Description - Andy Murray by Rob Robertson

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 the biggest names in the game captured the imagination of the public and the media. Murray is widely viewed as one of the most exciting prospects in the sport today but his has not been an easy journey. He survived the massacre at Dunblane Primary School, when gunman Thomas Hamilton killed sixteen pupils and a teacher in the worst incident of its kind in British history. Murray is understandably reluctant to talk about the tragedy but has been quoted as saying- Sometimes I wonder if it shaped me in some way, helped to make me the person I am, more determined to do something with my life. s the world watches his progress with growing fascination, bookmakers William Hill are now offering odds of 10 1 that Murray will be world No. 1 in five years time. Watch this space . . .
