News William Murray says, after Judy abandoned the boys, he “kept the family home and looked after Andy and Jamie for several years” Published 2 weeks ago on November 16, 2020 By Serena McCauley The dad of Andy and Jamie Murray has claimed he was left to raise the boys after ex-wife Judy walked out. William Murray says, “I was the one in the family home with the two boys when my wife walked away from our marriage.” William Murray says despite the public perception, it was Judy who left the family home in Dunblane when the boys were young. And in a bid to put the record straight, he has revealed how he cooked and cleaned for the boys in their teens until Andy left for Barcelona to further his tennis career. William said that, after Judy left, he “kept the family home and looked after them for the next four or five years. A lot of people don’t realise that because the story isn’t portrayed that way.” “That’s fine by me because the boys know exactly what happened.” He added: “Since Andy and Jamie have been in the public eye for the last couple of years, Judy has always been there with them. That’s just the way it’s worked out and I’m not the kind who runs out and demands publicity. Judy Murray made Andy as kids “To me, it’s just about Andy and Jamie. They are the people that count and as long as they are happy, that’s all that matters.” He added: “Most people get the impression I was an absent father. That was not – and is not – the case.” “I’m happy to stand back in the shadows so long as the facts are right.” Judy has been in the stands throughout the Wimbledon fortnight and has made a career of her own around the success of her sons. A former tennis pro, Judy never reached the heights Andy or Jamie have but in recent years has written newspaper columns and provided radio commentary. She has been seen to be the driving force behind the success of both boys. But William, also revealed the heartache the boys faced when he first had to break the news of the split. He said: “I had to tell them that their mum was leaving home. It ripped me apart to have to hurt them by telling them what I did.” Judy Murray spoke to Zara Janjua (right) and Diana Hunt on the Ask For More podcast “They were distraught. They are very different personalities but they both took the news much the same way and I remember they were very upset. “When you get married and you have a family, you want it to be a unit forever. “Unfortunately, it did not work out that way for us.” William, a regional manager for RS McColl newsagents, said: “Judy stayed in Dunblane so she was still around. “She still took them to tennis but we worked it out together. I might take one to one tournament and she’d take the other to another. “But the tale hasn’t come out like that – it seems she was the one always there. “I worked full-time but I cooked when they came home from school. I did the washing and ironing. “I wouldn’t say I was a single parent because Judy wasn’t absent but I was the one in the family home with the two boys.” Related Topics:Andy or JamieJamie MurrayJudy MurrayWilliam Murray Up Next Serena Williams Shares Unseen Pregnancy Photo and Reaches out to Expecting Moms Don't Miss Andy and Jamie Murray’s father says, “he was left to raise the boys after ex-wife Judy walked out” You may like Andy and Jamie Murray’s father says, “he was left to raise the boys after ex-wife Judy walked out” Judy Murray says, “Andy Murray blew me away… he was absolutely incredible” ‘Andy Murray said to me: ‘Oh my god!
