Murray to quit if baby comes early

first_imgAndy Murray will leave the Australian Open early if his wife goes into labour prematurely.Kim Sears isn’t expecting until mid-February, but Murray told the Daily Mail newspaper that he’s prepared to withdraw from the first major of the year if she goes into labour early.”I’d go home. For sure, yes,” Murray said in yesterday’s edition. “I want to make sure at the beginning I am there as much as I can be to try and help out, just be there for whatever is really required of me.”The Australian Open, where Murray has reached the final four times but never won, runs from January 18-31.Regardless of his result, Murray said he’s taking off all of February and won’t play again until the first round of the Davis Cup in early March at home against Japan. Britain will be defending the trophy that Murray led them to last month.The second-ranked Murray said he is looking forward to becoming a father.”I am excited about that,” he said. “People have asked me, ‘Do you think it will be a distraction?’ It might be a distraction, but it’s a good distraction.”It’s actually not good to all the time be just concentrating on tennis and your training all of the time. It is important … when you finish on the practice court, be able to just go away and be with your friends and your family.”Murray also reunited with coach Amelie Mauresmo and her first child Aaron in Dubai this week. Mauresmo gave birth in August and Murray hadn’t seen her since Wimbledon in July.”I really enjoy working with her,” he said. “The last six months not seeing her, it’s just nice to have her back as part of the team, and get that continuity going again.”last_img read more

“Fix it” goes on trial for attempted murder

first_img…allegedly wounded man who refused to give him moneyQuincy Henry, also known as “Fix It”, on Wednesday denied that he wounded Troy Bacchus, called “Fletcher”, with the intent of murdering him on September 20, 2015, at Bourda, Georgetown. Henry also denied the alternative count, which stated that he tried to cause grievous bodily harm or to main, disfigure, disable or disarm Bacchus. The defendant entered pleas of not guilty on both counts at his first appearance at the High Court before Justice Brassington Reynolds. A 12-member mixed jury was empanelled to hear the case.Prosecutors Tiffani Lyken, Seeta Bishundial and Narissa Lander are appearing forAccused: Quincy Henrythe State. Meanwhile, the accused was not represented by legal counsel. Justice Reynolds however gave him until today to retain the services of an attorney ahead of the start of the trial.Based on reports surrounding the case, Henry who works as a handyman, had a habit of asking individuals for money. On the day in question, Bacchus refused to give the accused any money which reportedly led to an altercation between the two.During Wednesday’s court appearance, Henry seemed to have difficulty hearing as the Judge and the Court’s Registrar repeated statements several times while communicating with him. The accused was out on $50,000 bail prior to the empanelment, but he was remanded to prison for the duration of the case.last_img read more
