Andy Murray has revealed his eldest daughter Sophia, five, is already playing tennis.

The Wimbledon superstar, 34, and his wife Kim Sears are parents to four children; five-year-old Sophia, Edie, three, Teddy Barron, one, and a newborn baby whose name is yet to be revealed.

Andy, who will return to play at Wimbledon for the first time in four years this week, rarely speaks about family but in a new interview with This Morning's Alison Hammond, he admitted little Sophia is keen to follow in his footsteps.

Speaking to Alison about his parenting approach and what makes him “proud” to be dad, Andy said: “Seeing the kids sitting at the table behaving and eating their food and going to bed at the right time, those sort of things make me proud."

“My eldest daughter plays [tennis] once a week," he added.

During the chat, Andy also revealed that he has some unusual traditions when it comes to preparing for tennis matches.

"I tend to use the same shower,” the tennis player admitted. "It's a bit weird. Especially if there's someone else in there – it's a bit odd standing outside the cubicle."

Andy and artist Kim live their lives out of the limelight at their countryside home in Surrey.

Last year, Andy gave a rare insight into his family life and how he dealt with the pandemic.

"At the time coronavirus started I was rehabbing, and I was actually fine missing tennis, because everybody else was missing it as well,” he told The Times.

“I just got to spend lots of time with my family at home."
