Murray is not one bit amused by Wimbledon crowd's Henman taunts
The sulky Scot just wants to be loved. It’s classic Freud.

ANDY MURRAY HAS shown more of that legendary wit and charm that has made him such a hit on the after dinner-speaking circuit by having a pop at the Wimbledon crowd.

The Scot says that he and his entourage have started laying out bets over when the first cry of ‘Come on Tim!’ will take place during his matches.

Tim Henman, a man made to look like George Clooney in comparison with the recalcitrant Murray, retired in 2007 but remains in the affections of the SW19 crowd despite never having been that good at tennis.

The far more talented, but less genial, Murray wants it all to stop now or he’ll take all of his toys and go home. Just watch him.

“We were talking about it before my first match and asking how long it would be before the first ‘Come on Tim,’” he added.

“I said within the first game. It came four minutes in. We were going to have a bet and everyone gave a minute when it would be said.

“I just said it would be inside the first game. It is classic that one. It is hilarious. It happens every match, three or four times. I do not find it particularly amusing.”

He won’t like this either…
