Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka’s “Love Island” meeting.
Looking like we should be on #loveisland instead of a tennis court but it’s not how it looks💋 Was nice to get back out on the court again with @stanwawrinka85 today. A lot has happened to both of us since we last played in Paris last year. Hopefully we are both through the worst of it. See you on Wednesday 🙂
Judy Murray has certainly missed Andy.
