Andy Murray's honeymoon will wait until end of season

Andy Murray will delay his honeymoon until after the tennis season as he looks to continue his recent resurgence.

The Scot will wed long-term girlfriend Kim Sears on April 11, a day before the start of the year's third Masters event in Monte Carlo.

And while the 27-year-old admits he is unlikely to head to Monaco straight after his nuptials, he will be delaying any honeymoon until the end of the campaign, with the season-ending World Tour Finals taking place in mid-November.

"Depending on how I feel after the wedding there's potential to play Monte Carlo, but I'd say that's unlikely," he said. "The honeymoon won't be until the end of the year."

Murray (pictured) is back up to four in the world rankings after dropping as low as 12 in September last year, advancing up the standings with wins in Shenzhen, Vienna and Valencia before reaching a fourth Australian Open final.

Meanwhile, British number one Heather Watson battled through more than two hours of sweltering heat to beat Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina 3-6 6-1 7-5 to reach the second round of the Miami Open.
