WATCH: SPORTbible Meets: Andy Murray

Andy Murray often looks like he's playing with superpowers and it's not everyday you get to sit down with British tennis' own Superman but SPORTbible got to talk to the world's best player.

It's not that long ago that it would have seemed impossible to see a British tennis player going into Wimbledon as world number one but Andy Murray has spent some time beating the impossible.

Sportbible met Andy in London's Queen's Club where he was speaking at the launch of his new superhero inspired Under Armour kit.

When Murray came to prominence it was at the end of Tim Henman's career and it was just the boost our summer's needed as the chances to get excited up until the semi-finals disappeared.

But with the Scot came to our rescue giving us hope of further summers enjoyed until the Thursday of our favourite annual summer sporting event.

Amazingly Murray went even further getting to Grand Slam finals before rocking up in the final at SW19 against Roger Federer in 2012 where he lost.

That moment was the turning point for his career though and by the end of the year he was Olympic and US Open champion.

Since become world number one at the end of last season things haven't gone perfectly for Murray.

He won the ATP World Tour Finals for the the first time but this year hasn't started too well with just one tournament win at the Dubai Tennis Championship.

A fourth round loss in the Australian Open and a poor start to the clay season didn't bode well for him but his form turned around in time.

He reached the semi-final of the French Open where he only lost in a five set thriller to Stan Wawrinka after running out of steam.

Now he heads to Queens and Wimbledon where he is defending champion at both.

The green grass of home is far from his kryptonite.
