It’s a different kind of love for tennis star Andy Murray.

The 27-year-old recently proposed to his long-time girlfriend Kim Sears, his management company has confirmed.

The former Wimbledon champ and Sears, 26, have been dating since 2005, after meeting at the U.S. Open that same year, reports the BBC. Sears is a regular at many of Murray’s matches, cheering on her beau from the sidelines

Fans started hearing wedding bells earlier this year, when Murray joked about marriage plans during a Wimbledon Q&A session. The Scottish athlete went on Twitter shortly after the comment to shoot down rumors that a wedding was actually happening.

This time thing are officially game, set, match.
