Iconic sports fashion label Fred Perry unveiled the new tennis kit to be worn by Andy Murray at the 2009 Wimbledon Championships on Monday.

In celebration of the centenary year of Perry’s birth, Murray has worked closely with Fred Perry designers to develop a blend of performance and heritage product referencing classic Fred Perry kit from the 1950s and 1960s. The kit features a full range of clothing from a white collared performance shirt and tailored shorts to an ivory cotton cable v-neck sweater, white cotton tennis bomber jacket and white kit bag.

Every item in the kit features Andy Murray’s initials stitched underneath the Fred Perry laurel, inspired by the bespoke shirts that Perry designed for clients and friends such as John F Kennedy and Billie Jean King.

The Fred Perry brand has supplied clothing to Andy Murray since 2004 and has been working with Murray over the past 12 months to develop today’s outfit.

World No. 3 Murray goes into the Wimbledon Championships as the highest ranked British tennis player since Perry.

Andy Murray said: “I am proud to be associated with the Fred Perry brand and to be wearing an outfit inspired one of my sporting heroes. The kit looks and feels great - I’ve already tested it out on the courts and look forward to wearing it at Wimbledon next week. I hope one day to follow in Fred Perry’s footsteps and repeat his success at Wimbledon.” 

John Flynn, Managing Director at Fred Perry said: “We have worked with Andy for five years now and he is a fantastic ambassador both on and off the tennis court. This is a significant year for the brand as we celebrate 100 years since the birth of Fred Perry and Andy wearing this kit at Wimbledon is a fitting tribute. His exclusively designed outfit uses quality performance fabrics to create a tailored look – I’m sure Fred Perry would be proud!”

The Fred Perry 100 year Andy Murray tennis outfit includes:

•         White performance Fred Perry shirt with green laurel and tipping
•         White performance tailored cotton shorts
•         Ivory knitted cotton cable v-neck sweater
•         Ivory knitted cotton cable slip-over
•         White cotton tennis bomber
•         White leather tennis kit bag

This outfit will be worn exclusively by Andy and his brother Jamie at Wimbledon.
