What is Andy Murray’s net worth?
Andy’s total net worth is estimated to be in the region of £48-66million.
In 2016 alone he won 78 matches, including nine titles and reached the final of three Grand Slam tournaments, earning him prize money of £10.8 million.
When he won Wimbledon for the first time in 2013, he was the first British player to do so since Fred Perry back in 1936.
Murray likes to invest his money in property and currently lives in a mansion in Oxshott, Surrey, which cost over £5m when he bought it in 2009.
He made a tidy profit from his luxury Miami flat which he sold in 2016 after deciding to spend more time in the UK following the birth of his daughter in February 2016 – he is estimated to have netted a profit of $1.4m.
If you fancy a bit of the Murray luxury yourself you can book a room at his 19th century luxury boutique hotel, where he and Kim Sears held their wedding reception in 2015.
Just outside his hometown of Dunblane, he bought Cromlix House in 2013, and the cheapest double room will set you back £220 a night.
How much did he earn from each tournament in 2016?
The size of the prize money pot obviously depends on the importance of the tournament, and Andy played in 16 of them in 2016.
At the Australian Open in January he finished as runner-up and took home a cool £1,012,980 for his efforts, and in July he lifted the Wimbledon trophy for the second time – which earned him £2m.
Here is what the No 1 has earned from each tournament last year;
- Australian Open – RU £1,012,980
- Indian Wells Masters – 3rd Round £29,236
- Miami Open – 3rd Round £29,236
- Monte Carlo Masters – Semi final £152,095
- Madrid Open – RU £384,613
- Italian Open – Winner £616,332
- French Open – RU £859,222
- Queens Club – Winner £352,452
- Wimbledon – Winner £2,000,000
- Cincinnati Masters – RU £330,358
- US Open – Quarter final £363,235
- China Open – Winner £535,631
- Shanghai Masters – Winner £842,202
- Vienna Open – Winner £367,789
- Paris Masters – Winner £640,896
- ATP World Tour Finals – Winner £1,930,561
What sponsorship deals does Andy Murray have?
The prize money that Andy wins over the course of a year are only part of the Scot’s earnings though.
His sponsorship deals are where he can really top up his bank account and his off court earning potential has soared this year.
He has contracts with Standard Life, Head and Rado as well as a £15m four year deal with sports wear maker Under Armour.
At the beginning of 2016 he signed a partnership with car manufacturer Jaguar.
Andy is the sole shareholder of his company, 77 Management which looks after his business empire.
However the savvy sportsman is selective about the companies he will do deals with. He won’t take on a sponsorship deal if it compromises his principles or impacts on his training schedule regardless of how much money it will earn him.
Who is Andy Murray married to and how many children does he have?
Andy Murray married his long-term partner, Kim Sears in April 2015 at Dunblane Cathedral.
Kim gave birth to their first child, Sophia, in Feburary 2016, and on the first day of Wimbledon 2017, the happy couple announced that they were expecting their second child.
