A look at Judy Murray’s career

Murray is a respected coach who led Great Britain’s Fed Cup team from 2011 to 2016. She has coached athletes at all levels, mostly through the LTA, the governing organisation of British tennis. She is a trustee of the Judy Murray Foundation, a charitable organisation recognised by Scottish law whose mission is to increase tennis opportunities for all Scots.

She gave up on her dreams of a professional playing career despite winning 64 titles in Scotland as a junior and senior in the 1970s due to feeling homesick and being robbed in Barcelona.

She made the decision to enrol at the University of Edinburgh to study French and German, but ultimately chose to focus on business studies instead of German. She earned her degree from the University of Edinburgh in 1981, and she competed for Great Britain at the World Student Games.

She started coaching and was the first to mentor both of her kids before transferring the responsibility as their professional careers took off. She has coached other players at the regional and national levels, aside from her own son, through the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), the British tennis regulatory body.

In recognition of his contributions to tennis, women in sports, and charitable work, Murray was named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2017 Birthday Honours.
