Chris Evert reacts to Andy Murray's mother Judy poking fun at her own son

Chris Evert recently reacted to Judy Murray playfully teasing her son Andy on social media.

Judy's comments were in response to Andy Murray's first venture into coaching, which came to a disappointing halt. Having decided to coach his five-year-old daughter Edie after his early exit from the Monte-Carlo Masters, Murray's efforts went in vain; Edie wrote a note to her father stating that she no longer wanted to play tennis.

"Dear dady I am not going to play tennis for a while. Lots of love, Edie," Murray's daughter wrote in the note.

Andy Murray's mother Judy soon shared a picture of Edie's note on Twitter. She poked fun at the former World No. 1 and suggested that her granddaughter could benefit from participating in the 'Miss-Hits' program.

Judy has created the Miss-Hits program for girls aged between five and eight, to learn the basics of tennis in a fun and engaging way.

Andy Murray gears up for Madrid Open 2023

Murray at the 2022 Madrid Open

Andy Murray's clay-court season got off to a disappointing start with a straight-sets loss to Alex de Minaur in the round of 64 at Monte-Carlo. But the former World No. 1 is determined to bounce back, and is currently gearing up to compete in the highly-anticipated ATP Masters 1000 Madrid Open. The tournament is set to begin on Wednesday, April 26.


On Friday, April 21, the Madrid Open's social media account shared some pictures of Andy Murray putting in the hard yards during his practice session before the tournament. The post also highlighted that Murray was the first player to practice at the Manolo Santana Stadium this year.


Earlier, Murray revealed his plans to participate in all three claycourt Masters events and then assess his physical condition to determine if he is fit to compete in the 2023 French Open.

"I’m planning on playing here in Madrid and Rome, and then depending on how the body feels and how I’m playing, I’ll decide on the French Open," Murray said in a recent tinterview with Eurosport.

In 2022, Murray defeated Dominic Thiem and Denis Shapovalov in Madrid, setting up a highly-anticipated showdown against Novak Djokovic in the third round. However, the Brit withdrew from the match, his first against Djokovic in five years, due to illness.
