We’re having a laugh, says Davydenko of Murray
LONDON: Russia’s Nikolay Davydenko ratcheted up the tension ahead of his Tuesday Wimbledon date with Andy Murray by claiming players make fun of the Briton’s on-court body language.
Murray has come under fire in recent weeks from the likes of Virginia Wade, a former Wimbledlon winner, who called him a “drama queen”, claiming the world number four exaggerated any bumps and bruises he may be feeling.
German veteran Tommy Haas also claimed Murray was overdoing the effects of injuries.
“We just laugh sometimes,” Davydenko told The Sun on Tuesday.
“Sometimes he walks on court, he looks tired, like he doesn’t want to run anymore and then he runs like an animal. He has done that all his career.
“He may have a pain somewhere but if you ask any player they will all say they have pains here and there. Nobody says they are perfect. It’s just not possible.”
