Andy's wit and wisdom

Quote

Andy has long been recognised as possessing a subtle and sometimes wicked sense of humour, once memorably described as so dry at times it constituted a fire hazard. Time we started recording some of these gems. Prompted to start this thread by his marvellous response to the journo who asked if he'd slept with his trophy ( Slam Winners often do, as they're usually in hotel rooms). Andy of course, was at home.   
His quickfire response: " What? No. Who knows, tonight it might get lucky"  I'll be racking my brains for other gems to record, and watching out for new ones.

From a recent press conference.  ( I paraphrase)
 Q " Andy, how would you describe the pressure you're under to do well here?"
Andy ( deadpan)  " What do you want, words, grading , Stats?"
 Q (Oblivious) " Grading " 
Andy ( still deadpanning) Seven or eight out of ten, I guess

 Ivan Lendl, tells some of the dirtiest jokes in tennis, and has been described as “an equal opportunities offender”, whose locker-room gags were said by John McEnroe to be “dubious at best”. However, Lendl revealed: “Andy’s sense of humour is almost as sick as mine.”

Great thread!

"I'm trying my tits off" always makes me laugh - from RG last year I think.

I remember the match but have checked the details.

Rotterdam 2009

Nadal v Murray Final

Murray wins first set 6-3 but is broken early in the second. Nadal then injures his knee and the trainer is called in. Because of the injury he cannot win a game on serve but still manages to break Andy on his and win the second set 6-4. The third set Murray wins 6-0.

At the presentation Nadal does not mention his injury and says  "I want to congratulate Andy for this tournament, he started the year very well."

Andy's response "Sorry to Rafa I know he hurt his leg at the start of the second set. It shows how good a player he is - he was still managing to beat me on one leg."

At a press conference on the eve of the 2012 Wimbledon final, Andy was asked by a foreign reporter if Fred Perry would be looking over him during the match.  A seriously deadpan Andy replied in a deliciously husky drawl  'But he's dead, isn't he?'  The reporter explained it might be by way of a benediction.  Andy's face was a picture of quizzical and polite concentration as he drily replied 'Yeah... well... I hope so...'  All this while the UK hacks were laughing their heads off,

On a slightly different note, Andy was playing Matosevic in the second round at Queen's a few weeks ago,  Andy was on fire, it was cold and windy, and the Australian was being completely outclassed.  Andy was running him ragged, side to side, top to bottom and inside out.  He finally yelled out at the top of his voice and in heartfelt despair 'Why the f@@@ did I bother?'  The camera went instantly to Kim and Leon Smith who were both laughing, not unkindly, but they knew it had come from the heart.
