Federer in kilt at "Murray Live" charity match

Following the success of Andy Murray Live in its debut year in 2016, at which £305,000 was raised for Unicef and Glasgow based Young People’s Futures, world number one Andy Murray took part in an entertaining spectacle of exhibition tennis with audience participation, comedy and music, while raising money for charity. This event took place on Tuesday 7th November 2017 at The SSE Hydro Glasgow.

 

This year, Murray took on former world number one, Roger Federer, in the singles match. Roger Federer won over the Scottish crowd by wearing a kilt as he took on local favourite Andy Murray and said he "felt naked in it". Returning Murray looked to be moving well enough during his singles match with Federer at a sold-out event which the Swiss won on a tiebreak after both men claimed a set 6-3.

 

As well as creating a legacy tennis event in Scotland, it is important to Murray that all the proceeds from Andy Murray Live are donated to charity. Each year the funds are shared equally between Unicef UK, the world’s leading children’s organisation, of which Murray is an Ambassador, and a local Scottish charity.
