The history of MurraysWorld.com
On 25th June 2005, university student Mark Sanger watched spellbound as an unknown British teenager took former Wimbledon finalist David Nalbandian to five sets on the All England Club's hallowed Centre Court. That teenager was Andy Murray. With Tim Henman winding down his career, Mark, like many Brits, had thought he might have to wait a generation for another world-class home player. He became an instant fan.
After the match, Mark googled 'Andy Murray', but was surprised to discover no dedicated website for the young Scot. With some experience of web development, Mark made it his mission to create a site where other fans could gather and exchange opinion on Murray.
Days after its creation on 4th July 2005, MurraysWorld.com had already begun to receive traffic from around the world. Within weeks, the website had turned into the friendly community it is now – one renowned for its non-fanboy-like objectiveness about everything Andy Murray.
In November 2005, Murray's then management company, Octagon, invited Mark to a meeting. Octagon was keen to turn MurraysWorld into Andy's official website and wanted Mark at the helm. However, shortly after these talks, the Scot switched management company to ACE Group, with no agreement being reached.
MurraysWorld prides itself on its journalistic principles and dedication to Andy Murray's fans. At all times, the site aims to be honest about Murray's performances and career, and to be generally positive and constructive. In everything the site does, its primary focus on working hard for Murray's supporters shines through.
