Murray has a cheeky pop at Federer

Might as well keep this little controversy alive by posting Murray's tongue-in-cheek response to Federer.

Murray was interviewed about his thoughts on the draw. At one point the reporter asked Murray who he would make the favourite for the Australian Open if he was a bookmaker.

He replied: "Well, I think Federer wants to be favourite, so I'd probably give it to him" (laughing).

Here's the link to the interview.

Re: Murray has a cheeky pop at Federer

This sort of comment was the only way for Murray to cure himself of the full body rash that Federer gave him when he questioned Murray's favouritism... great fight back...

Re: Murray has a cheeky pop at Federer

I read it this morning already. And loved it. Fed deserved to be confronted with his constant 'subtle' comments like this.

There's an audio clip on the link I posted. He's clearly laughing as he says it.

Re: Murray has a cheeky pop at Federer

How can it be arrogant you moron, Federer is the one putting down Murray and Djokovic for no particular reason, he is the arrogant prick, Murray just says he wants to be favorite, so whats wrong with that, based on his comments he must, just telling the truth and plus he was just having a joke based on his tone but Federer was not

Re: Murray has a cheeky pop at Federer

I'm loving that response!!! It's so typical of Andy Murray's tongue-in-cheek Scottish wit. I'm loving it. Well done for not rising to the bait Andy

Re: Murray has a cheeky pop at Federer

Nice comeback. Pretty cocky for someone that hasnt won any slams yet, but thats to be expected from him.

It's not because he doesn't have any Slams yet that he cannot respond to the comments Fed made about him.

Re: Murray has a cheeky pop at Federer

But I thought players were supposed to stick to their game and NEVER mention other players in interview.

I hope this doesn't distract Murray too much and prevent him from winning his first slam.
