Andy Murray has backed the idea of a new national tennis academy in Scotland to encourage promising junior players. The US Open champion was speaking as thousands of fans turned out to see him on a walkabout in his hometown of Dunblane after his triumph in New York. Murray visited the club where he had started out as a youngster and said he would like to see national facilities to support tennis in Scotland.
He said a new tennis academy would make a big difference to the sport. Murray, 25, told BBC Scotland: "One of the things that is missing is a focal point for tennis that a lot of the promising juniors can go to practise at and have the best coaching."
