Scottish tennis champ wins love game
The quaint town of Dunblane, Scotland, has been set abuzz by the wedding of tennis legend Andy Murray to his long-term girlfriend, Kim Sears. Saturday’s event -dubbed “the royal wedding of Scotland” – took place at Dunblane Cathedral, with cheering crowds spilling onto the streets to support their home-grown talent.The grand slam and Olympic champion donned a traditional blue and green tartan kilt, while his bride dazzled in a vintage-style gown by British designer Jenny Packham.
The people of Dunblane braved wind, rain and even snow to catch a glimpse of the happy couple, having seen Murray grow from a young boy into a British sporting legend. “Absolutely fabulous to see them today, especially Andy coming back to his hometown,” said one lady in the crowd. “He’s a hero. He’s done something that all local boys would really strive to do. He’s a superstar,” added another. The couple met at the U.S. Open in 2005 and got engaged in November last year. Before the ceremony, and understandably lost for words, Murray resorted to a series of emoticons to sum up his excitement for the day.
