Murray unconcerned that parenthood would impact his career

Montreal: Scottish tennis ace Andy Murray on Monday said he is not concerned about the impact his first child may have on his career. The World No.3 and his wife Kim are expecting their first child in February next year.

“I’m more concerned about the baby being healthy,” Murray was quoted as saying by BBC here where he will participate in this week’s Rogers Cup.

“We’re both extremely happy and feel very lucky. It’s very exciting news, but it’s also private news. There’s stuff we want to keep close to our friends and family and I hope that everybody can respect that,” he said.

The 28-year-old has been given a bye to the second round of the Rogers Cup which will serve as Murray’s second hard court competition in the run-up to the US Open and follows a surprise defeat by World No.53 Russian Teymuraz Gabashvili in the second round of the Washington Open last week.

“I feel okay, it always get a bit of time getting used to the hard courts,” said Murray. “Not so much with the tennis, but it’s a tough surface on the body after coming from clay and grass which are a little bit more forgiving.”
