Judy Murray has spoken of the rivalry between her sons Andy and Jamie & termed it as a “challenge” for her.

The 57-year-old tennis coach revealed that the competition between 31-year-old Jamie and 30-year-old Andy has always “been a challenge”.

In an interview, Ms Murray said when the pair would play each others as youngsters she always hoped Jamie, as the older son, would beat Andy to follow the “natural order”.

Ms Murray recalled one fraught occasion after Andy had won his first Wimbledon title in 2013, where the brothers were playing table tennis at home. Within five minutes, Jamie declared he would never play Andy again, with his younger brother retorting he would use his left hand to level the playing field.

In the Wimbledon Finals, the pair of Jamie Murray & Martina Hingis were crowned Mixed Doubles Champion after a dominating win against Heather Watson & Henri kontinen by 6-4, 6-4.

But his younger brother Andy allowed Jamie a chance to enjoy the limelight, choosing to watch from the locker room as the pair defeated the defending champions.

Andy, who is known to often miss his brother’s matches because he reportedly finds them too nerve-racking, opted to watch away from the glare of the media on Centre Court.

Asked whether his brother had watched his victory, Jamie said: “Yeah, I just saw him there. He said he came, like, in the middle of the first set. I think he just waited in the lockers.

He added: “He said he didn’t watch it. I don’t know if he snuck a few points in or not.”

His decision to remain in the background for his brother’s Wimbledon final may have been down to a difficult moment for Jamie in 2006, where his final on the Futures circuit in Sheffield was overshadowed by Andy’s first ever ATP title the day before.

“It was a huge thing for Jamie,” Ms Murray told the Sunday Herald, “and we arrived and we were thinking – why are Sky TV here, they never come to these little events?

“They were there because Andy had won this huge thing and the closest they were going to get was Jamie – and they completely ruined his day. I felt awful for him.”
