Thanks Bev, good memories!! Yep, can remember Sean Connery being interviewed after that match and hailing Andy as a super young talent. Also, in Andy's book, he speaks about receiving a phone call from Sean Connery and how amazed he was that a superstar like Sir Sean would take time to speak to him.
Can't wait for tommorrow's match, got a day off so will be able to watch, hoping Mr Magic turns up fully rested, fit and well and firing on all cylinders.
He became a Murray fan when he watched him play David Nalbandian in his Wimbledon Centre court debut in 2005.
Sean adds: “I was with Micheline and I said he was definitely one to watch.
“He was just 18 at the time and so talented.
“Since then he has transformed himself into a powerful, positive and rather marvellous athlete.
“He has a great physical presence. Nobody can beat him when he’s on song.
“But it’s very important to be able to contain yourself on court.
“He’s got much better at external control but he musn’t let up.
“I learned back in my Navy days that ‘bulls**t baffles brains’.
“It’s a form of acting. If you put a folder of papers under your arm, walk smartly and salute to the officer nobody will stop you. It’s all about looking the part.”
Sean offers Andy another acting tip — keep your mouth shut!
He says: “I’ve noticed that he breathes through his mouth, which dries up the throat.
“That’s a bad thing as any actor will tell you.
“It drains your energy and makes you uncomfortable.”
For decades he’s been the most famous Scot in the world.
Now Sir Sean welcomes the competition.
Murray is just one of the globally successful Scots he admires so much.

It'll have to be a guesstimate for me to get up and watch
