Murray finds wedding ring after Querrey wins French Open quarterfinal

British tennis star Andy Murray is “back in the good books” after he found his wedding ring that went missing after he came off the court after his quarter-final loss to Sam Querrey at the French Open.

The 31-year-old posted the Instagram video showing him looking in his locker room, before he found the ring in his bag.

The player managed to keep the track of the ring even after Querrey snagged it in the back of his leg at Roland Garros last Friday.

“That ring was under the bag. I woke up this morning and it had gone,” the former Wimbledon champion said.

He posted a video on Instagram saying, “I have found my ring. Had it there for 20 minutes last night so I thought I would look for it.”

The tennis star who played one game in 2017 before being sidelined with a hip injury said he had been “itching” to give the ring back.

Meanwhile, Querrey has gotten even closer to the title after his opponent Gilles Muller retired from the French Open quarter-final match with the American trailing by a 3-0 margin.

Querrey already has two victories at Roland Garros, including the 2016 final, when he defeated his top rival Novak Djokovic in a thrilling five-set thriller.

Querrey broke serve at the start of the third set on Monday, then held his own serve in the next game to win 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 7-6 (7-5).

‘He was the guy I wanted to play’

In the next round Querrey will face either No. 2 seed Rafael Nadal or No. 17 Lucas Pouille.

The win also sends Querrey into the U.S. Open where he said he will do all he can to stop Serbian tennis icon and three-time winner Novak Djokovic.

“I mean I think he’s probably the best player ever,” Querrey said. “You can draw from any match of his career or whatever that he plays, just everything he does. I think I’m going to need to play a little bit better than I have been to beat him. He’s probably going to find a way to win as well. It’s going to be one of those hard-fought matches that I feel like if I can just go out there and play to my potential and try to be as aggressive as I can then I think I’ll be in a good spot.”
