Kim Sears actually won the Australian Open this weekend with a brilliant sartorial response to that semi-final swear gate.
Andy Murray’s fiancée wore a Parental Advisory: Explicit Content sweatshirt, thought to be from Alexander Wang’s AW14 collection, as she watched the men’s final on Sunday, showing that she’s making no apologies over her hooligan-style passion for the game.
‘I didn’t know she was going to wear it today,’ Andy told reporters after he lost to Novak Djokovic yesterday. ‘I saw that she bought it yesterday when she went out shopping.’
‘She said she walked past it and she said she had to buy it. But I didn’t know if she was going to wear the shirt today or not. She wasn’t wearing it when I left the hotel. It was a funny shirt.’
Dubbed ‘Kim Swears’, Kim saw a huge media backlash when she was caught on camera hurling abuse at Andy’s opponent Thomas Berdych from the box.
Along with Andy’s other mega-fan, his fist-pumping mum Judy, Kim’s never been one to watch silently from the sidelines. But (reportedly) shouting ‘F*****g have that, you flashy Czech f***,’ to Berdych in the semi-final was perhaps a little too expressive for daytime TV audiences.
Kim’s dad, tennis coach and TV pundit Nigel Sears, also commented on his daughter’s cursing. ‘Disgraceful behaviour!’ he joked in a post-match interview on Eurosport. ‘She’s always had a potty mouth. Gets it from her mother of course!’
‘Quite amazing how much has been made of this – but it’s pretty emotional in that box when you’re close to someone… and it was a feisty match.’
