As Scotland’s brightest (and, let's face it, only) rising tennis star prepares to square off against the white clad Forces of Darkness (Tennis Division), Andy Murray revealed exclusively to The JT that not only will his older brother Jamie be called to the royal blue colours but other family members will also help out.
In an unusual move, Hamish [Andy's dog] will patrol Andy’s side of the court , ready to neutralise kid-on Canuck Rusedski’s ferocious serve, by jumping up, grabbing the ball in mid-air and then charging round the court like a daftie before dropping the ball at Andy’s feet while wagging his tail furiously.
Looking up momentarily from adjusting his iPod, Andy told The JT:
There’s nothing specific in the rules of The Lawn Tennis Association that excludes a well-loved family pet from playing fetch while a game in progress. Not that I’ve actually looked…
The move comes in the week when Andy told the world’s media that he would be supporting England’s soccer team in the up-coming World Cup, before uncrossing his fingers and sniggering.
