Murray says will taunt rivals to win Wimbledon
London: British tennis star Andy Murray is plotting to win Wimbledon by lobbing abuse at opponents.
On the eve of grand slam first round, Murray revealed that champion boxers had inspired his game plan.
A newspaper quoted the world No 4, as saying: “Boxers say stuff that is outrageous. It gets them in a lot of trouble and people don’t like them for it. They don’t really care though. They’re doing it to get under the skin of their opponent.”
He added: “It’s winding up their opponent to get the opponent just to think about hitting them. If the opponent is thinking about just hitting them, they’ll make mistakes.”
Murray, 24, has been getting tips from Brit boxer David Haye.
The WBA world heavyweight champ, 30, told him to mock opponents but keep a “cool head”.
Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, 48, has also given him advice.
Murray said: “Jose advised me: ‘Just go out and enjoy it. The anger is always going to be there but get on with it.’ ”
