why fanciful? Perfectly natural reaction and I'm not the only one who thought so as has been made clear on another thread.
It was certainly an emotional moment for both of them, and they are both emotional people. Andy's voice was breaking up a bit at that point in the interview so we might also say that he was close to tears. After Andy got off court and greeted his team David Law from BBC Radio 5 Live reported this on Twitter:
Murray greets team back stage. Big hug with Amelie Mauresmo. @bbctennis
I don't know if anyone listens to the Tennis Podcast which Law does with Catherine Whittaker but in last night's edition of the podcast Whittaker said that when she interviewed Andy briefly after the match he spoke so eloquently about Amelie and women as coaches that Whittaker almost hugged him - she's usually pretty fair and balanced on the subject of Andy.
