Exclusive: Andy Murray Quits Tennis To Pursue Knitting Passion

Tennis pro Andy Murray OBE, has decided it's time to retire from the sport to finally focus on another passion of his, knitting. Mum, Judy has always been a keen crafter, and it's clear that her love of yarn has rubbed off on her athletic son. Judy, who is also a tennis coach, explained the similarities between knitting and tennis. “Knitting is great for manual dexterity, great for concentration, it’s great for rhythm, and timing and attention to detail, so there you go: tennis and knitting, it’s all the same thing really.”
