London – British tennis star Andy Murray announced that he will marry girlfriend Kim Sears later this year during a question-and-answer session with fans on Twitter on Wednesday, but later backtracked.

The 26-year-old reigning Wimbledon champion was responding to questions on the micro-blogging website when one fan asked, “When are you getting married?”

Murray replied: “We are getting married just after Wimbledon should be a great day.”

Murray and Sears, daughter of British tennis coach Nigel Sears, have been together since 2005 and she is a regular presence at his matches.

Murray later tweeted that he was joking.

"3 things.. I don't smoke grass, I'm not getting married(yet) and I don't want to kill rafael Nadal.."

The couple have always dodged questions about whether or not they plan to wed and, it seems, that's not about to change. – Sapa-AFP
