Murray splits with girlfriend Kim Sears

By for on
Andy Murray has broken up with his girlfriend Kim Sears after being together for over four years.

Suspicions were aroused after Kim failed to attend the World Tour Finals to show support for Murray. At this point, fans began to speculate, coming up with explanations such as Kim simply struggling with her University work load to one extreme theory that she had fallen pregnant.

On 26 November, several days before the news broke, one MurraysWorld member wrote,

With Kim not attending Andy's matches at such an important event so close to home and the fact Andy has served the worst since he turned pro and the fact he seems more angry and out of control at the moment, surely must mean we can speculate that there might be problems between them [Andy and Kim] right now.

A friend of Kim broke the news to the media by saying,

No one else is involved. Both Andy and Kim are saddened that the relationship is over, but they mutually felt it was time for them to part.

They are both very young, and it is not unusual for young people to split up. There were no blazing rows, or anything like that. Kim left Andy’s house under amicable circumstances. They are still in contact with one another and remain good friends.

After all, Kim has been an extremely important part of Andy’s life, and they always spent as much time together as they could.

Kim must be commended for keeping such a low profile in the media given her position. Ever since she started dating Murray back in late 2005, she has remained utterly dignified and private in regards to her very public relationship with the Scot.

Thanks Allan for this sad news.  I did note in one photograph by Sylvie earlier that I thought where Kim was walking with Andy but the distance between them was bigger than expected (for two people who are close to each other).  I hope that they can make up with each other (similar to how Prince Williams made up with his girlfriend Kate) as I think they are quite compatible with each other although maybe lacking a bit of experience in communicating to resolve issues.

Urgh...  Not much worse than young love gone wrong.  So hard for kids to deal with.   So hard to impress on them that it does all get better.  yes

The Times have a quote from an 19 Entertainment spokesman.

Andy and Kim have mutually agreed to separate. They remain friends and ask for privacy at this time.
