Andy Murray now has a wife and a baby daughter counting on him to do a good job in Davis Cup. The new father is planning a big comeback on his first Davis Cup game against Japan - but his mind is probably full of his baby girl.

"For the first time in many years Andy Murray took a complete two-week break from training early this month, concentrating instead of helping his daughter Sophia into the world," according to Daily Mail.

But the number one Scottish tennis player is now back on the court for Davis Cup against Japan.

"Britain will begin the defence of the title they won for the first time in 79 years against Belgium in November at Birmingham's Barclaycard Arena," according to Daily Mail.

Andy Murray took time off for Kim Sears to deliver their first baby girl. The baby news had the entire tennis world in baited breath as the father set his career aside for his daughter and wife.

"The world No 2 is missing the ATP events in Rotterdam and Dubai this month as he awaits the birth of his first child with wife Kim," according to Sky Sports.

But Andy Murray should not worry so much about his rankings falling. The experts say that he never performed well in February so in fact, this break may come at an excellent time in the season.

"It's very difficult to plan when your first child is going to be but it's probably the best planning for Andy because he has always struggled after the Australian Open, and understandably so," a tennis expert told Sky Sports.

Kim Sears did her part by stalling her baby delivery so that her husband Andy Murray didn't have to miss Australian Open final 2016.

"While her tennis star husband Andy Murray is sweating it out in the blazing Melbourne heat, heavily pregnant Kim Sears is keen to maintain her own exercise regime. But with only a few weeks to go before their first child is due, she has opted for the gentler activity of regular Pilates," according to Daily Mail.
