Tennis Player Andy Murray Rescues Dog On Way to Wimbledon

Andy-Murray-20367111It's not every day you see a tennis star chasing a dog down the middle of a busy road. And you especially wouldn't expect to see that during the Wimbledon tournament.

But that's exactly what happened when Scottish tennis player Andy Murray spotted a loose dog heading towards oncoming traffic while heading to practice on Sunday. A dog owner himself, Murray said he stopped traffic and was able to lure the lost dog into his car.

Murray drove to a local park and called the number on the dog's ID tag. The owner was incredibly relieved to have her dog returned to her, and Murray's mother (who was also present at the time) said she wasn't sure if she was more surprised to see her dog or to see Andy.

It seems Murray's good deed did not go unpunished, as he later won the first round of Wimbledon.
