Murray hits back over Lloyd criticism « on: July 06, 2011, 11:41 PM »

Andy Murray has responded to criticism from former Davis Cup captain David Lloyd over his appearance.

Lloyd, a former doubles player with one career title to his name, suggested that Murray should be more "clean-shaven" on court if he wanted to win a Grand Slam event.

However, the Scot has dismissed the advice and said that Lloyd is "stuck in the 80s" and should get back to "building leisure clubs".

I don't think it makes any difference. Guys like Borg didn't shave for weeks and months until they lost.

He's entitled to whatever his opinion is, but I think he should stick to what he does best and that's building leisure clubs.


I just need to keep working hard and not worry about what all of the ex-British players have got to say about my game because I know more about tennis than them.

Murray was speaking at the opening of tennis courts close to the Braehead venue for the Davis Cup clash with Luxembourg.

Thanks IonaRed, updated the article based on your link.

Feisty.

Variations of the idiom "tidy desk, tidy mind" could be applied to this argument.  Djokovic is immaculate in his appearance.  Nadal is very precise about how he arranges his bag, towels and bottles, etc.  Andy pulls items out of his bag, then stuffs them back in disarray.  His hair isn't "styled" to look the way it does and his patchy face hair isn't exactly designer stubble either.  Surely when he looks in the mirror he sees a "mess".  As much as I like him as a person and appreciate his marvellous tennis, he does, from my view, look scruffy.  Sorry.  No doubt HE feels good about himself.  However, if his hair were cut professionally, clean shaven, head held high, shoulders back, it would radiate a more confident air and perhaps even reflect an edge in his game.  When Borg looked the way he did, it was in an era of hippie types and he didn't really look out of the ordinary.   Just my opinion.

Interesting theory, probably holds some degree of weight.

Looking forward to the Davis Cup and sooooooooo glad it's on Eurosport. Those commentators for Wimbledon did my head in. Liked the comments Andy made about Lloyd, very mature, you tell them Andy!
