SO UNCOOL: Andy Murray defeats Thanasi Kokkinakis in a 2023 Australian Open second-round epic.
After an emotional run to the Australian Open third round last week, Andy Murray received a “tough” reality check after returning home to the UK.
Three time Grand Slam winner wreaked havoc on the draw in Melbourne, starting his Grand Slam campaign with a five-set upset of No. 13 seed Matteo Berrettini. He then ousted home hope Thanasi Kokkinakis in a 6-4, 7-6 (4), 6-7 (5), 3-6, 7-5 epic that lasted over five hours and 45 minutes and finished just past four in the morning in Melbourne.
His Australian Open run eventually came to an end at the hands of Roberto Bautista Agut. But the 35-year-old departed Melbourne having recorded his best performance Down Under since 2017, when he reached the fourth round.
But now, it’s “back to reality” for Murray, who shared this hilarious parenthood anecdote on social media on Wednesday.
“School drop off this morning,” Murray wrote on Twitter. “My 6 year old: ‘Daddy don’t give me a kiss and a cuddle anymore when you drop me… Just stay in the car.’
“Tough game. Back to reality!”
Murray and wife Kim Sears are parents to four children, Sophia, six, Edie, four, Teddie, two, and a third daughter (who has not been named publicly), one. The couple began dating in 2005 before tying the knot a decade later in April 2015.
Currently ranked No. 63 in the ATP Live Rankings, Murray is next scheduled to compete with a wildcard at the ATP 500 event in Rotterdam which kicks off on 13 February.
