Andy Murray proposes to longtime girlfriend Kim Sears
Looks like three of tennis’ Big Four are off the market, as Andy Murray has proposed to longtime girlfriend Kim Sears.
The first British man to win the Wimbledon men’s singles event in 77 years was said to have popped the question to Sears last Wednesday. The 27-year-old tennis pro’s agent confirmed to UK’s the Guardian that the proposal occured sometime last week.
Murray and artist Sears, the daughter of famed British tennis player and coach Nigel Sears, met at the 2005 U.S. Open when they were still teenagers. Their relationship became public a year later.
The usually social media-friendly Murray remained mum on the subject of nuptials on his Twitter feed, merely saying he was looking forward to a trip to the Philippines.
Off to the Philippines for the first time today, should be a fun trip… Anyone got some suggestions for first time tourists in Manila?

Murray’s betrothal would side him with the recently married Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer as the Big Four players who are officially engaged. Rafael Nadal is the lone holdout.
The ball is now solely in your court, Rafa.
