Andy Murray has a great record when it comes to tournaments played in the United States and Canada throughout his career - with the hard courts used across the continent suited to his game.

The Scot has played 12 finals in the Masters 1000 series (the level below Grand Slams), with eight of those finals being played in North America. Three of those were at the tournment in Miami, two at the tournament in Cincinnati, two in Canada for the Rogers Cup (one each in Montreal and Toronto respectively) and one in Indian Wells. All 12 of those finals have come on hard courts - as well as his two appearances in the final of the US Open.


2005: Murray's record in America seemed to be good even at the very beginning of his career - winning ATP Challenger finals on hard courts in both Aptos and Binghamton in the United States.

2006: Murray wins his first ATP Tour title, beating Lleyton Hewitt in the SAP Open in San Jose, a feat that he would repeat in 2007, beating Ivo Karlovic. In 2006 Murray also finished as runner-up in the Legg Mason Tennis Classic in Washington.

2008: The Scot claims his first Masters level win in Cincinnati, beating Novak Djokovic, he is also beaten in the final of the US Open by Roger Federer, his first Grand Slam final.

2009: Murray wins two Masters level tournaments in Miami and Montreal, beating Djokovic and Juan Martin del Potro respectively as well as finishing as a runner-up to Rafael Nadal in Indian Wells.

2010: A repeat in Canada would follow this year, in Toronto rather than Montreal, against Federer, as well a loss in the final of the Farmers Classic ATP event in Los Angeles against Sam Querrey.

2011: A single ATP tournament win in North America in 2011, a win in Cincinnati at Masters level against Djokovic in the Western & Southern Open.

2012: Murray loses to Djokovic in the final of the Masters tournament in Miami, but beats the same player in the final of the US Open for his maiden Grand Slam win.

2013: Miami again brings another final, but this time a win over David Ferrer - with the big North American leg of the tour still to come.
