Kim Sears grew up in Barcombe, East Sussex, England and is the daughter of Nigel Sears who was the coach of WTA star Daniel Hantuchova in her prime and is now coaching Ana Invanovic. Kim was born on December 10th, 1987, making her just a few months younger than Andy who was born on May 15th of the same year.
It’s reported that the Andy and Kim began dating back in 2005, with their relationship becoming public in ’06, mainly due to a very public kiss after Andy won the SAP Open in San Jose; the first ATP tour win of his career. In 2009 the pair cut ties. The rumors have it that Kim got fed up with Andy spending all of his spare time on his PlayStation. In an interview prior to the breakup, Andy’s coach Brad Gilbert outted the young tennis star stating that he spent “7 hours a day” playing video games! Good for Andy — living the dream playing video games with a hottie by his side (until she got fed up, but I’m sure many other men out there can relate to this breakup). Anyways, I guess Andy got his act together and chose Kim over his gaming because the breakup was short lived with the couple getting back together early in 2010.
All About Andy
Kim prefers to stay out of the limelight and has said on many occasions that she supports Andy, but has no plans of being a full time girlfriend travelling with Andy to every stop on the tour. She attends some of the larger tournaments, but you shouldn’t expect to see her in photo shoots anytime soon, as she prefers to leave the fame to Andy, while she focuses on her own career in publishing.
