Nobody could have expected Andy and Jamie Murray to become No. 1s - Mother

In an interview in Rio de Janeiro, Judy Murray praised her sons Andy and Jamie's achievements. Both of them topped the rankings, Andy in singles and Jamie in doubles, and also won Major titles. “They did amazing things", said Judy.

"Nobody could have ever having expected them to become No. 1 coming from a small town in the middle of Scotland”. Judy also added: “Andy played with Jamie, and we weren’t sure if he’s going to play the doubles, because of course, he has to play singles on Friday and Sunday and to play three matches in a row best of five sets is tough.

So we weren’t sure until the last minute that he was going to play the doubles. And it was in Glasgow, in Scotland, where we live, where tennis is a very tiny sport, just 1 per cent of the population plays tennis. Nobody would ever have expected us to have Grand Slam champions.

So, I was seated in this venue, which is an Athletics Arena, so 9,000 people in Scotland, I watched Jamie and Andy walk out, with Leon Smith as a captain, who I started with as a coach when he was 20, so he’s like my third son.

I just look around and said, ‘Whoa! Whoever would have believed we would have Davis Cup semifinal with Scottish players, Scottish captain and in Scotland.’ So, for me, it was the biggest moment, so many things coming together at the same time."
