The couple, who have a 17-month-old daughter Sophia, are said to have already told friends and family the good news.

Shortly after the birth of Sophia, Murray insisted that family came first, saying: “My child is more important to me and my wife is more important to me than a tennis match. That’s the current priority.”

Murray has already revealed he missed Sophia’s first steps due to playing in a tournament abroad, and suggested that he had also missed his daughter’s first words.

The 30-year-old Scot has been struggling with a hip injury ahead of the start of Wimbledon, but came through a three-hour practice session on Saturday without any difficulties.

The pregnancy was confirmed by Murray’s agent, who added that the couple didn’t wish to comment further.
