After defeating Grigor Dimitrov to defend his Brisbane International title, Andy Murray made an emotional victory speech, saying ”I’d like to dedicate this victory to one of my best friends. He’s back home watching – you’re going to get through it.”
Our curiosity didn’t have to wait long, as Ross Hutchins soon after tweeted:
Happy New Year to all!Unfortunately I will be away from tennis for a while as I was recently diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma..
