According to reports out of Great Britain, Andy Murray and longtime girlfriend Kim Sears are now engaged to be married.
No date or venue has been set as of yet, but the 27-year-old Murray will marry Sears. The two have been dating since a 2005 meeting at the US Open. Now 26, Sears is the daughter of tennis coach Nigel Sears.
Murray also announced that he has parted with coaches Dani Vallverdu and Jez Green. Andy has worked with Jez for seven years, and Dani for five years. Murray will remain with Amelie Mauresmo.
“We sat down at the end of the season and decided that a change would be best for all of us,” Murray said in a statement. “My off season training and Australian Open preparations have already begun and I am very excited for the new year. I thank Jez and Dani for all their hard work over the years and wish them the best for the future.”
Via a tweet, Murray was headed off to the Philippines for some vacation and some exhibition tennis with the IPTL.
Off to the Philippines for the first time today, should be a fun trip… Anyone got some suggestions for first time tourists in Manila?

After a lackluster start to 2014, Murray finished strong winning three titles down the stretch to end at a ranking of No. 6.
Murray’s engagement leaves only Rafael Nadal as the only “Big Four” member left to get hitched. Will it happen for Nadal in the coming year?
