Andy Murray withdraws from Dubai Open after arrival of fourth child


Matt Gentry, publicist for the two-time Wimbledon winner, told CNN on Friday that reports that Murray’s wife Kim Sears had given birth and that Murray had withdrawn from the Dubai tournament as a result was true, but he declined to comment further.

Earlier on Friday, 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer said he was retiring from the same tournament in order to focus on his training.

Murray and Sears, her childhood sweetheart, tied the knot in April 2015.

They already have two daughters, Sophia, 5, and Edie, 3, and a 1-year-old son, Teddy. It is not yet known whether the new arrival is a boy or a girl.

Last year, the Scottish star opened up about fatherhood in an interview with the British Times newspaper.

“He just wants to throw and chase balls all the time,” Murray added, “while the two girls were a little softer (at his age) – so it’s quite different.”

World No.116 Murray underwent hip resurfacing surgery in 2019 to save his career.
Earlier this year he had hoped to compete in the Australian Open, but a positive coronavirus test prevented him from making it to the first grand slam of the tennis season, which was won by Novak Djokovic.

Murray is a three-time Grand Slam champion and former world No. 1.
