Judy Murray reveals she turned down top post at Lawn Tennis Association

Edinburgh, Sept 29 (ANI): Andy Murray's mother Judy has revealed that she turned down the chance to take charge of tennis' governing body in the UK, the Lawn Tennis Association.

According to The Scotsman, Judy Murray is the captain of the British team in the Fed Cup, the female equivalent of the Davis Cup, and was a performance coach at the governing body until 2009.

She has coached double Grand Slam winner, Andy and his brother Jamie, who won the mixed doubles title at Wimbledon in 2007, the report said.

Andy now works under the tutelage of Austrian coach Ivan Lendl, and Judy Murray said that Lendl's presence has helped to keep the Murray camp calm at difficult moments, the report added.

Judy said that she would rather die than become LTA chief executive, the report further said.

Canadian Michael Downey was unveiled in the 600,000 pound-a-year role earlier this week, according to the report. (ANI)
