‘It’s hilarious. It happens three or four times a match. I don’t find it amusing.’
Andy Murray is not amused that some fans think it a gag to start a ‘Come on, Tim’ chorus whenever he plays at Wimbledon—an obvious reference to his predecessor Tim Henman, who made four Wimbledon semis without making a single final.
What he really meant:
“Aw, come on, chaps. Tim’s retired, besides he never got to a Slam final. I have three appearances.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“Now, you know why I grew a beard this year. I was hoping they wouldn’t recognise me and leave me alone.”
“You do know, it’s not called ‘Henman Hill’ anymore.’Murray Mound’, it is!”
