Legendary tennis players like Fred Perry and Rene Lacoste turned their love of fashion and made it into a brand.

Now, World No 3 Andy Murray is all set to launch his own line of clothing in the US, possibly following the footsteps of fellow-Wimbledon champion Fred Perry.

Murray's advisers feel there is a gap in the market because the US doesn't have its own male tennis superstar and want him to own a fashion line like the iconic brand of shirts and items bearing the name of his predecessor as Perry.

Sources close to Murray said that showbiz guru Simon Fuller is ready to turn him into a global figure like David Beckham and is convinced the US is the best place to start.
