Savior from Outside the Margins
British tennis star and Wimbledon champion Andy Murray is the focus of this chapter. Born and raised in Scotland, Murray’s national identity as a British athlete is explored amid the tensions between Scottish identity within the British Empire. Murray’s slow rise to the top of tennis is examined within the pressures of the British sporting public, as well as the challenges of breaking into the sport’s toptier, dominated by Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer.
