Andy Murray's dog Maggie 'opens Twitter account' to offer analysis as he heads for Wimbledon glory


Causing may-hem: Andy Muray, seen here with his new dog Rusty and girlfriend Kim Sears with Maggie May, who has her own Twitter account

When Andy Murray begins his Wimbledon challenge this week, Twitter followers will be hoping for some valuable insights into his form and state of mind – from his border terrier Maggie May.

She has become a star in her own right after an account on the popular social media site was set up under the name maggiemay_hem.

The page – which it is suspected is written with just a little help from Murray’s long-term girlfriend, Kim Sears, 24 – offers a dog’s-eye view of life with Murray, who is currently ranked number four in the world.

Shortly before his victory at the Queen’s Club tournament in London last week, Maggie tweeted: ‘As long as you bring home the bacon (lots of it and crispy) we’re happy.’

And in April, when Murray and Sears got a new border terrier puppy called Rusty, Maggie posted a picture of herself and the latest arrival and wrote: ‘Intruder alert! Give u deets when I have them, right now trying2figure out when he’s leaving.’

Murray's munchies: The treats are a firm favourite for the sporting star

Murray, 24, took time out from his preparations for Wimbledon to join Miss Sears and their dogs for a relaxing walk in the park last week.

While the tennis star was dressed down in tracksuit and trainers, Miss Sears showed off her trim figure in snugly fitting jeans and a striped T-shirt.

The couple bought Maggie in 2008 to help Murray relax away from the court and also to keep Miss Sears company while her boyfriend takes part in tournaments around the world.

The dog is thought to be named after Rod Stewart’s 1971 hit single Maggie May. Murray and Miss Sears have been ¬dating since 2006.

When they split in 2009, Miss Sears secured custody of Maggie May until the couple reconciled six months later.

Murray pigs out

When he’s feeling down, there’s one thing guaranteed to raise Andy Murray’s spirits – Percy Pig sweets.

The player’s mother Judy revealed how she buys him the Marks & Spencer fruit-flavoured gums. ‘He loves them. If I forget to get them he asks, “Where’s my Percy Pigs?” ’

At £1 a bag, the sweets are certainly an affordable treat for a millionaire.
