Andy Murray's huge net worth, 'strain' on marriage and fallout with brother (2024)

Sir Andy Murray is back at Wimbledon for what is set to be the final time with the tennis legend expected to bring down the curtain on his glittering career this summer.

The 37-year-old revealed he won't be competing in this year's men's singles competition, having undergone surgery to remove a cyst from his spine last month. He will, however, still be taking part in the doubles competitions, teaming up with fellow British Grand Slam winner Emma Raducanu in the mixed event.

Before that, however, Murray is taking to Centre Court on Thursday afternoon as he teams up with his brother Jamie for the men's doubles. The pair, who hail from Dunblane in Scotland, have never played doubles together at Wimbledon but did lead Great Britain to Davis Cup glory back in 2015.

Both men have enjoyed successful careers, with Jamie winning seven Grand Slam titles in doubles and mixed doubles and Andy going down in history as one of the greatest male tennis players ever, having won 46 titles, including two Wimbledon and one US Open championship, as well as two Olympic gold medals.

Of course, like all families, the brothers have had their rough patches, while Murray has been open about his marriage and family life too. Here's everything you need to know about the man off the court, from his staggering net worth to his very public fallout with his brother.

Stunning net worth

As one of the most successful tennis players of his generation, Murray has amassed a huge fortune, having won a total of just over £50 million over the course of his playing career.

Of course, as with most athletes, he makes plenty of money off the court as well, having signed endorsem*nt deals and sponsorship partnerships with the likes of Jaguar, Castore, Under Armour and Head. He has also teamed up with other big brands including Amazon Prime Video, Standard Life and American Express over the years.

All of that means he has a staggering net worth that is estimated to be around £85 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. However, other sources have put it closer to £100 million.

Murray has invested much of his money in property, living in a huge mansion in Oxshott, Surrey, which set him back over £5 million when he bought it back in 2009. He has also netted huge profits from selling other properties, including a flat in Miami, while he bought the five-star country house hotel Cromlix House, situated just outside his home town, for £1.8 million back in 2014.

Wife, kids and 'selfish' marriage claim

Murray married Kim Sears - the daughter of tennis coach Nigel Sears - in 2015, a decade after meeting at a party at the 2005 US Open. They had gone public with their relationship a year after they met, with the tennis ace running through the crowd after winning his first tournament in California to give his girlfriend a kiss.

After getting engaged in 2014, they tied the knot the following year and are now parents to four children - Sophia, eight, Edie, six Teddy, four, and Lola, three. As most parents would understand, while speaking to This Morning's Alison Hammond in 2021, Murray said his proudest achievement in his life was getting all four children to bed on time.

Kim has become a famous face in her own right and is often seen cheering Murray on from the stands during major tournaments. She has been known to get a little too fired-up, however, as she was caught on camera during the Scot's Wimbledon semi-final victory over Tomas Berdych in 2015 saying: “F****** have that you flash Czech f***".

After being awarded a knighthood in the Queen's New Year Honours in 2016 for services to tennis and charity, Murray later joked that his wife Kim would have to mind her swearing upon becoming a Lady. "She’s going to have to [do] no more swearing during my matches any more, for any of you who saw that a few years ago," he laughed.

Being a professional athlete can put a strain on relationships, however, and Murray has admitted that he has been guilty of being "selfish" towards his family at points in his career. After a hip injury forced him into a lengthy lay-off from tennis, the star admitted it had tested their marriage but praised his wife for being "brilliant" in her approach to the tough situation.

"I was pretty down, that's for sure," he said. "It was a really tough period for me because it wasn't so much the actual injury itself. Being injured can be frustrating, but the issue that I had was with me every single day, sleeping and walking. It wasn't just I hit a serve and my arm hurt. This woke me up in the night. It was bad.

"I don't know if the children noticed because when I'm with them I'm always trying to put on a brave face, but my wife definitely. It put a lot of strain on our relationship, just because I was down all the time," he added. "She has been brilliant and I would probably be quite selfish, just in terms of thinking about myself and how I'm feeling all the time and not actually realising the impact that has on all the people around me."

Public fallout with brother

Andy has always been close with his brother Jamie, who is a year and three months older than him. However, as two competitive athletes, they have also had their fair share of arguments over the years.

Back in 2008, the siblings had a public fallout following Andy's decision to drop out of Great Britain's Davis Cup first-round tie against Argentina over fears he could aggravate a knee injury. Jamie was furious at the decision, as he played the match alongside Ross Hutchins instead and fell to a defeat.

"It kind of affects the way we feel about him," he said. "I think it's disappointing he chose not to come. From what I have been reading he hasn't come out and said he's injured, it's more a prevention thing. I think if he had really wanted to push himself he could have come here for the match.

"It was a shock for me and for the team. I was not aware he had a problem. From his point of view, I guess he doesn't have anything to apologise for as he's taken the decision not to come.

"If he had come here, he would have caused them problems because he has the ability to win singles matches, he's a world-class player. He's been in the top 10 and not by fluke. I think he would have liked to come here and had the crowd against him, he plays better in those circ*mstances."

Andy soon hit back at his brother's comments as he said: "It was a little bit disappointing. But he obviously felt pretty strongly about it and he's entitled to his opinion. If he knew what it was like playing three five-set matches in a row on clay then maybe he'd understand my position a little bit better.

"I've not spoken to him yet. I'll see him soon. I guess we'll have to have a chat about it and just discuss our feelings on Davis Cup and the sort of position that I am in, but it's probably not going to be the most fun conversation to have with your brother."

The pair didn't speak for two weeks - but made up in the end!
