Tennis coach stable


MELBOURNE. — Tennis coach Nigel Sears was in a stable condition yesterday after a dramatic mid-match collapse at the Australian Open which prompted his son-in-law, Andy Murray, to race to his bedside.

Sears, the coach of Ana Ivanovic, was watching the former world number one’s match against Madison Keys late on Saturday when he collapsed on a stairway inside Rod Laver Arena and needed lengthy emergency treatment.

Murray, whose wife Kim Sears is heavily pregnant, was playing on the neighbouring Margaret Court Arena unaware of the emergency, and he rushed to see his father-in-law in hospital after coming off court.” — AFP.
