    Jonny Marray

    Jonny Marray

    From the ATP website - his bio information

    • Age: 31 (10.03.1981)
    • Birthplace: Liverpool, England
    • Residence: London, England
    • Height: 6'2" (188 cm)
    • Weight: 168 lbs (76 kg)
    • Plays: Right-handed
    • Turned Pro: 2000
    • Coach: Louis Cayer

    Born in Liverpool…Resides in London…As a wild card, recorded his first two tour-level singles wins to reach third round of the 2004 Queen's Club, falling to Hewitt in two tie-breaks…

    By playing at the 2012 Australian Open, Marray competed in all four Grand Slam doubles events, having made his first appearance at Wimbledon in 2002, Roland Garros in 2010 and the US Open in 2011...

    With Frederik Nielsen became the first wild card team to clinch the Wimbledon doubles title in 2012.
    In fact, this is Jonny's ONLY title - one heck of a one to win!!!


    "Marray ends 52-year wait and celebrates with tea"
    As droughts go this one had lasted only the 52 years. Jonny Marray yesterday became the first Briton to make the men's double final since 1960 after he and his Danish partner, Freddie Nielsen, stunned the defending champions Mike and Bob Bryan.
    The last Britons in the final were Bobby Wilson and Mike Davies while the last British success came in 1936, the same year Fred Perry won his last singles title.
    "Marray, described as the last serve-and-volleyer left in tennis by his partner, spent his £75 winner's gift voucher on a tea set. "He likes tea," said Nielsen."
    The off-topic queen strikes again ...................

    This is quite amazing. We wait all these years to get a Brit in a men's Wimbledon final, and then, just like buses, two come along at once.

    Tennis Space - Winbledon Diary: Marray and now Murray
    A few days before the tournament, the Wimbledon trophy took a tour outside of Britain for the first time, travelling with ESPN to the United States, where it got picked up, fondled and passed around almost like a new-born baby. It did, however, throw up something I didn’t know before. The title of the men’s trophy reads: “All England Lawn Tennis Club Single Handed Championship of the World.” Now forget about the World Series-esque ludicrousness of it all. What’s more worrying is the “single-handed” bit – does that mean Murray, with two hands on his backhand, wouldn’t be allowed to win but Federer would?!
