In a video recorded to launch her appearance on Cameo, Judy, 62, said: ‘Hi, I’m Judy Murray and I’ve just joined Cameo.
‘If you’re looking for a shout-out for a special occasion or a special person or even if you want a tennis tip or even better a dancing tip let me know.’
In a clip sent to one fan called Rachel, she says: ‘Hello Rachel, sorry for crashing your 21st birthday but someone insisted that I made a little video for you.
‘I’m also told that you’re training to be a physio so I’m secretly hoping that you’re going to be a sports physio because we need a lot more women in the sporting workforce.’
She added: ‘Hope you have a great day and I hope it’s full of fun and food and fizz of course.’

Ms Murray offers to provide a video message within 24 hours of getting a request.
The tennis coach appeared on Strictly in 2014 and survived for eight weeks despite admitting she was the ‘worst dancer’ on the show.
She was described by judge Craig Revel Horwood as having the ‘rhythm of a shop mannequin’.
The Cameo service was launched six years ago as a means of facilitating contact between fans and actors, athletes and other celebrities, who respond to requests for birthday, congratulatory and other video messages.
Last year Scots actor Brian Cox joined the site and is charging fans to tell them to ‘F**k off’ in the style of his Logan Roy character from Succession.
The Dundee-born star, 75, is also offering birthday messages and ‘pep talks’ to budding actors on the site.
