Andy Murray yet again joined in with April fools day today, by suggesting he was skipping the entire clay court season to prepare for Wimbledon.
The world number four isn’t a stranger to April fools as last year he announced his new coach would be his friend, Ross Hutchins. Though Andy can sometimes be seen as “moody” and “grumpy” on court, these times are such a good reminder that he is quite a hilarious personality off court and is considered quite a joker among his fellow players on the ATP Tour.
Andy had this to say at his Announcement, “I spoke with Ivan and it just makes so much sense. At the French, I was looking at a semi at best, especially with Rafa around, so it’s down to me to get a head start on Nole and the others for my home grand slam. Right now, Wimbledon is my number one goal.”
While some have taken this announcement seriously, I think its good time to embrace the lighter side of Andy ahead of his very serious match against the world number one Novak Djokovic, in the Miami final tonight. Andy won their last meeting, in Dubai where the conditions are quite similar to that of Miami, I’m hoping for Murray’s first Masters title of the year, reliving his success in 2009.
