With deals from such big names, one surely can afford the luxury of collecting cars or even mansions. Yes, Murray, happens to own a lot a property than one would have thought. He happens to own a couple of estates worth, well let’s say a fortune, and mansions in England and Scotland. Murray, recently bid the Crimlox House Hotel for £2 million, which apparently sits in 36 acres of landscaped grounds that is a 2,000-acre estate which includes four fishing lochs as well as two mineral springs. Add to that, the property has its own chapel as well as trout loch. And not to forget the £5.45 million house boasting a triple garage, a cinema and a Jacuzzi.

His craze for cars is pretty evident from his collection which range from a Merc Banz GL to a Ferrari to a Porsche Cayenne. It’s not the cars or dream holiday vacations to the Bahamas or Miami that seem to excite him, it’s the video games that do the trick.

 

He does empathise

Well, one can easily mistake him to be pretty lavish or even call him a spend-thrift, but he puts all such comments to mute with interest in charity and social causes. Murray has been associated with ‘Global Fund,’ which aims to combat AIDS, Tuberculosis as well as Malaria, ‘Make-a-wish Foundation’ which is dedicated to fulfilling wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

 

She’s the ‘one’

Coming to his relationships, Andy is the one-woman man. The only girl he’s ever been spotted with is his long term girlfriend Kim Sears. Sears is a 25-year-old artist. She specializes in animal portraits, and shares several of her paintings on her website. Murray revealed on Twitter that their dogs, Maggie and Rusty, were allowed to sleep in bed after his win. If rumours are to be believed, Sears may soon become Mrs. Murray. Fans are speculating that Murray may be ready to propose to Sears now that he’s accomplished his ultimate goal of winning Wimbledon. But when the athlete was asked by reporters if he would be popping the question soon, Murray demurred, “I haven’t thought about that yet.”

 

Getting to know him

He does come across as rather drab and rigid doesn’t he? Contrary to the whole Britons and their humour, well this is what he has to say about it,

“Contrary to my image, I do have a sense of humour.”

Although some may find it hard to see that side of him, one surely sees his determination and his zeal, and this is what he has to say about it,

“I 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.”
