Andy Murray lost his wedding ring … after his sneakers were stolen from under a car
By Ben Church, CNN
It’s safe to say that Andy Murray had a nightmare preparing for the Indian Wells tournament this week – and it has nothing to do with playing tennis.
The three-time Grand Slam champion posted a video on Instagram Thursday, asking for help after losing his two coaches and, more importantly, his alliance.
The ordeal began after the 34-year-old returned from dinner, saying his trainers were starting to smell after practicing for hours in the Californian sun.
So he decided to let them dry under the car when he got back to his hotel.
After leaving them in the air overnight, Murray returned in the morning to find that his coaches were gone, meaning he was forced to find another pair in preparation for his game against Adrian Mannarino on Friday.
Annoying? Yes. End of the world? Probably not. But unfortunately for the Scotsman, he had forgotten an important fact.
“While I was getting ready for my practice, my physiotherapist told me” where is your wedding ring? “, and I was like” oh no, “” Murray explained, trying to hold back the laughter in a video message.
“I basically tie my wedding ring to my tennis shoes when I play because I can’t play with my hand. So my wedding ring was also stolen.
By the sheepish look on Murray’s face, we can tell that the news has not gone well with his wife Kim Sears, whom he married in 2015 and with whom he has four children.
“Needless to say, I’m in the wrong books at home so I want to try and find it,” he continued.
“So if anyone can share that or have some idea of where it is, that would be very helpful so I can try to get it back and get to the bottom of it.”
Murray wrote a caption to accompany his cry for help, writing: “Yeah, I know I’m an idiot and looking back it sounds like a terrible idea, but I need help.”
I hope someone can help Murray recover from his last double fault.
