Kim Sears made her first high profile appearance since the birth of her daughter Sophia at the Miami Open on Monday. The 28-year-old took some time away from her baby daughter to cheer on Andy Murray in the third round of the tournament at Miami's Crandon Park.

Wearing a loose white top and crochet shorts with a navy floral kimono, Kim was stylish as ever as she cheered on her husband from the player's box alongside her father-in-law Nigel Murray. The new mum was unable to stay for the whole match, and missed Andy's defeat to rival Grigor Dimitrov as she left during the second set after checking her phone.

Kim Sears supported Andy Murray at the Miami Open on Monday

Kim and her daughter have been in Miami for over a week to support Andy during the annual tournament. They have been joined by Kim's mother Leonore, who has no doubt been offering a helping hand with childcare while Andy played in the competition.

The mother-daughter duo were previously spotted taking baby Sophia out for a stroll in the city shortly before the tournament commenced, with doting grandmother Leonore cradling the newborn in a white blanket.

The couple's trip to the US came just six weeks after they welcomed their baby daughter at the beginning of February. Kim has since been enjoying time with the newborn at home while Andy has made his return to work, competing in both the Davis Cup and the Indian Wells Masters in California.

Earlier in the month Andy told reporters that Kim and Sophia planned to travel to Florida so they could spend time together as a family during the Miami Open. He said that they were going to see how well their trip went before deciding if Kim and Sophia would continue to travel to other tournaments in the future.

"Babies are pretty portable at this age I think," Andy told reporters during the Davis Cup. "She's going to come to Miami and see how that goes. We'll just play it by ear a little bit and see how well that works out. It's not really up to me. It's up to Kim as well, how much she would like to travel.

"Kim only really comes to maybe five tournaments during the year so maybe she'll come to two or three more, but I don't see us travelling as a family all the time because Kim doesn't love just being there to watch tennis all of the time either."
