Kim sears andy murray

  • Andy Murray has been married to his wife, Kim Sears, since April 2015.
  • While Andy (who is currently competing in the 2019 Rafa Nadal Open in Mallorca) has broken near-countless records, he’s done it with Kim by his side.
  • Andy plays his round of 32 match against Slovakia’s Norbert Gombos on Tuesday, August 27 at 2:30 p.m. EST.

Andy Murray is a two-time Wimbledon champion and two-time gold medalist, which has allowed him to garner quite a fanbase. There’s one fan, however, who is cheering, fist-pumping, and smiling at each and every match. Before 2005, we would have said his mom Judy. But for the past 14 years, it’s been his wife Kim Sears.

Still covering from his hip operation in January, he’s made it back onto the court as a doubles player. Today, he’s set to play with his older brother James in the quarterfinal of the Washington Open in Washington, D.C. While he isn’t competing in the U.S. Open this year, we’re still expecting to see lots of Kim. Here’s everything you need to know about their enduring, oh-so-private love relationship.

Andy and Kim met in August 2005

The two met at a party for the U.S. Open. At the time, an 18-year-old Andy was competing in the tournament and lost in the second round. Kim’s tennis connections come from her father, Nigel Sears, a former pro player who is now a seasoned coach to high-ranking players.

Their relationship became public in February 2006

Though they’ve kept much of their relationship out of the public eye, Andy celebrated with his girlfriend after winning the SAP Open in San Jose, California. They shared a very-public kiss, and then he talked about how grateful he was to have her there.

“First time she came to a tournament with me,” he said. “I’m maybe more relaxed on court. I played really well and hopefully she’ll come to a few more tournaments.”

Andy probably didn’t predict that “a few more” was the biggest understatement of all time. In the 800+ matches he’s competed in, we’d wager that Kim has been in the player’s box for most of them. They moved in together by 2008, and welcomed two border terriers, Rusty and Maggie May (named after their favorite song by Rod Stewart).

“To say we love having them would be an understatement,” Murray wrote in an article for The Players’ Tribune. “Honestly, I can’t imagine our lives without them.” Aww.

They broke up in 2009

Before you get too upset about this one, fear not. They were only apart for a few months, and they made a glorious return when they confirmed their reunion in April 2010. By June, she was there for more tournament watching. In 2009, Kim graduated from the University of Sussex. The self-described “full time procrastinator / part time painter” creates pet portraits.

You can see some of them on her Instagram account, @brushesandpaws, but she hasn’t posted a new image since May 2015 (Come back to the ‘gram, Kim!).

Everyone can remember Andy’s first-ever Wimbledon championship in 2013, which also marked the first time a British man had won the tournament in 77 years.

A proud Kim was in the stands, wearing an iconic mint dress. (BTW: Her style has inspired Instagram accounts and blogs, and we could write an entire article dedicated to her flawless blowouts).

Almost immediately after the historic win, everyone wanted to know one thing: When are you getting married? Andy was adamant that it wouldn’t happen soon, but sure enough …

Andy and Kim were married in April 2015

True love prevails!

After confirming their engagement in November 2014, the longtime couple was married in Andy’s beloved hometown of Dunblane, Scotland. It was a private, intimate ceremony, but Scots lined up to get a glimpse of the couple on their big day.

Kim wore a custom gown made by Jenny Packham, one of Kate Middleton’s favorite designers. Meanwhile, Andy rocked a traditional kilt for the nuptials.

The couple has welcomed two daughters

Sophia was born in February 2016, just after Andy lost the final in the Australian Open. Fighting back tears, he shared a message to his pregnant wife: “To my wife, Kim, who I’m sure is … she’s gonna be watching back home just now. You’ve been a legend the last two weeks. Thank you so much for all of your support, and I’ll be on the next flight home.”

A few months later, the new dad won Wimbledon again in June 2016. And Kim’s reactions were everything. She also co-authored the book, How to Look After Your Human: A Dog’s Guide.

The couple welcomed their second little girl, Edie, in November 2017. To prove just how private they are, Edie’s name wasn’t revealed until 10 months after her birth. Kudos to them and their inner circle for holding that one back!

No photos have been taken of the couple’s kiddos, but Andy shared the most adorable (not to mention, hilarious) conversation he had with his 3-year-old Sophia earlier this year. Andy is more skilled on grass or hard court surfaces, but a particularly great moment happened when Sophia ask him about “orange tennis,” or playing on a clay court. “Just watching some of the Barcelona tournament on the tv with my daughter,” he wrote, before showing this conversation:

“Daddy do you like orange tennis?” “Emmm not really poppet” “Daddy you’re rubbish at orange tennis” Wife … “actually daddies quite good at orange tennis” “No daddy’s rubbish at orange tennis”

“Bit harsh but she’s got a point,” he wrote at the end of the epic Instagram story.

People also suspect a third baby is on the way, as Kim was spotted wearing a maternity top at Wimbledon last month.

All Andy wants is for his daughters to see him play

The pro couldn’t hold back his tears in January 2019, when he announced that he needed to step away from tennis to prioritize his health. After what he thought could be his final match, he told reporters:

“I would like my daughters to come and watch me play a tennis match, hopefully understand what’s happening before I finish. But I’m aware that probably isn’t going to happen now. I’m a bit sad about that.”

About five months later, though, he triumphantly returned to win the men’s doubles tournament at the Queen’s Club Championships in London. Two weeks later, he appeared as the mixed doubles partner for none other than Serena Williams at Wimbledon. So, from what we’ve seen so far, we’re pretty confident that his daughters (along with their mum, obviously), will be there to watch him win again.

Sir Andy Murray and wife Kim Sears expecting third child

Image copyright PA

Sir Andy Murray has revealed his wife Kim is expecting the couple’s third child.

The two-time Wimbledon champion said his wife could give birth as early as next week.

Kim, 31, sparked pregnancy rumours in July after arriving at Wimbledon wearing a maternity top while cheering on her husband in a mixed doubles match with Serena Williams.

Now Sir Andy, 32, has confirmed their third child is expected imminently.

The Dunblane tennis star said he may need to rearrange his playing schedule depending on the timing of the new arrival.

Sir Andy told The Times: “Obviously the baby can come any time from pretty much next week.

“I would adjust my schedule if I couldn’t go to Antwerp.

“My plan is to play Antwerp and then I am done through to the Davis Cup.

“If the baby came early, I would miss Antwerp and then maybe play at the Paris Masters.”

Sir Andy and Kim are already parents to daughters Sophia, three, and Edie, who will turn two next month.

The couple got married in Sir Andy’s home town of Dunblane in 2015.

Sir Andy has just lost a fiery encounter with Italian Fabio Fognini in the second round of the Shanghai Masters.

Three-time Grand Slam winner Sir Andy is currently ranked number 289 in the world after battling back from a career-threatening hip injury.

Andy Murray revealed his marriage to wife Kim Sears was ‘strained’ following his hip injury.

The tennis ace was forced to undergo a ‘life-changing’ operation at the beginning of the year, in an attempt to prolong his career.

And, lifting the lid on his journey back to health, the 32-year-old admitted it was a ‘tough period’ for his family as he became ‘quite selfish’.

Speaking about ‘being down’, he explained: ‘It put a lot of strain on our relationship, just because I was down all the time.

‘She has been brilliant and I would probably be quite selfish, just in terms of thinking about myself and how I’m feeling all the time and not actually realising the impact that has on all the people around me.

‘When everyone was trying to encourage me to keep going and keep trying and keep playing, I was, like, “You don’t know what it’s like. You don’t know what it is that I’m feeling”.’

And the Wimbledon winner revealed the surgery has changed his life, as he can play with his little ones properly.

‘People say it all the time, but for me this was genuinely life-changing for all sorts of reasons, not just to play tennis, but when I’m crawling through a tunnel in soft play with my children, or just getting down on the floor to play and roll around with them,’ he told The Times.

‘I couldn’t do that before. I couldn’t get the same enjoyment out of doing that with my children as I can now.’

Andy previously opened up about adding to his family with Kim, confessing it has been ‘busy’ in the Murray household.

‘It’s been good. It’s just busy. We’ve got three under four now and two dogs so you’ve got to keep an eye out all the time but it’s been good, sleeping fine. Everyone’s healthy,’ he told reporters at his AMC clothing launch.

‘This time has been really good actually. The first time when we went from one to two the first week or so was a bit I don’t know, a bit of jealousy.

‘But this time they’ve been brilliant.’

And he’s hoping that his brood will be able to watch him play tennis when they’re older.

Which is fair enough.

‘Selfishly I’d like for them to watch me play but ultimately it’s not that important,’ he added.

‘Hopefully I can get a few more years out of my body and see what happens after that.’

Andy Murray has made sure he enjoyed some down time with his loved ones, jetting off to the Maldives for a luxury family holiday. The 31-year-old, who has spent most of the year recovering from a hip injury, took to Instagram on Monday to share some pictures from his vacation at the beautiful five-star Jumeirah Vittaveli resort. Accompanied by his brother Jamie Murray, the sports star wrote: “Had to post a picture with my ice cream lilo as it took me about four hours to blow the bloody thing up. Great holiday @jumeirahvittaveli with the family.. Sad to be coming home.”

One photo saw Andy show off his golf skills in front of the ocean – this type of golf ball is reportedly the only one in the world which dissolves into fish food. Another snap saw the dad-of-two pose next to an inflatable ice cream mattress on the beach, while one picture showed the two famous brothers practise some tennis against a stunning background of the sun-set. The pair were no doubt joined by their respective families.

It’s been a trying few months in the Murray household after Andy’s hip surgery in January, which forced him to be out of action since last year’s Wimbledon. The evening before Wimbledon 2018 kicked off, the former world number one revealed he had withdrawn from the tournament, citing it was “too soon” to play five-set matches. Last year, Andy and his wife Kim Sears welcomed their second child, a baby girl called Edie. The couple have been married since April 2015, and are also parents to daughter Sophia Olivia, who was born in February 2016.

Earlier this year, Andy revealed that the thought of his children had kept him going. “I have spoken to my wife a bit about it,” the tennis ace said. “One of the things that I would like to do is play until my eldest daughter is able to watch me and have a small understanding of what it is I’ve done for my living.” He added: “That’s one of the things that’s motivated me to keep playing. That would be cool if she can come along and watch me hit some balls or practice, just to see what it is I do.”

Tennis pro Andy Murray and his wife Kim Sears are now the proud parents of a baby boy, after the couple welcomed the newest addition to their family last week.

Andy’s mum, Judy, confirmed the news on BBC Scotland’s Mornings with Kaye Adams programme today saying: ‘It’s lovely news, lovely to have a little boy…I’ll leave it to Andy and Kim to fill in all the details.’

Andy only confirmed that he and Kim were expecting another child very recently, although there were rumours that Kim was pregnant when she supported Andy at Wimbledon back in July.

The couple, who first met in August 2005 and have been together for 14 years, are particularly private when it comes to their children and family life, rarely choosing to comment on rumors or speculation about their kids.

Kim was heavily pregnant and so could not fly out to support her husband in the tournament and the Scottish sporting star said in an emotional thank you speech after the match against Novak Djokovic: ‘To my wife Kim, who I am sure is going to be watching back home, you have been a legend the last two weeks and I will be on the next flight home.’

ANDY MURRAY’S SON TEDDY

The third of Andy Murray’s children, Teddy Barron Murray was born last month. Andy revealed the name of his baby boy while announcing the launch of his new clothing brand AMC in November.

Andy’s wife Kim liked the name Teddy. The middle name, Barron, is a family connection. Murray revealed that he didn’t actually love the name but his dad’s middle name was Barron, so he decided to keep it.

The arrival of Murray’s third child was scheduled to avoid a repeat of the stress that the couple had to face during the birth of their first child in 2016.

ANDY MURRAY ON FATHERHOOD

When asked about the possibility of all three of his children watching him play, Murray said- “I don’t know when I’ll stop. Now as well, after the past couple of years, it would be nice if Teddy did (see me play), but that isn’t the priority for me. Selfishly, I’d like for them to watch me, but ultimately it’s not that important. Hopefully, I can get a few more years out of my body and see what happens after that.”

ANDY MURRAY’S FUTURE

Injuries and lacklustre performances have rocked Andy Murray’s career in the recent past. However, the Britisher insists that he still has some tennis left in him and has got the capability to lift another grand slam trophy.

The 2020 season will be crucial for Murray as he looks to prove his critics wrong.

How Did Andy Murray & Kim Sears Meet? The Tennis Star’s Life Is At The Helm Of Amazon Prime’s Latest Doc

British tennis champ Andy Murray has endured many ups and downs over the course of his hugely-successful career, some of which are set to be explored in Amazon Prime’s latest documentary Andy Murray: Resurfacing. However, all sporting achievements aside, his long-term relationship with wife Kim Sears is no doubt a personal highlight for the tennis pro. But how did Andy Murray and Kim Sears meet?

According to Hello!, the couple first met whilst attending a party for the U.S. Open back in 2005, where Sears had been travelling with her father Nigel — who was the head of the women’s lawn tennis association in England. Despite the pair’s romantic relationship developing pretty quickly, Sears and Murray managed to initially keep things low-key. However, following the Wimbledon champ’s first major tournament win in San Jose, California, the couple went on to become the sweethearts of the tennis world. As the BBC reports, Murray and Sears eventually tied the knot on April 11, 2015, during a small ceremony in his hometown of Dunblane, Scotland, and have since gone on to have three children together.

As mentioned previously, a behind-the-scenes look at the sportsman’s life is about to debut on Amazon Prime, and Andy Murray: Resurfacing will look into the British former world number one’s professional and personal journey over the past two years. The documentary, which is available to stream on the platform as of Friday, November 29, will delve into some of the most poignant moments of Murray’s life, including the harrowing 1996 massacre in his hometown of Dunblane, his personal relationships with those closest to him, an infamous on-court display of emotion, and the intense medical issues he faced in recent years. As iNews reports, Murray previously explained how he hopes the film will go on to inspire viewers, and revealed his aims to provide fans some “insight” into what he was going through over the past couple of years, because at certain times he wasn’t “able to perform on court.”

I don’t know about you, but I’m very much looking forward to what promises to be an insightful look into the life of Britain’s biggest tennis star, and you can stream Andy Murray: Resurfacing on Friday, November 29 on Amazon Prime.

When did Kim Sears and Andy Murray meet?

The two met each other for the first time in 2005 when she was just 17 – Murray 18, at the US Open.

Kim’s father Nigel Sears introduced the pair to each other, as he was head of the Women’s Tennis Association at the time.

They were revealed to be a couple when Murray kissed Kim after he won his first tournament in 2006.

Andy and Kim briefly split up that year, before they reconciled, and they’ve been inseparable ever since.

The pair married on April 11, 2015 at Dunblane Cathedral.

They are the proud parents of 17 month old Sophia, who will be the older sister to their new baby.

When did Kim Sears and Andy Murray’s have their second baby?

On November 8, 2016 it was revealed that the couple had welcomed baby number two into the world.

They have a new baby girl.

The happy news that the tennis ace and his wife Kim had their second child emerged less than 24 hours after the athlete played a charity tennis event in Glasgow.

Andy played against Roger Federer in the charity match at the SSE Hydro, having donned a ginger wig for the game.

Kim and Andy revealed that they were expecting a second child back in July.

What will Kim Sears and Andy Murray call their baby?

Bookies are offering odds of 6/1 that the baby will be named either Freya for a girl or William for a boy.

Before the pair named Sophia last year, there was speculation that they may pick the monikers Freya, Alexandra and Elizabeth.

Following the birth of Murray’s first child, bookies offered odds of 500/1 on Andy Murray’s daughter Sophia ending up a Wimbledon winner like her dad. Andy Murray wears Scottish hat and red wig during charity tennis match against Roger Federer in Scotland

ANDY MURRAY has announced he will retire from tennis this year.

The Scot aims to call it a day after Wimbledon but admits the pain could force him to quit after the Australian Open.

What is Andy Murray’s net worth?

Andy’s total net worth is estimated to be in the region of £48-£66million.

In 2016 alone he won 78 matches, including nine titles and reached the final of three Grand Slam tournaments, earning him prize money numbering £10.8 million.

When he won Wimbledon for the first time in 2013, he was the first British player to do so since Fred Perry back in 1936.

Murray likes to invest his money in property and currently lives in a mansion in Oxshott, Surrey, which cost over £5m when he bought it in 2009.

He made a tidy profit from his luxury Miami flat which he sold in 2016 after deciding to spend more time in the UK following the birth of his daughter in February 2016 – he is estimated to have netted a profit of £1million.

If you fancy a bit of the Murray luxury yourself you can book a room at his 19th century luxury boutique hotel, where he and Kim Sears held their wedding reception in 2015.

Just outside his hometown of Dunblane, he bought Cromlix House in 2013, and the cheapest double room will set you back £220 a night.

When is Andy Murray planning to retire?

Speaking in a press conference before the 2019 Australian Open, Murray opened up about his retirement plans.
The 31-year-old, who is a two-time Wimbledon champion, got emotional when speaking, admitting he was “in pain daily.”

He said: “I’m not feeling good.

“Obviously I’ve been struggling for a long time. I have been in a lot of pain for probably about 20 months now.

“I have pretty much done everything that I could to try and get my hip feeling better. It hasn’t helped loads.

“I’m in a better place than I was six months ago, but still in a lot of pain. Yeah, it has been tough.”

“In the middle to the end of December in my training block, I spoke to my team, and I told them ‘I cannot keep doing this’.

View this post on Instagram

Best way to feel better after a tough day is a big cuddle from your mum 🙂 Genuinely been very touched by all of the messages and support from everybody today… It means a lot and has made me feel much more positive than when I woke this morning💪Thank you so much. ❤️

A post shared by Andy Murray (@andymurray) on Jan 11, 2019 at 5:36am PST

“I needed to have an end point because I was sort of playing with no idea when the pain was going to stop. I felt like making that decision. I said to my team, ‘look, I think I can get through this until Wimbledon.’

“But could this be my last tournament? There’s a chance of that, for sure. There’s a chance of that, for sure.”

He said: “I’m not sure I am able to play through the pain for another four or five months.

“I have an option to have another operation, which is a little bit more severe than what I have had before. Having my hip resurface, which will allow me to have a better quality of life, be out of pain.

“That is something I’m seriously considering right now. Some athletes have had that and gone back to competing.

“But there are obviously no guarantees with that, and it is not something…the reason for having an operation is not to return to professional sport, it’s just for a better quality of life.”

What sponsorship deals does Andy Murray have?

The prize money that Andy wins over the course of a year are only part of the Scot’s earnings though.

His sponsorship deals are where he can really top up his bank account and his off court earning potential has soared this year.

He has contracts with Standard Life, Head and Rado as well as a £15m four year deal with sports wear maker Under Armour.

At the beginning of 2016 he signed a partnership with car manufacturer Jaguar.

Andy is the sole shareholder of his company, 77 Management which looks after his business empire.

However the savvy sportsman is selective about the companies he will do deals with. He won’t take on a sponsorship deal if it compromises his principles or impacts on his training schedule regardless of how much money it will earn him.

Who is Andy Murray married to and how many children does he have?

Andy Murray married his long-term partner, Kim Sears in April 2015 at Dunblane Cathedral.

Kim gave birth to their first child, Sophia, in Feburary 2016, and on the first day of Wimbledon 2017, the happy couple announced that they were expecting their second child.

On November 8, 2017, the pair announced they had welcomed a second baby girl to their family.

The news emerged shortly after the athlete played a charity tennis match against Roger Federer in Glasgow.

It marked the first time that Murray has played in public after he suffered a hip injury at Wimbledon.
