Who Is Kim Sears, Andy Murray’s Girlfriend?
Kim Sears has become just as famous as her tennis star boyfriend Andy Murray over the last year, catching attention from the cameras as she cheers on the reigning Wimbledon champion in style.
Sears, 25, claimed the spotlight following Murray’s win at the 2012 US Open, when he left the court to plant a kiss on his longtime girlfriend. In the five-set final in Forest Hills, Queens, in New York City, Murray defeated the tournament’s defending champ Novak Djokovic. Sears was also in the stands when Murray, 26, beat out Roger Federer for the gold in men’s singles at the 2012 London Olympics.
Sears and Murray have been seeing one another since meeting at a U.S. Open party in 2005. Sears was there with her father, a professional tennis coach, while Murray was just launching his professional career. At a tennis tournament in San Jose, Calif., the following year, Murray earned his first tourney victory. Wasting no time, Murray ascended into the stand to give Sears her first post-victory lip lock.
While Murray has had success on the tennis courts, Sears took to her studies, earning straight A’s in her A-levels exams and going on to major in English Literature at the University of Sussex. After graduating, Sears has pursued a career in art, and has an extensive online portfolio, which features a number of her paintings. Among her paintings not for sale, is a picture of her romantic kiss with Murray in San Jose.
More camera-ready than she was in 2006, Sears dresses to impress in the stands. When Murray sealed his victory against Djokovic at Wimbledon this year, she was wearing a mint-colored dress from Victoria Beckham’s spring line paired with Aldo wedges, a pink Mulberry bag and Pandora bangles. At Murray’s first round victory against Michael Llodra, Sears sported a modest black ensemble with a Ted Baker Baillie bag.
After eight years as a couple and their continued inseparability, speculation is only growing stronger that the Scottish tennis star will soon get down on one knee to Sears – after he gets over his disappointing straight-set loss to Stanislas Wawrinka in the 2013 US Open quarterfinals.
