Romeo Beckham Hits a Few with Tennis Star Andy Murray
Serve it like Beckham?
David Beckham’s son Romeo Beckham is apparently a passionate tennis player these days. So much so in fact, his famous dad set up a casual practice session between Romeo and the world’s second-ranked player, Andy Murray.
The 13-year-old and Murray hit the ball around in London on Sunday (June 12, 2016) before the champion competes in the Aegon Championships this week.
“Right now [tennis] is his sport,” the Beckham patriarch told atpworldtour.com. “He gave up on football at the ripe old age of 13 and now he plays tennis four or five times a week. He enjoys himself. It’s a great sport and it’s a big privilege from him to be here today.”
The young athlete looked thrilled to practice alongside the Murray, who will be defending his Queen’s Club title in the coming days.
“When you look at role models, you want them to be passionate about the sport and to play hard all the time. Andy is one of those players and is a great model for many kids around the world,” Beckham added.
