Winning my first major title ten years ago was an amazing moment for me; the culmination of everything I'd worked for my whole life. I feel very lucky to have got to where I am today and hope that anyone passionate about tennis gets the opportunity to play and improve.
Letting go of the trophy will be difficult, but there's no better vehicle than the Jaguar XF Sportbrake to take it on this UK tour. I'm pleased that people are going to be able to get up close to the trophy when it visits schools and tennis clubs, and hopefully it might encourage people to pick up a racket this Summer.

The XF Sportbrake joins the award-winning Jaguar XF sedan, now in its tenth year of production. The XF was launched in 2007 and has received almost 200 awards globally. The sedan’s new Sportbrake sibling delivers equally impressive performance, design and technology, with greater practicality and space.
With sports car-derived handling, a practical 31.7-cu. ft. load space behind row 2 and advanced convenience features, the XF Sportbrake offers the best of Jaguar design and technology. It also delivers impressive aerodynamic efficiency of Cd 0.29.
The iconic Jaguar posters of the 1950s promised customers grace, pace and space. The XF Sportbrake re-imagines this offer for 21st-century active families, with stunning looks, sports car performance and a load space fit for active lifestyles.
Innovations include an intuitive gesture-controlled sunblind for the vehicle’s full-length panoramic sunroof, Driver Condition Monitoring designed to detect signs of driver-tiredness1 after an active day and a waterproof Activity Key drivers can wear while playing sports. Customers can also equip their XF Sportbrake with Cabin Air Ionization, which purifies air to provide protection against environmental pollution and promote health and wellbeing2.
The XF Sportbrake is available with the potent 380HP 3.0-liter supercharged V6 gasoline engine, which accelerates from 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds3.
After helping to introduce the XF Sportbrake, Andy Murray warmed up for Wimbledon with a light-hearted celebrity doubles match on a pop-up court. Murray and coach Jamie Delgado faced comedians Rob Brydon and Jimmy Carr in a contest streamed live online, with commentary provided by Tim Henman.
Jaguar is entering its third season as Official Car Partner to The Championships at Wimbledon, which runs from Monday, July 3 to Sunday, July 16. Jaguar will supply 170 vehicles from its award-winning range to the tournament, including the Jaguar XE, XF, XJ and F-PACE.
To help inspire the next generation of tennis talents, Jaguar is taking the famous men’s singles trophy on a nationwide tour of clubs and schools. As Andy Murray counts down to his opportunity to defend his Wimbledon title later this month, the iconic cup will be chauffeured between venues in a Jaguar XF Sportbrake.
The XF is manufactured at the Jaguar Land Rover Castle Bromwich Plant alongside the Jaguar XE, XJ and F-TYPE. The Castle Bromwich Plant is now building four model lines. Employees who build the new model celebrated by watching the live launch coverage.
