MailOnline, July 29, 2016: ¤¤ Game, set, sail! Tennis champ Andy Murray soaks up the sun in Mallorca with wife Kim Sears on board Rafael Nadal’s yacht.
He’s enjoying a much deserved break away after taking Wimbledon by storm.
Tennis champ Andy Murray, 29, and wife Kim Sears, 28, looked sun-kissed as they arrived at Manacor Port in Mallorca on Friday.
Enjoying some R&R, the sports star and his long-term love were in their element after a day of sailing on fellow tennis player Rafael Nadal’s yacht…¤¤
The Guardian, January 11, 2017: ¤¤ Andy Murray makes commitment to play at Queen’s Club for rest of career.
In 2017 the tournament is expanding its Centre Court capacity by 30%.
Stephen Farrow, the Aegon Championships tournament director, said: “To know that Andy will play at the Queen’s Club for the rest of his career and that the BBC will cover it every step of the way is a huge boost in what is an exciting and important year for the Aegon Championships with our stadium capacity increasing by 30%.” ¤¤
So? Why does he get a court named after him when he trained there for 18 months only and long time ago? Did he go back there all these years to visit the staff, or trained there before each clay season, or whatever?
Much as I like, and am a fan of Sir Andy Murray, this accolade is premature to say the least Djokovic must be foaming at the mouth with irritation. it will be interesting too to hear what Federer has to say on the matter. But at the end of the day it’s no big deal. It’s only a training academy not a major venue.
Why should Nole or Fed mind? I am sure both of them will also have lots of honors heaped on them. The only thing is that the academy should have waited till Muzz retired just as Barcelona should have waited till Rafa retired.
“This is not the first time a street has been named in his honour. In 2012, the city of Halle, in Germany, unveiled “Roger-Federer-Allee” in recognition of Federer’s success on the grass at the Gerry Weber Open” .
