After Andy Murray’s catastrophic coaching career, Chris Evert took a jibe at him

After his early Monte-Carlos Masters exit, he started giving tennis coaching to his five-year-old daughter Edie Murray.

Former World No.1 Andy Murray used to be a big force in tennis alongside Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer. But injuries plagued his career and now, he has slipped to 57 in the ATP rankings.

However, the Brit might be hoping to see his children take up the sport in the future. That is why, after his early Monte-Carlo Masters exit, he started giving tennis coaching to his five-year-old daughter Edie Murray.

But his experience as a coach turned out to be a hilarious one. Murray shared his daughter’s note on his Instagram Story which reads: “Dear dady I am not going to play tennis for a while. Lots of love, Edie.” Edie expressed that she no longer wants to learn tennis under her father’s tutelage because her father, as Murray claimed, stands too close to her during the training session.

This incident saw Murray’s mother Judy Murray taking a cheeky dig at her son, stating that Murray should send Edie to the Miss Hits program to learn the game in a fun manner. Sharing the cute note of her granddaughter, Judy wrote: “Somebody needs the @Miss_Hits programme. Perfect fun started tennis activities for girls age 5-8.”

Reacting to Judy’s tweet, former World No.1 Chris Evert couldn’t control her laughter and posted five laughing emoticons as her caption.
