Murray was born with a bipartite patella, where the kneecap remains as two separate bones instead of fusing together in early childhood. Murray is seen frequently to hold his knee due to the pain caused by the condition and has pulled out of events because of it, but manages it through a number of different approaches. Murray attributes his abilities to the motivation gained from losing to his older brother Jamie. Murray described this time as “a big sacrifice”. He followed this up with another straight-sets win against Taylor Dent. He also experienced his first Masters event at Cincinnati, where he beat Dent again in straight sets, before losing in three sets to world no. 4 Marat Safin. Murray recovered from being down two sets to one to win his first five-set match, despite being sick on court.
