Andy Murray sets record earnings through management company

Andy Murray is not going through the best time in his career - the Brit already ended his 2018 season last week in Shenzhen to prepare as best as possible for 2019 - but he is still earning much money from his investments.

According to Daily Mail, Murray's 77 Management company, re-founded in 2013 when the 31-year-old became the first British player to win Wimbledon 77 years after Fred Perry - is now £25 million worth, +£3 million than December 2017.

It owns several properties like the Cremlix Hotel Murray owns near Dunblane. Neil Grainger, Murray's accountant and director of 77 management, said that tennis is still the priority for Murray rather than just making money in endorsements.

'The principal activity of the company is to market and turn to profit the name, fame and image and marketing rights of sporting personalities', Grainger explained. 'The directors are satisfied with the trading results of the company.

As with all exploitation of rights, there cannot be any certainty that future activity will continue to reflect the past but the directors are confident that the company will continue to show profitable results in the future.' Last week at the Shenzhen Open Murray took advantage of Zhang's retirement when Andy was leading 4-2 in the third set, then defeated the Belgian David Goffin 6-3 6-4 and his run ended in the quarter-finals against the Spaniard Fernando Verdasco, who prevailed in straight sets, 6-4 6-4.

Just a few hours after that, when it was around midnight in China, Murray withdrew from Beijing to end his 2018 season. ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
