Happy 30th Birthday To Andy Murray!

by Tom Gainey | May 15th, 2017, 9:11 am

Andy Murray celebrates his 30th birthday today! Happy Birthday to the World No. 1.

Murray joins Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Stan Wawrinka as 30-somethings in the Top 5. His friend and rival Novak Djokovic turns 30 next Monday.

“I was talking to my team about that a bit yesterday, and everyone sort of says, oh, when you’re 30 or 40, like, they are huge birthday,” Murray said Sunday in Rome. “I have never found that with any birthday. I was saying to the guys in Madrid, the last time I was home on my birthday I was, like, 14.

“I have always been traveling and never been around sort of family or friends on birthdays. They don’t mean that much to me, for me. For my, like, for my daughter’s first birthday, I can see why, for parents and stuff, you know, it’s obviously a big deal. But for me, personally, I don’t take too much notice of them.”

Happy Birthday Andy ….

Awwwww! Come on!!! Andy’s birthday merits some congrats. With Federer and Nadal, their 30th birthdays generated wide attaboys and laudatory remarks on their splendid careers and just how wonderful they are as humans.
So here’s to Andy! In the “wonderful human and splendid career” categories.
In his career, which awaits a statue at Wimbledon next to Perry’s when he retires and instant Hall of Fame election- Andy has a net worth of over 100 million. He brought the big ones home after a forever drought in the UK….Wimbledon, Gold in the London Olympics, made #1, got Davis Cup too after another 0 or so year drought. World Champion trophy. Toss in ANOTHER Wimbledon and Gold Medal, some other Slam, many big wins over other Big 4 players and more times than not, deadly to anyone not named Federer, Djokovic, or Nadal.
He is friggin’ SIR Andy to you (and a serious hock to many Scots).
He is Bud Abbot to Djokovic’s Lou Costello. He has a humanitarian and strange feminist bent.
There will be more to come. Yaaaay, Andy.

(Now to prep for Novak’s 30th. A taste – Roger may have more trophies, but many experts and coaches believe Djokovic is a better allaround player than Roger, or any other player in the Open Era.

Margot Says:

Andy hasn’t had a birthday at home since he was about 16. Probably far more interested in Sophia’s birthdays nowadays.
That being said, I hope Foggy doesn’t deliver a birthday KO.

Van Persie Says:

Happy B-day to Andy!

Colin Says:

Oh dear, the worst happened. Rather than claiming this as another failure for Andy, as the tabloids are already doing, we should be lauding Fognini for an almost flawless performance, of a standard he will probably not be able to repeat in Rome. It must be as nerve-racking to be an Italian Fognini fan as it is to be a British Murray fan. The latter will be thinking the sooner our man is on grass and hard courts, the better.
