Murray warms up for Wimbledon by saving a dog

Andy Murray warmed up for his Wimbledon title defence by saving a dog which had sprinted into the road and into the path of oncoming traffic.

The 27-year-old, who became Britain’s first Wimbledon men’s champion for 77 years when he defeated Novak Djokovic in the 2013 final, said once he had rescued the dog, it tuned out he knew the owners.

The incident happened as Murray, who owns two dogs of his own, Maggie May and Rusty, was driving to the site of the tournament from his home in nearby Surrey, south of London.

Murray insisted that he had not risked injury to himself on the day before he starts his Wimbledon defence against Belgium’s David Goffin.
