Judy Murray shares picture of Andy recreating her famous fist pump


JUDY MURRAY has shown that the “apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” by posting a picture
of her tennis-star son, Andy, striking one of her famous poses.

The 56-year-old tennis coach is famous for passionately supporting both Andy and Jamie whilst their on the court.

The sight of her leaping from her seat and giving a fist pump in the direction of the court is common, especially after one of her sons have won an important point.

She has now taken to Twitter to share an image her 3-time grand slam winning son doing his version of the ‘Murray fistpump’.

She tweeted the picture of Andy to her 178,000 followers yesterday evening with the
caption: “Yep. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. #Olympics”

The brilliant photo, taken at the Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro, shows Andy staring intently into the lens with his left fist clenched.

The resemblance to his passionate mother, who coached him in the early years of his development is clear, with Andy managing to capture the same determined eyes his mother has when watching him play.

Fellow Twitter users were quick to react and spot the similarity between mother and son.

@baillie91 commented: “Got to love a fist pump from Judy Murray.”

@slynwilkin wrote: “Hard working and dedicated, both of them, then?”

Whilst @bigphilfaefife cheekily added: “He’s not as good looking as his mum though!”

Andy cruised through in straight sets against Juan Monaco yesterday to reach the last 16 in the Olympic tennis.

He is looking to defend the title he won in London four years ago and has had his chances greatly improved by Novak Djokovic’s crashing out in the first round.
