Andy Murray has married his long-term girlfriend Kim Sears in his hometown. The couple, both 27, tied the knot at the magnificent 12th century Dunblane Cathedral in front of their family and close friends.

The bride looked radiant in a beautiful white embroidered gown designed by Jenny Packham. Murray stayed true to his Scottish roots by wearing a blue and green kilt for the ceremony. As the groom arrived with his brother Jamie, he was greeted by a huge cheer from the gathered crowd.

A white wedding car brought Sears to the back of the cathedral, and she battled against the rain as she made her way inside. She was walked down the aisle by her tennis coach father Nigel, followed by her four bridesmaids.

Novak Djokovic ended Andy Murray's hopes of winning a tenth Masters title, battling past him 7-6, 4-6, 6-0 to claim the Miami Open in gruelling conditions.

It was a tightly contested final for the first two sets, with much to admire from Murray. While he had been dismissed easily in Indian Wells, here he made things very difficult for the world number 1. He played with intelligent aggression, hammering his groundstrokes, frequently attacking second serve returns and forcing Djokovic to come up with some of his best defence to stay in the points.

But failing to maintain his first set lead proved costly and despite looking to have the momentum heading into the decider, he faded physically as the Serb accelerated away.

It had been no...

Andy Murray managed to subdue the power and temper of Tomas Berdych like a lid on a boiling pot in today’s Miami Open semi-final. The Scot ran out an ecstatic 6-4 6-4 winner in pressure-cooker temperatures inside Crandon Park.

These two had last met in a heavy-metal Australian Open semi-final. But this time there were no explicit lyrics from Murray’s wife-to-be, Kim Sears, and no animosity over coaches with switched allegiances. Just a shared desire to pummel second serves and rip crosscourt forehands faster than the other guy.

It was all very low key. But much of that was down to Murray’s controlled emotions and exquisitely tempered groundshots on the hot court where he runs himself to a standstill every December.

Each set follo...

Andy Murray recovered from a set down to beat rising star Dominic Thiem 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 in the Miami Open today to secure a semi-final berth.

The Brit struggled to deal with the power of his Austrian opponent early doors, but after having squandered a break in the second set he turned it up a notch, winning eight of the last nine games as he raced into the last four.

The Brit looked to have started confidently, but a lacklustre game in game four saw him throw in two double faults and two unforced errors to tamely hand over the first break to the Austrian.

Murray seemed to be struggling with a shoulder problem, and was struggling to contain Thiem’s aggressive hitting as the Austrian raced into a 4-1 lead, having won 12 of the previ...

Andy Murray has achieved a career milestone, recording his 500th win after overcoming Kevin Anderson 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 in round four of the Miami Open.

Murray is the 46th player in the Open Era to win 500 singles matches. Among active players, he takes his place in the ‘500 win club’ alongside Tommy Robredo, Tomas Berdych, Tommy Haas, Lleyton Hewitt, David Ferrer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.

The match was a closely fought encounter, Anderson's attacking game bringing him a lot of success and enabling him to level the match. But Murray’s returning and greater consistency ultimately proved key in the decider, helping him to neutralise the tall South African’s powerful serve and forehand.
