Kim Murray supports husband Andy as he sails through second round of US Open

Kim Murray has been supporting husband Andy at the US Open, and looked engrossed in the action as she watched him play against Marcel Granollers in the second round of the tennis championships.

The 28-year-old has been present at Andy's matches, which are currently taking place in New York, and was spotted cheering him on as he made it through the first round in straight sets on Thursday. The match lasted two hours and 22 minutes, with Andy winning with three match points. He is next up against either Kei Nishikori or Karen Khachaonv for the next round.


Kim was engrossed in the match

The happy mother of seven-month-old daughter Sofia looked trendy yet casual, wearing a striped T-shirt under a pair of light denim dungarees, while keeping her long brunette locks down.

Little Sophia was not present at the match, but Andy previously opened up about fatherhood and how "for the first time ever" he felt that playing tennis was a distraction from his home life. He told BBC Sports: "For the first time ever, tennis is probably more of a distraction from my home life than the other way around.

"Beforehand, in the build-up to a Slam final, I'd always be thinking about that match. I don't feel like that just now – I'm just looking forward to the next time I see Sophia and Kim."

He also spoke about his hopes that his daughter will love to play tennis, saying: "Sophia's already watched a bit of tennis with Kim at home over these last couple of weeks and maybe when she's older she'll want to come and see me play.


"I would like that; it would be nice for me in a selfish way. I'm sure she won't be that interested but it gives me a little bit of extra motivation to keep going when I get a bit older."
