James (Jamie) Murray

1986 -

Tennis player. Born in Glasgow and brought up in Dunblane, the elder brother of tennis-star Andy Murray (b.1987). Their mother, Judy, is a respected tennis coach and both brothers began playing at an age. Turning professional in 2004, Murray prefers doubles and in this game he has excelled. He remained in the shadow of his brother for many years, but came to the fore when he won the Mixed Doubles title at Wimbledon in 2007, the first British Wimbledon champion for two decades. His partner was Serb Jelena Jankovic. Murray had been a member of the British Davis Cup team earlier in the same year.
