That's Just How Muzz Rolls
How did Andy Murray get himself ready for yet another huge event this summer? The Mail’s Mike Dickson has the scoop.
MURRAY SET FOR CILIC TEST...BUT THE SECRET OF ANDY’S SUCCESS? A LADY WITH LARGE HANDS!
“When he first landed here ahead of the U.S. Open,” Dickson writes of Murray, “he took the unusual step of ditching everyone and spending several days as a relative hermit in the big city.”
Murray says that when he got to New York he “took three days off and just spent time on my own. I felt I needed some time away from the others because otherwise it can get a bit sterile."
What did Muzz do in the Big Apple? Museums, art flicks, discos, maybe a trek to Brooklyn? "I just did things like watch a lot of football on television and got my own breakfast, lunch, and dinner from the local Whole Foods store," the resourceful Murray said. "I had a massage in the hotel spa from a big lady with large hands. It was nice to relax and be on my own for a bit.”
Murray hasn’t been hanging out around the courts as much these days, something the Mail credits to the influence of Ivan Lendl, who was “always keen on outside diversions.”
Or, perhaps, Murray just needed a few days away from the Terminator himself?
