Two-time Miami Open winner Andy Murray is finally out of the downtown real estate game.

The Scottish serve specialist sold his pad at Miami’s Jade Brickell July 20, according to real estate records.

The price has yet to be published in public records, but listing agent Jon Jacobs told real estate websites it was $2.4 million.

According to records, the world’s current No. 1 tennis player made good money on his investment.

Murray, who turned 30 in May, bought the four-bedroom unit on the 45th floor in 2008 for $1.57 million. At the time, he had just broken into the top 10 and advanced to the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the first time.

But while he thrived on the courts of Key Biscayne, however, Murray was done with Miami living within a few years of his purchase.

He first listed the 3,400-square-foot unit in November 2015 for $3 million. The latest price reduction occurred in May, at $2.5 million.

According to the sales pitch, Murray’s unit at 1331 Brickell Bay Drive featured 360-degree views of the downtown high-rises and Biscayne Bay as well as three terraces.

What else did the D.C. lawyer who bought the place get? A private elevator, floor-to-ceiling windows and almost 900 square feet of outdoor space.

He made upward of $800,000 in the sale, but here’s the bad news: Murray has been struggling on the court with a hip injury.
