Murray, Muguruza Honoured as 2015 Ambassadors of the Year
Melbourne, 16 January 2016 – Andy Murray and Garbine Muguruza have won the International Tennis Writers Association’s top awards. The 28-year-old Scot and the 22-year-old Spaniard were voted ITWA’s Ambassadors of the Year for 2015. It is the second time Murray has won the award and the first time it has gone to Muguruza.
ITWA represents more than 120 of the world’s leading tennis journalists. Its awards recognise a combination of achievements on the court, conduct that shows tennis in the best possible light and co-operation with the media.
Both Murray and Muguruza had memorable years. Murray, who also won the award in 2012, had the most consistent year of his career, finishing at No 2 in the world rankings for the first time. He also played the key role in Britain’s Davis Cup triumph, winning all eight of his singles rubbers during the year and three doubles rubbers alongside his brother Jamie. READ MORE
