Bio The first top-of-the-line left-handed player in tournament tennis, Murray ruled the American game impressively for two years. In 1917, he won the championship of his country (then called the National “Patriotic” Championships) for the first time. But when he defeated a promising player named Bill Tilden in the finals of the U.S. Nationals in 1918, he demonstrated indisputably that he was authentic. Boosted by a big serve, the 6’2” Murray was the best player in his nation in 1918.

He graduated from Stanford in 1913 with a degree in chemistry and received a chemical engineering masters degree the following year. During the WWI, he was a chemist whose duties in producing explosives were so important that he had to remain a civilian.
Murray played for the varsity team and became the 1913 Pacific Coast intercollegiate champion.

In the USLTA national rankings, he was the U.S. No. 1 in 1918, and was ranked fourth in 1914, 1916 and 1919.
