Manager Murray Makes Tough Fantasy Football Call
by ATP Staff|
Put on the spot by Roland Garros TV, Andy Murray’s selections for a fantasy football team consisting of tennis players has left him in hot water with some of his colleagues, who were not considered up to standard by the Scot.
Murray, who named himself as centre-forward, came under fire on Twitter by the excluded Jurgen Melzer…
Melzer (@jojomelzer): So @andy_murray I am not good enough to make your soccer team. And no @picomonaco ?? That hurts more than my UsOpen loss 09!!
Murray (@andy_murray): @jojomelzer @picomonaco hahaha I was put on the spot! You can both definitely be on the bench though... sorry
Melzer (@jojomelzer): @andy_murray @picomonaco that's how quickly he forgets who did the dirty work for him in Miami that year.
Rob Koenig (@RobKoenigTennis): @jojomelzer @andy_murray @picomonaco Haha, Brilliant!! Can't believe he got pressured into putting Mauresmo in the team...#yellowcard
Melzer (@jojomelzer): @RobKoenigTennis @andy_murray @picomonaco that only means he never saw @Clijsterskim kick a ball...
