Also on offer was a racket bag of Andy's from the tournament (shown above), complete with his sweat bands, towel and racket, and a chance to join Ms Murray at the start of next year's championship.

The prizes went under the hammer at Edinburgh's annual Lunch With An Old Bag fundraiser.

The money raised will go to The Prince's Trust Scotland which supports disadvantaged young people, particularly those who have struggled at school, been in care or are long-term unemployed.

Ms Murray is a "huge supporter".of the charity, having offered a similar prize towards its fundraising last year.
