"I'm an idiot": Andy Murray gets wedding ring stolen before Indian Wells campaign
“Needless to say I’m in the bad books at home so I want to try and find it,” he said on Instagram.

Andy Murray is officially in the California desert and although he hasn't played a single match at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, he's taken a massive loss. On Wednesday night, the three-time major champion's wedding ring was stolen along with a pair of tennis shoes at his hotel.
Following a very hot and sweaty practice session, Murray decided to not take his smelly shoes into his hotel room. With no patio, he opted to leave his shoes underneath his car outside to allow his kicks to air out over night. What seemed like a great idea, quickly turned into one of the worst.
When he returned to the car in the morning, he noticed his shoes were gone along with something of much more importance—his wedding ring.
"Where’s your wedding ring?’ and I was like: ‘Oh no.’ I tie my wedding ring to my tennis shoes when I’m playing because I can’t play with it on my hand, so yeah, my wedding ring’s been stolen as well," Murray said.
In his most recent Instagram post, he admitted he was an "idiot" and is wondering what the reward should be for getting it back. Fans quickly took to the comment section giving a few ideas, which consisted of: tournament tickets, more shoes, a signed racquet, and a match with Murray himself.
Unfortunately no updates or good news has been given concerning the ring, and his wife Kim is not too happy with the former No. 1. Let's just hope his first week on the court goes a little better than off of it. He's set to face Adrian Mannarino in the first round.
