Sir Andy’s not dull he’s droll, says his mother
Andy Murray’s sense of humour is the most misunderstood thing about him, according to his mother.
Judy Murray has claimed the tennis ace is unfairly labelled dull and boring because of his dry Scottish sense of humour.
The mother of the double Wimbledon champion said he is hilarious and sometimes the public just do not get him.
Murray, 31, has returned to action at the Citi Open in Washington after recovering from a hip injury.
Judy, 58, said: “Andy has a very dry Scottish sense of humour.
“People who understand realise that he is very droll and he’s actually very funny.
“But those who don’t understand think he is like really boring and dull. I never really get that.
“I would say his sense of humour is the thing that gets misunderstood the most.”
Speaking to Racquet magazine, Judy also told how her new tennis and golf centre near Dunblane will feature a café decked out with memorabilia from Sir Andy and brother Jamie’s tennis career and the pair will be recruited to help out there when they retire.
It will be based on the Hard Rock café franchise, which features music memorabilia, and she hopes it will attract more visitors to the complex, which is due to open in summer 2020. The £37 million Park of Keir development was approved by the Scottish Government last August.
Andy Murray’s sense of humour is “misunderstood”.
