Five inspirational quotes

Judy Murray

1. Children learn by example. They are inspired by what they see.

2. Kids don’t want to ‘go to a lesson’ or listen to a biomechanical breakdown of strokes, they want to play games, especially ones that reward them with sweets at the end.

3. Ambition was – and still is – nothing to apologise for.

4. Not for the first time, I realised that where I saw an opportunity for something, other people saw hurdles and complications. I knew it probably wasn’t going to happen unless I got up and did something about it.

5. But, opportunity can be found in everything.
