Andy Murray’s Style
You may have heard a little about this guy recently, you know… a gold medal at the Olympics and his first Grand Slam, not bad going. As I write this, it’s the morning after him having beaten Novak Djokovic in a five set thriller in New York making him the first British man since 1936 to win a major title. Since the focus is all on him at the moment, it seems a better time than ever to take a look at his on-court style, provided by brands we also happen to love – Fred Perry and adidas.
Fred Perry was one of the greatest tennis players these little islands have ever produced and the apparel that shares his name isn’t too bad either! Up until the end of 2009 you could see Murray sporting their wares; having worn Fred Perry clothing since making his senior breakthrough as a teenager but had long been tipped to sign for one of the industry giants – Nike or adidas. It was a shrewd move for a British brand to sponsor an emerging young talent like Murray, which led to Fred Perry being adopted as the apparel of choice for many budding tennis players on courts up and down the UK.
Last night’s showdown was made even more interesting when you consider that Adidas refused to extend Djokovic’s contract back in 2009 because instead they decided to sign a long-term deal with, you guessed it – Andy Murray. Was this seen as a move towards the player who they considered to be the better of the two over the next five years? After last night’s British success, maybe they were right.
