The Scot enjoyed a sparkling 2009. Having bagged six titles - the most of any player during 2009 - and become the first Brit to reach number two in the world, it was his best yet.
But it was Murray's grit and determination under the lights of the new centre court roof to defeat an inspired Swiss opponent in the fourth round of Wimbledon - sadly not Roger Federer on this occasion - that sticks in the memory.
