Andy Murray made history today by becoming the first British player in 77 years to win the Wimbledon men’s singles since Fred Perry’s victory in 1936. To put things in perspective, this was also the year of the first NFL Draft and the year Jesse Owens captured four Gold Medals at the Berlin Olympics. To say it’s been a long time coming is an understatement. Murray downed Novak Djokovic 6-4, 7-5, 6-4, winning his first Wimbledon title and the second Grand Slam title of his career, slotting him as the No. 2 in ATP rankings.
The 26-year old Murray is now the current US Open and Wimbledon title holder, as well as an Olympic Gold Medalist. In November 2009, he signed a five-year deal with adidas $16.5 million. Upon signing, Murray was quoted as saying: “I’m really excited to be joining adidas as they are a massive global sports brand with a credible heritage in tennis. Joining a list of stars who have worn this like Muhammad Ali and David Beckham is an honour. This deal will help me on and off court.”
When it comes to tennis shoes, the Scottish pro has always shown a strong loyalty to adidas and their Barricade line, but he’s also been spotted in other brands throughout the years.
