Andy Murray lost his wedding ring along with his sweaty tennis shoes at Indian Wells 2021

In one of the most funnier moments this year on tour, Murray revealed in the clip that he usually ties his wedding ring to his shoes because he can’t wear it while practicing. Thus, along with his shoes, the wedding ring also got stolen.

The video immediately gathered attention as people shared their hilarious reactions on the Brit’s story. Moments ago, the official twitter page of ATP tour also posted a series of photos where the ring survived Murray’s athletics on court. But, it didn’t survive a night under his car.

Even though there is still no information on who stole Andy’s wedding ring and his two pairs of tennis shoes, Tennis Channel gave him a pleasant surprise ahead of their interview.

I don’t know what I’m going to do because the shoes that I wear, they don’t sell them. In hindsight, it was an error, but I really don’t know why anyone would want to steal smelly old tennis shoes”, Murray told Tennis Channel.
