We couldn’t help noticing how much Andy Murray has gained the interest, support and respect of many more over the 2012 year. So much so, that Roger Federer commented on how he’s come on in recent years, with his first Masters 1000 win a few years ago, followed by the Olympic Gold and Grand Slam win in quick succession over 2012. ATP ranked No.1 Federer said:
“Andy Murray is playing great and only going to get stronger in the next couple of years.”
However, it’s not just the fact that he can win, but also his strong emotions: After losing a close Wimbledon final against Roger Federer – which some say he would have won had the roof stayed off – he was clearly distraught. He gave a heart-warming speech, and cried.
Then, he really did prove he was “getting closer” at Wimbledon when he went all the way at the Olympics, but even after the match he still had the energy to show compassion by giving a little boy a hug, and no-one can forget the US Open – over the 2012 summer he won Britain’s heart. He continued this trend in the first tournament of 2013, having won in Brisbane – Andy dedicated his victory to his friend and Davis Cup partner; Ross Hutchins, who had recently been diagnosed with cancer.
Murray’s a true role-model, not only to tennis players, but to everyone.
