    If You Have A Beautiful Girlfriend You Should Never Be Sad, Twitter Says

    During the Wimbledon finals today, Twitter discovered Kim Sears, Andy Murray's girlfriend. And with that, they also lost all of their sympathy for the defeated Brit.

    According to English paper The Telegraph, Sears does paintings of her pets and maintains a Twitter account for border terrier Maggie May.

    During today's Wimbledon final, Twitter discovered Sears in a big way. Mixed among the usual lewd considerations of beautiful women that Twitter tends to produce, there was another common theme: with a girlfriend like this, Andy Murray doesn't have the right to be sad, even though he just lost his fourth major final and missed his chance to become the first British Wimbledon champion since 1936.

    Unfortunately, some people also used it as a chance to take a dig at Roger Federer's wife, Miroslava Federer.

    At least one fellow pro athlete weighed in, though: Phoenix Suns draft pick and former UNC standout Kendall Marshall.
