Andy Murray’s girlfriend Kim Sears has been with him for more than six years, though there have at least been a couple of off moments in their on again, off again relationship. One of those breakups, in 2009, was reportedly due to the fact that Kim was fed up with Andy spending too much time on his PlayStation and not enough time with her. Sounds kinda crazy huh? Not when you consider that Andy’s coach has told people that Andy spent as much as 7 hours a day playing video games. As much as we are pro-video games here, even we take Kim’s side on this one. The couple eventually got back together, at which point we’re assuming Andy toned down his video game time.
Ever wonder if tennis players follow the boxer creed and refrain from sex before tournaments? Wonder no more. When asked about the subject, Andy told the Daily Mail:
I’m not one of those sportsmen who practises a strict policy of sexual abstinence before playing… Tennis is not like boxing. I remember a former world heavyweight whose trainer banned him from having sex six weeks before a fight. We play every week, so with a boxer’s mentality we’d always be saying “no”.
The 23 year old Kim Sears is an aspiring actress, who graduated from Sussex University in 2010. While she hasn’t shown up in anything any of us have seen, she recently told a British television broadcaster that she doesn’t like living off Andy’s living and wants a career of her own. Apparently deciding that acting wasn’t going to happen, Kim has started her own business, called Brushes and Paws. The business is centered around her love of painting animals, specifically dogs. Kim even created a Twitter account for her dog Maggie May, who has been known to start public spats with the dogs of other celebrities.
