Murray makes young fan's wish come true

An eight-year-old tennis fan has been given the chance to play against his idol Andy Murray.

Dylan Martin-Harley met the Wimbledon champion at Queen's Club thanks to Make-A-Wish Foundation UK, a charity which grants wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions.

Dylan, from Windsor, was diagnosed with a brain tumour in April 2013 and underwent surgery the day after his diagnosis. He lost the sight in his left eye and was left with tunnel vision in his right.

Make-A-Wish arranged for Dylan to travel to west London with his family in a limousine. When they arrived at Queen's Club they were greeted by Murray's Davis Cup team-mate Ross Hutchins, before Dylan took to the court with his hero.

Murray said: "I have met a few Make-A-Wish children over the years and I always find it an inspiring experience. It was great to meet Dylan and his family. "
