Andy Murray Talks About Being A Married Man, “Not Much Will Change” He Says

Andy Murray met the media in Munich yesterday for the first time since getting married to Kim Sears 10 days ago in Scotland.

Murray, though, said being married won’t change him much.

“I don’t imagine much will change,” Murray said. However there is an issue with the wedding right, he told the Guardian. “I might wear it on a necklace, but the necklace I got broke the first day I got it,” he said to the paper. “I was on a physio bed and it got caught, just snapped off. I can’t play with it [on his finger], because it gives me blisters.”

Murray has been practicing in Spain, preparing for his clay debut this week.

“I had my wedding and then when I was in Barcelona for 10 days, it went really well,” Murray said. “I had some good practice. There was a lot of good guys for me there to play with. In terms of physically, I feel very good, which hadn’t really been the case the last couple of years when I came onto the clay. I was having a lot of problems with my back.”

But he’s never won a clay title.

“I’d like to win a clay-court event,” he said. “A lot of the times when I have played well on clay, I’ve lost to Rafa and to Novak, so I’m hoping I can have a good run here.”

Murray also talked about new coach Jonas Bjorkman, and his role during Amelie Mauresmo’s pregnancy.

“It’s obviously great news for her, she’s extremely happy,” Murray told the Guardian. “But after Wimbledon, providing everything’s good, I’m going to spend the whole of the hard-court stretch through to the end of the US Open with Jonas. Then I’ll see what happens with Amélie because I don’t know, and I don’t think she knows, what her priorities are going to be and how she wants to deal with things. So we’ll just see for a few months.”

Murray and Bjorkman were able to spend time training last week, and he will be on duty in Munich.

“As a coach I don’t know him that well because we only spent a few days in Barcelona last week, but he’s a very calm guy,” said Murray. “He has a very good way about him. He has a good work ethic. His mentality on the court is very good. He obviously has a lot of experience in singles and doubles, which is good. We’ll see this week how it goes, but I get on well with him.”

Margot Says:

Fingers crossed dear Murphy. Enough coaching changes already.

Yolita Says:

Is it me or is Andy looking more and more handsome every day?

Good luck on the clay, Andy.

jane Says:

i think he has a great shot in munich to take his first clay title!

Anna Says:

Yolita – you’ve got to be kidding right!!!???? I’m afraid you need glasses my dear! With all due respect- there is NO HANDSOME in Andy!!!! Sorry – but that’s it.

chris ford1 Says:

I think Yolita has a point. People’s looks change over time. Andy was a skinny carrot top as teen, early 20s. Then he put on some muscle and his hair darkened, but his angular features and fangs made him look like he lived under a Scottish bridge and came out to demand tolls or answer to a riddle. Now his features are softening a bit and he is looking handsome.
Fed’s nose is getting bigger.
Novak, though with male model looks and bod – seems to have more chin. At least he seems likely to have a full head of black hair at 70 except for gray around the temples which he can point to and say, “Nadal”.
Rafa will always be handsome, but with a lot less hair as years go by. Which he can point to tanned skull and say “Djokovic” …”And maybe doctors treatments, no”?

As for Andy and marriage not changing him…all I can say is “Waaaaah!”.
And if his 1st little tyke comes along in the next few years, and is an incessant wailer and whiner and b*tcher driving Andy nuts….what better proof baby takes after Dad?

Yolita Says:

I’m not kidding at all. I thnk he has improved with age a great deal. :)
His smile is nice, too.
I truly don’t understand why he hasn’t done better on clay, it suits his game.
