Andy Murray’s Twitter Commentary at ATP World Tour Finals.

UK’s own Andy Murray is very much missed at this week’s ATP World Tour Finals. But the Wimbledon champion made his presence felt on Twitter during opening day at the O2 Arena.

Likely watching the matches from home, or perhaps where he is undergoing rehab from recent back surgery, Murray offered this early insight on Sky Sports TV commentator Mark Petchey.


Murray went silent during the Tomas Berdych versus Stanislas Wawrinka match in the afternoon. Perhaps he had a lunch date? In any event, Murray made his thoughts known soon enough during the lead up to the Juan Martin Del Potro versus Richard Gasquet evening match. With Del Potro holding a 5-1 head to head against the Frenchman, most took the view that the Argentine was the clear favorite.

Murray took exception to this.

Great exception.

Likely in response to some fans’ response to his earlier comments, Murray did some clarifying. Especially after Gasquet blew a 5-3 lead but eventually took the first set 7-6(4).

Often found of posting nature pictures, Murray retweeted this one. Perhaps it was an unintentional commentary on the players themselves with Del Potro (a large man himself) being the rather imposing lion and Gasquet being the tiny cub at the lion’s feet trying to catch up to him. (By now, Del Potro had won the second set 6-3)

Deep into a third set, Murray still had not forgiven those early experts who were so sure of themselves.

Despite Murray and his hashtags of “allez” support for Gasquet, it was Del Potro who prevailed 6-7(4), 6-3, 7-5.

Murray soon offered this summation of the evening’s proceedings.
