Top seed Andy Murray took time out of his practice to meet and hit with David Beckham’s son, Romeo, at Queen’s.
“Right now [tennis] is his sport,” Beckham said of Romeo. “He gave up on football at the ripe old age of 13 and now he plays tennis four or five times a week. He enjoys himself. It’s a great sport and it’s a big privilege from him to be here today.
“When you look at role models, you want them to be passionate about the sport and to play hard all the time. Andy is one of those players and is a great model for many kids around the world.”
Murray is trying to become the first 5-time champion at Queen’s. He opens today against Den Bosch champion Nicolas Mahut.
