London: The older brother of British tennis ace Andy Murray has revealed that Murray used to dress up like his idol Andre Agassi during his childhood.
According to British tennis player Jamie Murray, his younger sibling used to wear denim shorts, with pink cycling shorts underneath, in the style of Agassi, and completed the ensemble with a blonde wig bought by their parents, The Sun reports.
Terming Murray as a big fan of Agassi, his brother said that although the private Murray did not like to hog the limelight which the maverick, rockstar and bright orange Donnay racquet-holding Agassi was so fond of, he still liked Agassi`s style.
Citing an incident during which he, Murray and a few other youngsters went for the first time to Wimbledon, Jamie Murray said that he was more interested in watching tennis, while his brother wanted to stand outside the practice courts at Aorangi Park and get as many autographs as he could.
Stating that he hoped that his brother could become a Wimbledon champion this week like Agassi, Jamie Murray further said that it seemed like his brother`s draw has opened up as both Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal lost while Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Marin Cilic pulled out.
Meanwhile, Jamie Murray said that there is already one Wimbledon champion in their family, referring to himself, when he won the mixed doubles with Jelena Jankovic in 2007.
