Andy Mur­ray: Ho­tel maid stalked me around Europe af­ter stroking arm as I slept

Malta Independent - - WORLD -

Andy Mur­ray has claimed that a ho­tel maid started stalk­ing him af­ter ap­pear­ing at his bed­side and stroking his arm.

The dou­ble Wim­ble­don cham­pion, 29, had been play­ing a tour event and had gone to bed plac­ing a “do not dis­turb” sign on the door.

How­ever, he said that early the next morn­ing he woke up to find the maid at his bed­side, look­ing at him and stroking his arm.

The maid was then seen again at a num­ber of other ho­tels Mur­ray was stay­ing in as he com­peted round Europe, he claimed.

Mur­ray said: “At one of the tour­na­ments that I played, there was a maid in the ho­tel.

“I had the do not dis­turb sign up on the door and she came in and sat on my bed and started stroking my arm at about seven in the morn­ing when I was still sleep­ing.

“She then turned up at a cou­ple more tour­na­ments in the ho­tels that I was play­ing at in Rot­ter­dam and Barcelona.

“I don’t know if that is a fan thing, but that was a bit ex­treme.2016: watch

The two-time Olympic gold medal­list also dis­closed that he bought a Range Rover even though he had yet to pass his driv­ing test.

Mur­ray told the Scots­man: “My apart­ment that I bought in Lon­don would be the big­gest thing I ever bought, but I bought a Range Rover which I couldn’t ac­tu­ally drive be­cause I didn’t pass my driv­ing test un­til I was 22. But my girl­friend drove it for me and for her­self.”

When asked who he thought the most gor­geous per­son in the world was, Mur­ray placed wife Kim as his num­ber one - but said ac­tress Halle Berry would be sec­ond on his list.

He also con­fessed to hat­ing all movies to do with sport and that he is ob­sessed with fan­tasy sports online such as football and basketball.

Mur­ray is cur­rently in Bei­jing for the China Open, where he faced An­dreas Seppi in his open­ing match. He hopes to clinch the No 1 player slot in the com­ing weeks.

He also played a part in Great Bri­tain’s un­suc­cess­ful de­fence of the Davis Cup as the side lost to Ar­gentina in the semi-fi­nals in Glas­gow.
