role at the paper as Boris Becker's 'ghost'. Hodgkinson lives in south-west London with Amy and their daughter Molly.
