Sir Andy’s not dull he’s droll, says his mother

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

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”.
