Andy Murray's 'kissing feet' forfeits with his coaches!

Posted By: Staff

London, June 26 (ANI): Britain's No.1 Andy Murray, who moved a step closer to lift the Wimbledon trophy, has revealed that he sometimes plants a smacker on the feet of his coaches.Crushing Latvia's Ernests Gulbis 6-2 7-5 6-3 to roar into the third round, Murray talked about his punishment for losing footie-tennis in practice.

"Before the start of each game we decide what the forfeit's going to be. I'm better than them, so I don't lose as much. When we play for small forfeits I lose the games more, because I don't concentrate as much," The Sun quoted him, as saying.

"It doesn't bother me like when we play for push-ups and you have to kiss the other guy's toes. But if it's stuff like walking around all day with a cricket bat or if I have to get lunch for everyone, I concentrate a bit harder."We play for different stuff every week. But the locker room attendant has given us some cricket pads, cricket helmet and cricket bat, so they are Ashes-themed forfeits, Murray said.

"The thing that's important at these tournaments is to do what you do every other week of the year, not to just change things because it's Wimbledon. We do this all the time," he added.

Murray was happy with his performance and now faces world No.31 Serbian Viktor Troicki. (ANI)
