This is horrific. Bumped into Murray today who’d just come back from Wimbledon. He’d only gone down to see the Andy Murray match on Centre Court. There he was, minding his own business and getting into the game, when he only gets shot at. Kid you not.
Well shell shocked he was when I saw him:
A massive Murray fan he is too. Even changed his name from Roy in honour of his hero.
“I can’t believe I missed seeing him win. It was only the start of the second set,” said Murray. Thankfully he survived the pot-shot but there were others, apparently, who weren’t so lucky.
So much for the so called ‘gentleman’s game’. Turns out Wimbledon has got so pissed off with our Centre Court dive bombing, it’s hired a marksmen to shoot us down. Unbelievable.
The real shame is the whole dive bombing thing is usually just out-of-towners trying to get on TV. Sadly, they have ruined it for the real tennis fans like Murray. Still, bad behaviour aside, getting the guns out is not on.
In the meantime, Murray has vowed to give Wimbledon the wide berth from now on and is doubly gutted to be missing Andy’s next game on Saturday against Tommy Haas. A game he says “Will be a tough match for Murray.”
I suggested he should go anyway and maybe just watch it on the big screen on the hill? He said he’d rather not go if he couldn’t be on court. Fair enough.
If this is the way things are going, maybe I should get down to inventing some sort of bullet proof vest for pigeons? An armoured jacket perhaps? Food for thought.
