#Fact
1Through some of his most victorious moments (Wimbledon 2013), Murray had been coached by retired Czech tennis champ Ivan Lendl (2011 - 2014).
2Murray attended Dunblane Primary School. He was present during the 1996 Dunblane school massacre, when Thomas Hamilton (43) killed 16 children (average age 5) and a teacher (45) before shooting himself; Murray (then 8) took cover in a classroom. Murray says he was too young to understand what was happening and is reluctant to talk about it in interviews, but in his autobiography "Hitting Back" he states that he attended a youth group run by Hamilton, and that his mother Judy gave Hamilton lifts in her car.

#Quote
1You need to figure out what's best for the country and then come to an opinion. I don't think you should judge the thing on emotion, but on what is best economically for Scotland.
2I'm definitely open to change, but at the same time I am quite stubborn.
3It's not the end of the world to lose.
4I don't play any tournaments to come second best.
5I used to think that losing made you more hungry and determined but after my success at the Olympics and the U.S. Open I realise that winning is the biggest motivation.
6A lot of athletes use sports psychologists.
7I don't actually go to that many concerts.
8I hate losing.
9I love music. I listen to a lot of it.
10I never read. The paper or anything. I watch a lot of movies, and TV series and stuff. But I never, ever read.
11I play fantasy basketball and fantasy football, soccer.
12Having a normal knee would make life a lot easier.
13I am not anti-English, and I never was.
14I am not stroppy at all.
15I am Scottish. I am also British.
16I believe you should give 100% on the court, so I chase every ball.
17Boxing, mixed martial arts and tennis are the hardest sports to train for.
18Contrary to my image, I do have a sense of humour.
19Everybody always talks about the pressure of playing at Wimbledon, how tough it is, but the people watching make it so much easier to play.
20Everything in tennis is so neat and nice but boxing has sport down to its essence; it is very pure and I like that.
21For me, by far, the Olympics is the biggest sporting event in the world.
22I tend not to argue about things that I don't believe in.
23I think most players would love, at one stage in their career, to say, 'I've been No. 1 in the world.'
24I've never felt nervous in front of big crowds and in big stadiums.
25I've realised over the years I play my best when I have time to prepare for each tournament as best as possible.
26If you want a player to serve and volley more, you need to teach them to do that more, how to move at the net.
27In tennis, it is not the opponent you fear, it is the failure itself, knowing how near you were but just out of reach.
28It's easy to start over-thinking things and over-analysing things.
29Like most guys, I've always liked watches. I can always check the time on my phone, but having a watch is so much better.
30My fitness trainer's English, my physio's English, some of my friends are English. I don't have a problem with English people at all.
31Normally I sleep for 9, 10 hours a night.
32Obviously you try to keep as much of your private life as private as you can.
33One of the things I would have loved to have had was a family that worked better together, although I love my mother and father to bits.
34Sometimes you're looking to play perfect tennis but it's not going to happen all the time and you have to accept it.
35Tennis is an individual sport, and I am quite a self-conscious person.
36The only pressure I feel is the pressure I put on myself to win.
37There is a fear of emotion in tennis.
38To be honest, I think bananas are a pathetic fruit.
39Well, my mum's been a tennis coach - she coached me till I was 12.
40When I'm at home, I enjoy going go-karting.
41When I'm in Miami I like to go and watch basketball, the Miami Heat.
42When I'm training in December, I have to eat like 6,000 calories a day to maintain my weight. It's a bit tiring.
43You are always talking about yourself and tennis and how you are feeling. I try to avoid it when I don't have to.
44You can't focus on other people's careers. Everybody is different.
45You have to go into each match believing you can beat all of the players.
46A lot of the players are very complimentary about each other; they embrace at the end of matches because the level of the tennis has been so good. I think that's something that tennis has got to be proud of.
47I don't want a flashy car, just something that would allow me to stop using the Tube. And it would be good not to have to rely on my mum all the time, particularly when I have to listen to her singing in her car.
48I've been asked a lot lately if tennis is clean or not. I don't know any more how you judge whether a sport is clean. If one in 100 players is doping, in my eyes that isn't a clean sport.
49People say to me, 'You don't seem that interested in interviews.' Well, you know, I'm not, often. I'm not going to talk tactics with the press, so you are left with talking about how you are feeling; for me, it is not the most interesting thing to be doing.
50When a lot of things are going the wrong way for a country, for a people, when you can't really think of anything worse than a war, you always try to take life on the brighter side and that's how I grew up with my parents.
51When you have beaten guys a few times, you don't want them to think they know how you are going to play them. You have to try and find different ways of beating them. You have to do things they don't expect sometimes, put something unpredictable into your game.
