Murray is currently world No1, and will start his title defence on Monday at Wimbledon against Alexander Bublik.
Previously, the star has opened up about how significant family is to him – more than any “tennis match”.
He said: “My child is more important to me and my wife is more important to me than a tennis match.

“It’s a big change for me and my wife, but that’s the current priority.”
Speaking about the sport which he is so well-known for, he added: “Tennis is a tough sport and the demands we put on our bodies on a daily basis are huge.
“It’s rare to find a player that is 100 per cent fit but that’s the brutal reality of most elite sport.

“It’s about managing your body and your training as best you can, so that when the time comes you’re as ready as possible to perform.
“Players going into a tournament with injuries and niggles is nothing new.”
He continued: “Over the years I have entered plenty of tournaments with less than ideal preparation, you just need to accept that it will be the case sometimes and find a way.
“My preparation on the grass hasn’t been great but there’s nothing I can do to change that now. The standard on the tour is high right now, so you can’t afford to look too far ahead, it’s one match at a time.”
