Andy Murray had some choice words for Lukas Rosol during their quarter-final match up in Munich today.
Murray, who would go on to win both this match and his semi-final vs Roberto Bautista Agut just a few hours later, was annoyed with his Czech opponent for bumping into him during a changeover.
After complaining to the umpire, Murray decided to voice his frustrations.
“No one likes you on the tour,” said the world no.3. “Everyone hates you.”
Rosol shrugged off the insult, but went on to lose the match 4-6 6-3 6-2.
In press after the match, Murray explained that he shouldn’t have said what he said but that “dad taught me to stick up for myself when threatened, not get dictated to.”
Murray will face home favourite Philipp Kohlschreiber in the final, the Brit’s first ATP final on red clay.
[…] Murray won the match 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, with Rosol receiving his just desserts by the look of it. Murray then went on to beat Roberto Bautista Agut later that day, due to a backed-up, weather-impacted schedule, and will play Philipp Kohlschreiber in the final. You can see what the two-time Grand Slam champion told members of the press about the incidents after the match over at The Changeover. […]
Rosol is pretty entertaining to watch because he appears very competitive during his matches, but I can understand how murray would’ve been unhappy
Well said Andy, piggo deserved it.
