Andy Murray enlisted in Top 49 most influential men of 2012 – Tennis News
British hero, Andy Murray, is among the AskMen’s Top 49 most influential men of 2012. He is enlisted among top stars including James Bond, Usain Bolt and Bill Clinton.
The Olympic gold medallist, Murray stands at number 33 on the list which is chosen by public voting. The voting process, which underwent for whole month, asked readers to determine which men had the biggest impact this year.
AskMen explained the inclusion by stating:

The high flying Scot carried his rhythm at Flushing Meadows. He maintained consistency in his games in it and after battling past second seeded Djokovic, Murray captured his maiden Grand Slam title. He also ended 76 years British Grand Slam title drought
