Scottish-born Andy Murray may have been born with a bipartite patella, but that did not stop him from becoming an exceptional athlete. At age 15 he declined an invitation to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps and train for a career in football, choosing instead to focus on his tennis game. In 2005 he turned pro and received a wildcard at Wimbledon, going in ranked 374th in the world but making it to the 3rd round – the only Scotsman to do so in the open era. Just one year later, Murray won the SAP Open, his first ATP title. At age 25, he captured his first Grand Slam title at the 2012 US Open. In 2013, he thrilled his home crowd by winning Wimbledon and dazzled the crowd with an emotional speech following the trophy presentation. He married long time girlfriend Kim Sears in 2015.
