TV Cameras Catch Judy Murray’s Reaction to Novak Djokovic Defeat

TV Cameras Catch Judy Murray’s Reaction to Novak Djokovic Defeat

Judy Murray‘s reaction to Novak Djokovic exiting Wimbledon is as good as you’d expect.

The mother of Andy Murray very rarely shows her emotions when watching her son in action.

She’s in his box for the third round clash between the Scot and Australia’s John Millman so wouldn’t have had an eye on the finale of Djokovic’s match with Sam Querrey.

The reigning Wimbledon champion was on the ropes after going two sets down last night before a rain delay saw the game pushed to today.

Djokovic hit back by winning the third set, but couldn’t stop Querrey taking the fourth via a tie-breaker for the American to win.

News of Djokovic – who was eyeing a calendar year grand slam – going out in the first week quickly spread to Centre Court, where Murray is playing, with the scoreboard showing the result to the crowd at a break.

That’s when Judy let out a wry smile at the result:

To be fair to her, Murray fans around the world would have been jumping up and down from their seat if they were in her shoes.

And her reaction is to be expected when her son has lost five of the 10 grand slam finals he’s appeared in to Djokovic.
