Andy Murray has reached No. 1 in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings, won three major titles and lifted 46 tour-level trophies overall. But ‘Coach of daughter Edie’ is staying off the resume for the time being.
Murray, the father of four children, has often spoken about how important his children are to him. But according to his Instagram Stories, it sounds like one of his daughters believes he needs to improve his level of tennis coaching.
“Dear daddy I am not going to play tennis for a while lots of love Edie,” Edie wrote in a note to him.
Murray has taken the feedback in stride by posting about it.
“My first venture into the coaching world has ended in disgrace,” Murray wrote on his Instagram Story. “5 year old daughter has quit telling me I don’t want to play anymore.. you stand too close to me.”
Perhaps Murray will consult coach Ivan Lendl for advice. For now, the 35-year-old will turn his attention to the Mutua Madrid Open.
Murray is a two-time champion at the clay-court ATP Masters 1000 event, which begins on 26 April. He owns a 29-9 record at the tournament.
A warm welcome for our two-time champion @andy_murray! ??
