Andy Murray won the 2016 Wimbledon title in men’s singles
Britain’s Andy Murray won the 2016 Wimbledon title in men’s singles category. It was his second Wimbledon title after he had won it for first time in 2013.
In final match he defeated Canada’s Milos Raonic by 6–4, 7–6(7–3), 7–6(7–2) score.
Andrew Murray, Britain’s most successful tennis player of the Open era, was born on 15 May 1987 to Will and Judy Murray in Glasgow, Scotland. He has an older brother called Jamie with whom he often plays in doubles matches.
He started playing tennis at the age of five despite being born with a bipartite patella, which means his kneecap stayed as two separate bones rather than fusing together. This wasn’t diagnosed until he was 16, at which time he had an operation to fix it, and didn’t play tennis for six months. It still bothers him sometimes to this day.
