Retiring British tennis champion Andy Murray is bringing $165 million into retirement with him, as the two-time Wimbledon champion has decided to hang up his racket in 2019.
For Murray, cash will be abundant in retirement, even when he's doing so before his 33rd birthday.
He officially wound up his Wimbledon career in July, losing a mixed doubles quarterfinal match (he was paired with fellow champion Serena Williams, with 26 combined career grand slams between them). In fact, Murray officially retired after his last Wimbledon match this year.
As tennis fans bid adieu to one of the best players in his era, it's worth taking a look at Andy Murray's total net worth - how he made it and how he might plan to spend it - as he pulls down the curtain on an illustrious career on the court.
Andy Murray's Salary
Of his $165 million, Murray has earned $61 million on the court and the rest from a combination of endorsement earnings and savvy investments.
His yearly salary fluctuates, but 2016 may have been Murray's best year on the court, winning nine professional tennis titles and earning $2.5 million alone with his second Wimbledon title.
Overall, Murray earned $16.3 million in 2016, and he hasn't come close to matching that figure ever since. A big part of the problem is an ailing hip, which has sidelined Murray on a regular basis, and dropped him down to No. 222 in global tennis rankings in 2019.
2016 was also a big revenue producer on the endorsement front for Murray. He earned $18.8 million in endorsements and appearances that year, placing him 40th in the Forbes list of wealthiest athletes.
Andy Murray's Career
Born May 15, 1987 in Glasgow, Scotland, Andy Murray grew up to be one of the most prolific players in his generation, winning 45 career tennis championships, and three Grand Slam championships - the 2013 and 2016 Wimbledon titles and the 2012 U.S. Open title.
Murray also added two Olympic gold medals in singles - wins he often says ranks high on his list of career achievements.
Athletic talent runs in Murray's family. His grandfather played professional soccer and his brother Jamie also was a professional tennis player. His interest in tennis came early, as he started playing the game at the age of 3, and played his first competitive match at age 5.
By the time Andy Murray was 8 years old he was competing in regional tennis tournaments with players two or three times his age. By age 15, Murray had moved to Barcelona, Spain, where he learned the game from Pato Alvarez at the local Sanchez-Casal Academy.
At age 17, Murray was winning global tournaments, winning the Junior U.S. Open in 2004 and was tapped to suit up for the prestigious Davis Cup against Australia, although he never wound up competing that year. Ranked No. 6 in the world as a junior player, Murray was ready to move up to the professional ranks.
After his rapid rise in the ranks as one of Europe's finest teenage tennis players, Murray burst on to the professional men's tennis scene in 2005, at a professional ATP tour event in Barcelona.
From there, Murray worked his way up the men's tennis rankings, reaching his very first Grand Slam semi-final and final at the 2008 U.S. Open, where he lost to Roger Federer.
Murray repeated that sequence in 2010 at another Grand Slam event, the 2010 Australian Open, where again fell to Federer. That scenario occurred yet again at the Australian Open in 2011, this time with Murray losing to another powerful peer, Novak Djokovic. Murray lost his fourth Grand Slam final to Federer, this time in 2012 at Wimbledon, where he became England's first championship finalist since 1938.
Fortune changed for Murray in 2012, where he once again reached a majors final - the U.S. Open - and this time emerged victorious over Djokovic, which made Murray the first U.K. men's tennis professional to win a Grand Slam event since 1936.
Earlier that summer, Murray won the men's singles gold medal at the Summer Olympics in London (beating Federer in three sets), a feat he repeated in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro.
Overall, Andy Murray has proven himself to be a resilient, resourceful and relentless force on the global tennis stage during his career. He has the 45 ATP wins, with 22 additional final appearances during his 14-year run, and 11 Grand Slam finals.
He also has an impressive 12 wins against world No. 1-ranked players, most notably against Federer and Djokovic.
Andy Murray's Endorsements
He inked a pact with Under Armour worth $18.6 million a few years ago, and also earned millions with a deal with sneaker giant Adidas (ADDYY) . In 2016, he added to endorsement largesse with a $2 million deal with car maker Jaguar.
One of his biggest endorsement earnings years was 2017, when Murray earned $14 million as a product pitchman. He didn't fare too poorly in 2018, either, earning $11.5 million in a year where he was often sidelined by injury.
It's not all about endorsements with Andy Murray.
He has also earned millions via his sports management firm, 77 Management (so named because Murray was the first man to win Wimbledon in 77 years.)
Besides handling Murray's appearances, endorsements, and image, 77 Management was the financial vehicle Murray used to purchase Cromlix House Hotel in Perthshire, Scotland on 50 acres of lush Scottish woodlands - it's one of the poshest hotels in the entire U.K., according to travel sites.
Murray has also invested in a company called Deuce, a mobile app that aids tennis players in finding nearby courts to play on, as well as making investments in a foreign currency exchange firm and an employee wellness company.
Andy Murray's House
Andy Murray lives in a large plush home in Oxschott, Surrey, England. The home was valued at $5 million when he purchased it in 2009 and is likely worth around $8 million in 2019.
Murray also made a tidy profit from a home he owned and sold in Miami in 2016. He reportedly made $1 million on the deal, and wasted no time heading back to the U.K., to his young daughters and his wife, Kim, who he married in 2015 at the hotel he purchased in Dunblane back in 2013.
Murray is judicious with his spending but extremely generous to the various charities he supports, including Comic Relief, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Sport Relief, and UNICEF.
His charitable work is legendary in the UK. For example, in 2017 Murray raised almost $1 million in a weekend-long tennis outing in Glasgow, with all of the proceeds going to Murray's favorite charitable causes.
Beyond his charitable efforts, Murray is all about family life, choosing to spend his free time with wife and two daughters on their Surrey estate.
In retirement, Murray can still count on banking big endorsement money, just like other high profile athletes like Michael Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal and Peyton Manning.
His link to the tennis world may live on, as Murray is rumored to be attaching himself to a tennis academy in the U.K., thus bringing the game to the masses, where maybe a young Andy Murray will emerge to make his or her country proud - just like Murray did.
