Mother to Olympic Tennis Champion and Grand Slam Winner Andy Murray will take part in a Q&A session on developing performance at IFAC 2012.
Perhaps one of the most famous mothers in sport, Judy Murray is equally well known for her skills as a tennis coach. Mother to tennis stars Jamie and Andy Murray, the latter now an Olympic Champion and a Grand Slam winner, Judy is credited with feeding the flame of talent. She designed different games to work on the boys’ movement and co-ordination even before they could walk, developing and stretching their physical skills.
Judy coached both her sons as juniors, and still remains a professional tennis coach today – currently the captain of the British Fed Cup team. When the boys were young, she opened a part-time coaching career from the modest facilities of Dunblane Tennis Club, where she was a one-woman centre of excellence. Jamie Baker, Elena Baltacha and Colin Fleming all came into her orbit at different times.
Judy will be at IFAC 2012 on Friday 26 October and will lead a Q&A session on "developing performance" - this will now replace breakout 10.
