Andy Murray ‘snaps back to reality’ when his son tells him to ‘stay in the car’ during back to school

Tennis champion Andy Murray has “returned to reality” as he returns to the UK following his exit from the Australian Open on Saturday.

The three-time Grand Slam winner, 35, revealed on Twitter that his six-year-old son told him to “stay in the car” during the drive back to school.

On Wednesday, Andy wrote: ‘We got to school this morning. My 6 year old “Dad, don’t give me any more kisses or hugs when you drop me…just stay in the car”. game hard Back to reality!’

Back to normal: Tennis champion Andy Murray has been “back to reality” again as he returns to the UK after his exit from the Australian Open on Saturday.

Murray and Kim, who began dating in 2005, have been married for almost six years following their Dunblane wedding in April 2015.

The couple share Sophia, six, Edie, four, Teddie, two, and a third daughter, one.

The Scottish tennis star was knocked out of the Australian Open last week by Roberto Bautista.

Even as the father of four children, with more accumulated wealth than he could possibly spend, he remains hell-bent on living the itinerant life he chose, to squeeze every last drop out of his career.

Murray played in and prepared for nineteen tournaments last season that were away from his London base. At the end of all that, he went to Florida for three weeks to work with Ivan Lendl.

Immediately after Christmas he left for Australia, from where he now returns, battered and tired.

However, the journey never stops and the loitering never begins. In February he will play indoors in Rotterdam and then head to Dubai, before flying to Indian Wells in California and then on to Miami.

Murray’s immediate priority is to move his rankings up to a position where he is seeded for tournaments and thus avoid having to face the likes of Matteo Berrettini in the first round, as he did in this tournament.

The fact is that his ranking has only marginally improved from the mammoth efforts of the week, rising to 62.

“Obviously, in recent years, some of the Slam draws have been very difficult,” he said before leaving. He was pretty clear that it was something he wanted to do last year to try and get to the seed spots. It didn’t quite happen.

“If I was playing at this level last year, I probably wouldn’t be ranked 50 or 60 in the world.”

The next few months represent an opportunity because you have relatively few points to defend from the corresponding period of 2022, on the twelve-month rolling system.

It’s also all too easy to imagine Murray one day becoming Great Britain’s Captain in Davis Cup or other team competitions.

Given that he was the last single GB player standing, for the first time since 2017, it still seems premature for that.

The current incumbent, Leon Smith, sat courtside for all fourteen hours of Murray’s three games and was stunned by his testimony.
