Murray nearly forgets to hug his mom

We can imagine that the minutes immediately following a win in

the Wimbledon final are something of a haze. Your mind is probably

not all there.

So Andy Murray can be excused for a brief, funny, little lapse

Sunday after finishing off

win over Novak Djokovic. Murray climbed into his box in the

stands above Centre Court and gave hugs or high-fives to just about

everyone:

He only left out one person … his mother, Judy.

Yes, after going down the line and hugging coach Ivan Lendl,

girlfriend Kim Sears, friend and fellow tennis pro Ross Hutchins

and others, Murray started to climb back down before hearing his

mother’s voice and turning around to give her the much-deserved

embrace:

“I did forget her,’’ Murray said in an

on-court interview later. “I just heard her squealing when I

tried to get down.’’

All ended happily, of course, as you can see:
