Murray on Twitter & Facebook

I never got that far down  Whistle I recognized Andy's hand!! I would know that hand anywhere!
Ye same here. Think the adidas armband gave it away. Then saw the slogan on the t-shirt (can just about make out "sweat is weakness leaving the body" which confirmed it anyway.

I never even knew about the birthmark. I think I've heard it referenced a couple of times but never paid any attention.

Monaco looks completely unrecognisable with the short hair. Looks a lot cooler though. His coach/trainer looks like Fernando Alonso (F1 driver).

Also saw some mention of Andy and Monaco being friends at Roland Garros I think it was. It was what prompted to me to start the thread about Andy's friends on the tour, as there a few that aren't all that well known (Ferrer is another one that Andy often trains with, as well as Stan Wawrinka and Jarkko Nieminen).

Not sure where best to put this.

Have noticed Rhyne Williams a few months back, and watched his match against Jamie Baker a month or so ago with interest (Jamie won in 3). He's a fairly young American player with lots of talent but a bit too emotional (must have smashed three racquets in that match alone). If he can get grips on his emotions and control himself he could be a decent player in future.

Anyway, Williams qualified for the USO on Friday and I noticed a quick Q&A with him on the ATP site. Was just having a glance when I noticed this:

Funniest Players Encountered: “Marinko Matosevic – pretty goofy guy. I think Andy Murray is a great guy and funny guy as well. Dry humour [smiles]."

Interesting, given the perception of Murray from the wider, non-tennis population. Interesting that someone like this guy who know - has he met Andy personally or is this based on interviews and the such? (Rhetorical question, just thinking aloud).

Tweeting makes him a twit - so I hope he has stopped.

Elly was perhaps a little harsh but I agree with the point she's making - Twitter didn't do Murray's image any favours.

The shitty part about being a tennis player is you have to be 'on the job' 24/7 apparently.

**** 'image'. Let him have his life off the court.

I have noted previously that for some reason his game improves when he is in Twitter blackout mode.

What is the reason behind that???
Maybe Ivan Lendl...

I think he just doesn't really like it, pretty sure he said Lendl had nothing to do with it.

He stopped using Twitter before Lendl arrived, I think Rory McIlroy suggested that he stop until he'd won a Slam. Not sure why, perhaps it's just a way of pressure being more directly heaped on him so best to avoid it.

Andy has more things on his mind than trying to be funny on Twitter - he's a tennis player, glad he stopped using it even though I would love if he Tweeted every waking minute.

Just wondering though, who posts on his official Facebook then? It's always in first person and personal photos.

E.g. Morning Smile just finished on set at CBS, headed to Today show. Very busy day ahead, but I want to thank all of you for your support and belief in me. Didn't sleep very much last night!
