Andy Murray revealed that if he had to he will leave the Australian Open mid-tournament to return home for the birth of his first child. Wife Kim Sears is expecting the baby in early February, but any hint the baby is coming sooner and Murray will be back home.
“I’d go home. For sure, yes,” Murray told the Daily Mail. “It’s obviously important. I want to make sure at the beginning I am there as much as I can be to try and help out, just be there for whatever is really required of me.”
The baby’s impending arrival has also impacted Murray’s training this month. He’s usually in Miami, his second base, but now to be closer to Kim he’s in Dubai.
“I was either going to go to Dubai or Miami but because obviously Kim is quite heavily pregnant it’s a lot easier to get back from here. All the flights leave in the evening from Miami, whereas here you can fly at all times in the day.”
With Murray already planning having tennis taking a backseat to the baby, how much will Murray play/practice once he becomes a father?
