Andy Murray: Wimbledon’s victor described wedding ring find as ‘great story’

Andy Murray’s wedding ring was discovered before his Wimbledon final match

Britain’s Andy Murray was in “the good books” at Wimbledon after his wedding ring was found following his quarter-final defeat by Tomas Berdych.

The Briton’s new wife Kim Sears removed the ring before the match before putting it back on before losing 6-2 5-7 6-4.

Murray said on Sunday: “There was something like 30 pence in there, but it’s a good story.”

The world number one lost his racquet on court in the final set.

“I had it off and put it back on just before the start of the fifth set, ” added Murray.

“Someone came back to the room after five minutes and it was in a drawer. It’s been going for a week or two. A great story.”

Murray is fourth in the world rankings

Murray and Sears have been in England since their Las Vegas wedding in May, but when the Scot lost to Berdych on Saturday, she wanted to take the ring with her for their return home.

“It was just when she got back in the car and the ring wasn’t there so she had to go back and get it,” said Murray.

He added: “I always appreciate when a fan finds my things. I found out about this little story when I came off, and it’s great to have this one back.”

After losing in the quarter-finals, Murray came from a set down to beat Milos Raonic in the semi-finals.

The final will be played on Sunday, with Murray to face 2016 champion Novak Djokovic.
