Andy Murray: 4 stats underlying incredible Wimbledon legacy

Andy Murray has a remarkable Wimbledon record.

One of the most remarkable chapters in Wimbledon history has come to a rather unfortunate ending.

An opening-round withdrawal is far from the ending anyone wanted to see for Andy Murray, but the former world No 1 will now bow out with a final doubles campaign at the All England Club.

It is not the farewell people hoped for or expected, but Murray’s legacy at Wimbledon is secured.

As the Brit approached the final stages of his career, we look at four fascinating stats that highlight his amazing SW19 career.


We’ll start with the obvious: the number of times Murray was able to lift the title at his home Grand Slam tournament.

Murray reached the final for the first time in 2012, suffering a heartbreaking four-set loss to Roger Federer – a fourth Slam final defeat in as many matches for the Brit.

However, he responded emphatically the following year, beating Novak Djokovic in straight sets to win the second major of his career – and end a 77-year wait for a British men’s singles winner at Wimbledon.

Three years later, he regained his title, beating Milos Raonic – again in straight sets – for his second victory at the All England Club.

He is one of just 12 men who have won multiple Wimbledon titles during the Open Era.

Murray has made 15 appearances in the men’s singles draw at Wimbledon, starting with his maiden appearance in 2005 as an 18-year-old wildcard, now ending with his campaign in 2023.

And, impressively, the 37-year-old holds an impressive 15-0 record in round one matches at the tournament.

His first win came 19 years ago over George Bastl, beating the Swiss qualifier in straight sets, ultimately reaching the third round on his maiden showing.

Other notable opening-round wins for Murray include over Benjamin Becker in 2013 – the match that started his maiden title run – and his final-ever Wimbledon win, versus Ryan Peniston last summer.


Wimbledon is by far and away Murray’s most successful Slam, and that is reflected in the number of match wins he has at the tournament.

“Game, set, and match Murray” has been called 61 times at the All England Club, with the Brit holding a hugely impressive 61-13 record at the tournament – a win rate of 82%.

That places Murray sixth all-time in terms of men’s singles match wins at Wimbledon in the Open Era, with only Pete Sampras, Boris Becker, Jimmy Connors, Novak Djokovic, and Roger Federer ahead of him.

Murray was always a factor at SW19 in his prime, shown by his incredibly consistent record of 10 straight quarter-finals reached at the tournament.

That run started in 2008, when he memorably beat Richard Gasquet from two sets down to reach the last eight for the first time, beaten by eventual champion Rafael Nadal in his first Wimbledon quarter-final.

He proceeded to reach at least the last eight every year until 2018 – when he was absent from the tournament due to injury.

The Brit only lost three of his ten quarter-finals, losing in four semi-finals, and ultimately winning two of his three finals.
