What we all know about Andy Murray is that he is a professional tennis player. He is taciturn in nature and if he ever does decide to talk, it is with a Scottish drawl in his accent. He is not a man who wears his emotions on his sleeve (Brits by nature are non-expressive people) but then again he did shed some tears after a match at Wimbledon.

His triangular rivalry with Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic is legendary. What we do not know for sure is if any one of the above would eventually beat Rafael and Nadal and take his number one tennis position in the world and also the snippets of information given below about the ace shuttler.

• This stellar athlete has a congenital condition known as bipartite patella, in which the kneecap does not fuse together but remains on separate bones. Due to this condition he has had a number of knee problems throughout his career.
• His favorite musician in 50 Cent. Shocking? I’d think so.

• He is highly superstitious like most of his peers. One of his idiosyncrasies involve not touching a trophy that he has not won as he believes that this will bring his nothing but bad luck.

• As a child, he was caught up in the traumatizing Dunblane massacre of 1996 when a gunman named Thomas Hamilton shot and killed sixteen children and a teacher. He was acquainted with Hamilton on those days.

• He is quite the Karaoke singer. He once wore an Afro wig and sang the famous Jackson Five hit single I want you back on Television during the 2010 French Open.

• His dog Maggie May, named after the Rod Stewart hit song, and has a twitter account with more than six thousand eight hundred followers.

• Once Andy Murray accidentally locked himself in the bathroom of the hotel he was staying which nearly made him miss the BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year award.

• His manager is the famous Simon Fullere who has been manager to certain celebrities including the band Spice Girls.

• He once bough a Ferrari but sold it off later on as he thought it was too ostentatious and didn’t fit his style

• He can eat up to forty five pieces of raw fish otherwise known as ‘Sushi’ in one go. Apparently it is some kind of nutrition programme.
