    About " Andy Murray "

  • Andy Murray

    Andy Murray is a British tennis player.After turning pro in 2005, Andy won his first ATP title, the SAP open in San Jose, a year later Fast forward two years and seven tour titles, Andy reached his first grand slam final, the 2008 US Open However in 2012, having lost in three subsequent grand slam final appearances, Andy became the US Open Champion This was hot on the heels of an illustrious Gold Medal victory at Wimbledon during the London 2012 Olympics Andy then ended years of British heartbreak on the same turf just a year later by becoming the first British male in 77 years to win the highly coveted Wimbledon Championships in London in July 2013.


  • I would not advise reading this book on Kindle. I think it's such a lovely 'picture' book it's nicer in Hardback which is the version I bought.It has a photograph on every page. The story covers Andy's Wimbledon win, the start of his career, his wins, his losses, the Olympics, his first Grand Slam win at the US Open and although he does touch on his personal life there is not a great deal of detail and I'm fine with that as I know Andy is a very private person. He certainly doesn't seek the lime [...]

  • Devoured this on Boxing day lots of great pictures. I could hear Andy's "voice" throughout the book. As a fan of his, it was a nice insight and retelling of the the last couple of years, with a few forays further back. My rating reflects the level of my personal enjoyment of the book, don't know if I would recommend it to non fans though!

  • I may be biased because I am a massive Andy Murray fan, but this book was AMAZING on many levels. Now, I'm new to writing my thoughts about books that I've just finished, so bare with me. The way this book was written made it feel like the person reading it is actually living the moment. I relived every match Andy talked about, I got goosebumps with the wins and losses, I even teared when I read about the Olympics and Wimbledon wins. Readers see another angle of Andy Murray's personality, which [...]

  • Not my usual reading subject matter, but Andy Murray's 'Seventy-Seven' was passed to me by a friend. Just over two hundred pages and printed in a large font, I volleyed this over the net in a few hours.'Seventy-Seven' is titled from the number of years since the last British tennis player, (Fred Perry), won the Wimbledon Men's Singles title. It isn't likely I'll live long enough to witness this feat again, so reason enough to enjoy Andy's journey to his Grand Slam.

  • As a Murray fan this only furthered my love for him!! Found it quite emotional at times and raced through it in 2 sittings.Written, pre Davis Cup win, I'd love to read another with Andy's take on the GB success. Quick, uplifting read!

  • For me, as a tennis player, it was inspiring to read this wonderful book, because I was travelling with him while reading and remembering experiences of mine too. I recommend it so so much! Thanks Andy for this adventure you shared with us!

  • Great read! It's memoirs like these that help you see the human side behind professional athletes such as Andy.I think this read went as expected in that you read about Andy's feelings, the nerves and pressure, before during and after Wimbledon 2013. But there was something in it that absolutely shocked me, and that was the fact that Andy was a survivor of a school shooting! I'll always feel so bad for him for having to go through that.As someone who loves tennis, has played varsity high school [...]

  • Short and honestThis book is like an expanded magazine article with many photos.It gives insight into Andy Murrays career and emotions for those of us who have followed his progress on the tennis courts over the years. Some of the photos are excellent.Andy has managed to express what it is like to be inside his skin and for that alone the book is worth reading.

  • I won this book in a raffle. It was much more interesting than I thought it would be. Good insight into Andy's development as a player

  • This book is essentially a celebration of Andy Murray's glorious victory at Wimbledon 2013 and majorly focusses on the two most eventful years of Murray's career - 2012 and 2013 ; a journey that starts with a disappointment at 2012 Wimbledon finals and culminates with the glory at the 2013 edition, with an Olympic gold at 2012 London Olympics on the way. I expected this book to be a little more. Actually, this book would (at best) represent only couple of chapters in Andy Murray's autobiography [...]

  • Andy Murray is one of the best tennis players in the world, he has won many Grand Slam Titles and is ranked #3 in the world. He has faced countless obstacles, The United Kingdom had not produced a Grand Slam winner in decades and Murray was the one to end that drought. This novel does a great job of explaining Andy Murray’s journey and where he came from. I was very impressed with the sophistication of his own writing, especially since he is a professional tennis player and not an author. He d [...]

  • An absolute must have for any Andy Murray fan! Andy talks us through all his trials and tribulations both on and off court. From winning the US Open, his loss in the 2012 Wimbledon Final, his revenge in the Olympic final and his eventual domination in the 2013 Wimbledon final.He also let's us in on some of the personal aspects of his life such as finding out about his best friends cancer, his relationship with Kim, his parents divorce and that event in Dunblane.Sure some bits are a bit repetitiv [...]

  • I was slow to warm up to Andy Murray as a tennis player after viewing the BBC documentary referred to in this book (do search it out, it was very interesting) and reading this book, I am definitely a bigger fan! I admit, I was hoping he would speak more about the impact of certain formative events in his life (e.g the incident at his school in Dunblane) but I understand the sensitivity involved with that. I appreciated that he shared his train of thought with us and allowed us "in his head" duri [...]

  • A pleasant, light read. It's not particularly detailed but still has enough to be interesting. I really appreciated the focus on a few key matches; even though I already knew the outcomes having followed at least Wimbledon and the Olympics, there was still plenty of anticipation. The hardcover format is excellent and it's a very aesthetically pleasing book. The large, beautiful photos with captions are brilliant. I'd recommend this book if you're a fan, but not if you don't follow Andy/Tennis or [...]

  • This is a great momento for any Andy Murray fan, covering his major success over the last couple of years in the grand slams and the London Olympics.It doesn't take long to read but it is much better written than his first book and has been put together really well with fantastic photos throughout (you'd be silly to buy this in ebook format!). I even found myself getting a bit emotional at times because I have my own personal memories of these events and it's nice to read it in his owns words an [...]

  • For those who like sports biographies, this is an excellent choice. For those who love tennis too, this is a must. Whilst not quite as insightful as Agassi's book, which is the best of its kind I have read so far, Andy does go beyond the surface and shows how he thinks and what makes him tick. The photos are top quality and add to the story. The final parts of this book are revealing and emotional. Highly recommended.

  • I received this book as a Christmas present from a friend and I could not wait to start reading it. I have always been a die hard Murray fan and I am even more so after finishing this book. Murray showed the audience his character by sharing his story. He is honest, funny and truly likeable. Unfortunately it had a couple of spelling mistakes and grammatical mistakes - which I found frustrating.

  • I would give the narrative 1 star and the photography 5 stars. I am a huge Andy Murray fan but learned very little about the person from this book. if you have seen the BBC documentary, then there is very little new material in this book.I was hoping for a bit more description of his mental state and thoughts at key points in his matches rather than a shot by shot account.It's an easy read, but I don't feel the book revealed very much of his character.

  • Somewhat bland compared to other tennis autobiographies. Not as insightful as Agassi's Open but then again this was written quite a while ago. If I were a die-hard tennis fan I'd rather buy this in EPUB format as its cheaper and wait for Andy to retire for him to really open up, but I have a feeling its going to be in the same vein as Sampras's autbiography, which felt as though it was written by a robot.

  • I really enjoyed reading this. I've always been a fan of Andy Murray and was fascinated to find out what he did in his training, how his team around him work and his outlook on life and his career. This is a must read if you are a Murray fan and I thought he came across as very down to earth and his captions for his pictures were very witty.

  • A nicely made book. Tells the story of Murrays last few years well. Of course illustrating means you need fewer words so don't over stretch the story. But shows how pictures can empower a narrative. Some great shots - not always done full justice by the square format of the book.

  • An open account of the trials and tribulations and successes, with great pictures, but does not work well on a kindle

  • Went back to tradition to read this in hardback. As the other reviews say, there are loads of fab photos which makes it a really great book. Really enjoyed it, but I am a huge tennis fan.

  • Great photosAn easy skim readNot particularly literary, more a blow by blow description of his desire to win grand slamsEnjoyed it as a tennis fan
