Murray will not watch mom on “Dancing with the Stars”

Andy Murray isn't one for reality TV - even if his mother is starring on it.

British Fed Cup captain Judy Murray is set to compete this season on the BBC's "Strictly Come Dancing," the show that inspired "Dancing with the Stars" in the U.S.

"If it makes her happy, then I will support her. I'm not really into those shows, but she loves it," her two-time major champion son said Saturday as he prepared for the U.S. Open.

"I mean, she watches it all of the time, talks about it all the time," he added with a grin.

Not that he plans to tune in.

"Probably not, no," Murray conceded.

His mother must be an avid dancer, right?

"I don't believe I have ever seen her dance, to be honest," Murray said. "It will be interesting."

What Murray is a fan of is the NBA, and with an offseason home in Miami, he has Heat season tickets. The Scot didn't appreciate the implication that he might give them up now that LeBron James has left town.

"We don't do that," Murray shot back. "In the U.K., you don't change teams when someone leaves."

Murray took a day off from practicing Friday for a busy slate of spectator sports. He followed Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy at The Barclays in New Jersey, then attended the USA Basketball exhibition at Madison Square Garden at night. It was the first time he'd observed professional golf live.

"It's like pretty much any sport," Murray said. "When you watch them up close, it's impressive."
