When players arrive to the controlled environment in New York ahead of the Western & Southern Open and the US Open, they immediately take a COVID-19 test before being quarantined in their room to await the results, which typically take around 24 hours.
Former World No. 1 Andy Murray is keeping busy during that time, taking questions from fans on Instagram. Murray reveals that he admires both Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. But if he had to choose one, the Swiss would be his pick.
Find out more about that choice and see some of Murray’s other responses below.
Which ATP player would you like to coach and why?
Roger Federer, because I would learn a lot and it would be interesting to talk tennis with him, watch him train and he would win a lot. 👍
Most underrated player on Tour?
Good question… Roberto Bautista Agut has been in the Top 20 for a long time it feels like!
Does your hip set off metal detectors at airports?
Every time 😂. Embarrassing when they ask me what it is I’ve got in my pocket.
Favourite shot you’d like to steal from another player?
The John Isner serve and it’s not even close.
Based on your Madrid VR commentary, please say you’ll be in the booth post career.
I have a horrendous voice for TV. 😴😴😴😴
Should you brush your teeth before or after breakfast?
After surely, no? Some fruit and drinks taste horrendous after brushing teeth.
Will you ever grow your hair long again? The Muzzafam miss the big hair look?
If I could I would… my hair is finished… hair transplant the next step. 😂
Who’s your favourite player in the Top 10 right now and why?
Always loved watching Rafael Nadal, great energy… great attitude… great player. Also Gael Monfils, amazing what he can do and always makes me smile. Nick Kyrgios too when he’s focussed.
