Default Andy Murray: "I've never felt like putting my foot through something, but it happens"

He doesn't exactly defend Nalbandian for what he did, but he does criticize Queens for allowing an on-court interview afterwards:

Quote:

Nalbandian, who was still clearly upset, made criticisms of the Association of Tennis Professionals in his interview, which did not help his cause.

"They should have taken him off the court and protected him," Murray said. "He ended up saying things that he probably didn't mean to say, but you've got to protect the players. He was very angry. You could see clearly that he was still arguing. He was shaking his head when he was walking up [to the microphone] and as soon as he said 'but' they should have taken the microphone away.

"In any other sport, if someone flips out or snaps, you don't stick a microphone in their face and try and get them to speak. You're going to say something you don't really mean or regret. I think he made a mistake, but he shouldn't have been allowed to talk. I think they should have taken him off the court."

Murray, who was talking after playing an exhibition match at The Boodles event at Stoke Park in Buckinghamshire, was asked if he could imagine being that angry before on court.

"I've never felt like putting my foot through something, but it happens," Murray said. "He's been on the tour a long time. He just got very angry and got put in a very difficult situation when he was still clearly very upset. But I personally wouldn't do that. Well, I hope I wouldn't do it."

Very nice by Andy. And I loved the part where he added "Well, I hope I wouldn't do it." Because Andy has a temper also!

Clever words from Murray, and honest, but I'm not surprised he's a very honest guy.

When have they all supported him? The silence from the top players has been deafening in fact. The most I've seen is Cilic saying it doesn't need to be dealt with by the police and this is hardly a resounding endorsement from Murray.

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/ten...bag/index.html
"It's interesting to note the players' response. Not much support from the rest of the association. Had this been, say, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or Andy Murray or John Isner -- actually, why name names? any of a hundred other players -- there would be a much greater effort to spin this as a regrettable and uncharacteristic lapse that occurred -- all together, everyone -- in "the heat of battle." * Tim Henman whacks a ballgirl at Wimbledon, gets disqualified and rarely gets grief for it. Why? Because on balance, he's a good guy. In this case, it's a sour guy who got what he deserved. Here's hoping the ATP steps up and issues a ban."

And obviously the law shares this view as time-wasting is treated as a far more heinous crime than assault.

Kevin Anderson supports, well he thinks the loss of points and prize money is enough punishment.

That's not supporting Nalbandian, that's just taking the view it doesn't need to be dealt with by the police.
