Andy Murray is one of the favorites to take home the title at Wimbledon this year. He's ranked number four in the world, and is looking to win his first ever Grand Slam Tournament.
Murray is also one of the most popular tennis players, but not only because of his prowess on the court. Murray's girlfriend, Kim Sears, is often the center of attention at his matches.
Sears is not a tennis player herself, but has been around the sport since she was little. Her father is Nigel Sears, the former tennis coach of Daniela Hantuchová.
The two met at the U.S. Open in 2005. They have been dating ever since, though they did split up for a short time in 2009.
Murray and Sears have been dating for several years, but have no plans of getting married any time soon. They are 25 and 24 years old, respectively. The couple lives together in Surrey, England.
Murray has lost in the semifinals at Wimbledon in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
