Murray’s girlfriend will have filled the swear jar after this rant

Murray’s girlfriend will have filled the swear jar after this rant

It looked like Andy Murray’s girlfriend Kim Sears turned the air blue around her in Melbourne today while her boyfriend played in the Australian Open.

Andy Murray was victorious over Tomas Berdych in the semi-final match, but it was a tetchy affair and the bad feeling seemed to extend out to the spectators.

Berdych is now coached by Murray’s former coach Dani Vallverdu, and the pre-match commentary focused on the first meeting of the two since the Scot opted for a new coach.

Social media lit up when Sears was seen apparently swearing like a trooper during the game.

Murray was unbothered by the furore when asked about it in the post-match interview.

“When there’s a lot of tension surrounding something then it’s completely normal that, yeah, the whole first set everyone was tight,” he said.

“Yeah, in the heat of the moment you can say stuff that you regret. That’s it.”
