Andy Murray's girlfriend's shirt a tribute to her colorful language
MELBOURNE, Australia -- Andy Murray's fiancee, Kim Sears, dressed for Sunday's men's final featuring her man and Novak Djokovic in an oversized T-shirt with a message that poked fun at the widespread attention paid to her use of colorful language during Murray's semifinal.
Videos of her apparent expletive-laden outburst during Murray's win over Tomas Berdych on Thursday went viral online and were then picked apart by the British press which tried to read Sears' lips to analyze exactly what she had said.
Rather than shy away from the issue, Sears' T-shirt for the final showed a sense of humor. It read: ''Parental Advisory Explicit Content.''
Murray, who is no stranger to outbursts on the court, defended his fiancee after the semifinal by saying the match had been tense.
''In the heat of the moment you can say stuff that you regret,'' he said when asked about Sears' use of some ''Anglo-Saxon adjectives.''
Neither Murray nor Sears had much to cheer for by the time Sunday's match ended. After Murray won the second set to even the match, Djokovic lost only three games in the final two sets to claim his fifth Australian Open title. Officially, Djokovic won 7-6 (5), 6-7 (4), 6-3, 6-0.
Meanwhile, Murray has lost in all four of his Australian Open finals.
