Edinburgh: Wimbledon Champion Andy Murray`s off-court income has doubled to more than 10 million pounds in the last year, after he made considerable money through a string of lucrative merchandising and sponsorship deals.
According to The Scotsman, the 26-year-old can console himself with an impressive set of results after being knocked out of the US Open in the quarter finals by StaniSlas Wawrinka.
Latest accounts for his company show it generated 10,013,196 pounds, up from 5.8 million pounds the previous year, and made a profit of 6,371,811 pounds for 2012, the report said.
The accounts for 2012 reveal that the company had 7,622,924 pounds in the bank and was owed 2,390,272 pounds by debtors, the report added.
The firm`s income is mainly made up of merchandising payments and appearance fees and it does not include the 19 million pounds, which he has earned in prize money during his career, the report further said.
Murray has endorsement deals in place with tennis retailer Head, sportswear firm Adidas, watchmaker Rado Switzerland and the Royal Bank of Scotland, according to the report.
