From the United States to the United Kingdom and beyond, people are taking a stand against injustice and racial discrimination. On Tuesday in Roehampton, Andy Murray returned to competitive tennis, but before taking the court against Liam Broady, the players made a moving gesture together.
The three-time major champion kneeled alongside Broady and the chair umpire before the start of the match in solidarity for the Black Lives Movement.
"In some ways it’s seen as being radical," Murraysaid in an interview with BBC. "I feel like it’s the complete opposite, I think it’s a very fair thing that everyone gets treated exactly the same regardless of their skin color, sex or whatever. It’s basic."
In his first match since November, Murray would go on to win handily, 6-2, 6-2.
