Andy Murray Goes ‘Bollocks’
What he said:
“I have been to watch a lot of football matches and you say a lot worse than that and you don’t get yellow card."
Andy Murray compares the code violation he received in his match against Tomas Berdych at the Paris Masters to a yellow card.
Murray was complaining about the change in balls. Berdych felt the balls were too soft and called for fresh ones.
Tomas decided that the balls were too soft—which they weren’t. The umpire gave him three brand new balls to serve with … I wasn’t aware that they were just changing three brand new balls. Then that totally changed the way the ball plays and the court plays. That was what happened. I just asked, ‘Is it not normal to let the opponent also see the balls?
On the warning he received, the Scot added:
"Actually I said bollocks to the chair umpire and that got me a warning.”
What he really meant:
“They don’t change balls either and they have substitutes.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“What a soccer!”
