Andy Murray’s mother Judy reacts to the Brit testing out the umpire’s chair at Shanghai Masters 2023

Andy Murray’s mother Judy has reacted to the Brit trying out the umpire’s chair prior to his first-round match at the 2023 Shanghai Masters.

Murray came into Shanghai following disappointing early exits at the Zhuhai Championships and the China Open. Asian Karatsev beat the 36-year-old 6-4, 3-6, 2-6 in the Zhuhai Championships. He put up a determined performance against Alex de Minaur at the China Open but unfortunately fell short and lost 6-3, 5-7 7-6(6).

Before commencing his first-round match against World No. 41 Roman Safiullin which was held at the Qizhong Forest Sports City Arena in Shanghai, China, Andy Murray was seen taking a seat on the umpire’s chair and testing it out. He settled into the chair, adjusting his position and familiarizing himself with its movements. The former World No. 1 also inspected the umpire’s monitor and the microphone.

The video of the same was shared by the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA). The Brit’s mother Judy Murray took to social media to re-share LTA’s video and included a thinking face emoji.

Roman Safiullin beat Andy Murray 6-3, 6-2 to book his place in the second round of the Shanghai Masters. The Russian will next face Germany’s Alexander Zverev.
