Andy Murray interested in post-tennis career as a golf caddie or football coach
Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray has revealed he would consider a career in a different sport after retiring from tennis.
The 33-year-old withdrew from the Miami Open Masters 1000 event last week – at which he had been given a wildcard – with a groin injury.
“I love sport, so something else that would interest me post-playing would be working in another sport,” Murray told the Gentleman’s Journal.
“I got asked about this a little while ago and, because I really like golf, being a caddie on a golf tour would be exciting – to be up close and personal with top golfers and to learn about another sport like that.
“There’s probably also some crossover between tennis and golf on the mental side of things, and helping a golfer with that might be interesting.
“Or getting my coaching badges in football – that would be fun.”
The world No. 119 has featured in three tournaments so far in 2021 – the Biella Challenger, the Montpellier ATP 250, and the Rotterdam ATP 500.
