Gerard Butler, Karen Gillan and Andy Murray are the most googled Scots, reveals the data provider SEMrush. Despite all the setbacks in the last couple of years, Andy is still the most recognized athlete in Scotland, thrilling the entire world of tennis after making a strong comeback in 2019.
Battling against Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic for years, Andy grabbed three Major titles and 11 Masters 1000 trophies, standing above the rivals behind him and standing tall with 46 ATP titles in his cabinet.
Back in 2016, Murray raised his game to another level, finishing the season with nine trophies and 78 wins in total, battling for the year-end no. 1 spot with Novak Djokovic and securing it after conquering Beijing, Shanghai, Vienna, Paris and the ATP Finals, producing one of the strongest finishes in the Open era and becoming world no.
1 for the first time in November. Andy stayed at the top until Wimbledon next year but the challenging previous season had to leave a mark on him, struggling with a hip injury and missing all the action after the All England Club where he lost in the quarter-final.
Undergoing surgery in January 2018, Andy returned to the court at Queen's, playing 12 matches that year and opting for another surgery in January 2019 after that epic clash against Roberto Bautista Agut at the Australian Open.
Determined to extend his career, Murray won the doubles title at Queen's with Feliciano Lopez for a perfect comeback, focusing on singles events a couple of months later and winning the first ATP title since Dubai 2017 in Antwerp in October, moving closer to the place in the top-100.
At the Davis Cup Finals, Andy suffered another setback, experiencing a pelvic injury that forced him to skip the ATP Cup, the Australian Open and other events at the beginning of 2020. With no tennis around at least until June, Andy has been working hard on another return, having enough time to recover completely and continue his tennis journey that has been one bumpy road in the last three years.
