As I said in my view from the stands topic, I did not hear one boo. He said "we both played like women" and 95% of the crowd laughed, the interviewer laughed, Murray laughed and then said "Well it was difficult in windy conditions" or something like that.
"The whole crowd booed" my arse, get a sense of humour I say.

About the juggling, during Carlsen's injury break he did a few juggles of a tennis ball with his feet and head to entertain the crowd and in his interview he said "I usually shank it when I do it in front of a lot of people."

I seem to remember a lot of people in Chile like him... well they did when he was playing Nalbandian anyway. Wink

Doubt it, Andy might actually like all the controversy and attention from something that never was. I'd say he laughed at the reports and didn't mind. (my guess)

His comments, though deemed inappropriate by the New Zealand crowd, were considered to be grounded in fact. Last night James Dolan, the senior communications manager of the Women's Tennis Association said that Murray's comments were "not a big deal" and that, traditionally, there were more breaks of serve in women's tennis than in men's on account of the power with which men serve.

He said: "Andy Murray is a huge talent in Scotland and will be in Britain and on the international scene. I think people need to cut him some slack and lighten up. He's a young guy."

But having read the article it seems that Richard Krajicek also made a comment a few years ago also

Yeah I would say most of the crowd were on his side, and everyone was interested in seeing him in action after hearing so much about him,
