Scottish tennis sensation Andy Murray has employed Greg Rusedski as his new grinning coach, The Spoof can exclusively reveal. Murray requested the services of Rusedski after his former grinning coach quit, citing that getting Murray to smile was 'a lost and hopeless cause'.
Fake Brit Rusedski, who hasn't stop grinning since 1992 as part of Guinness world record attempt, is also relishing the challenge:
Rusedski was guarded when asked what methods he was going to employ in order to get the talented Scot to finally chuckle, but did offer some insight:"I may do my Kermit The Frog impersonation for starters, then I'm considering a Punch And Judy puppet show, and if all else fails, I'll probably just pop in a dvd of my tennis career".
Marks and Spencer last night confirmed that it had signed up British tennis sensation, Andy Murray, to be the new face of their Urchin Chic collection due to be launched next month. A spokesperson exclusively told The Spoof: "Andy will add an edgy, unpredictable dimension. A bit of a challenge, but I'm sure we're up to it."Although unconfirmed, it is believed that Murray returned to Britain just before the US Open in order to receive some essential modelling tips from his stunning girlfriend, Kim Sears, which clinched the deal.It is a move which his trainer, Brad Gilbert, thinks will help his young charge: "I realised Junior was taking my mantra 'winning ugly' too literally. He's no number one in the pretty-boy stakes, but I mean, you know, I have to look at his freaking grim face more than most, and a bit of a makeover would be big props."
