The BBC Is Preparing A Documentary On Andy Murray

The BBC is preparing to lift the profile of Andy Murray even further as it films a documentary on the life of Britain’s first Grand Slam champion in three-quarters of a century. The US Open winner last autumn has been allowing camera crews to follow him around to gather behind-the-scenes material for the production.

The program, to be aired this summer prior to Wimbledon is hoping to provide a picture of the man behind the racquet, a Scot whose scratchy, occasionally abrasive public persona is far removed from that of a smooth, polished Roger Federer, a fun-loving perfectionist Novak Djokovic, or never-say-die Spaniard Rafael Nadal.

Taping began last month as Murray went to ground after his third straight Australian Open finals defeat, choosing to train in Florida instead of competing on the ATP in February. Longtime girlfriend Kim Sears and the couple’s two dogs will also figure in the final product.

“The BBC were also out with us in Miami doing some filming for a documentary that’s coming out just before Wimbledon, which is pretty exciting, but more about that nearer the time,” No. 3 Murray confirmed on his website.

“It was good being back in Miami after a short break at home in the UK. In between training sessions I managed to sneak in a few Miami Heat games, it’s great to see them doing so well.”
