Andy Murray is used to presenting all eyes on him as that he competes on the ATP Tour. But the former World No. 1 recently swapped roles for SPORTbible, analysing amateur tennis videos. It’s safe to say that he didn’t are expectant of a racquet to be flung over a fence.
Some strong contenders in this….😂😱🙈 https://t.co/yTeisSnemp

“I like that, taking the return nice and early. A bit of doubles here,” Murray said of 1 video, before abruptly bursting into laughter. One of the players missed a sitting volley on top of the internet, and proceeded to chuck his racquet. “Okay, that is a proper helicopter out of the court there and I think well-deserved.”
One of the videos showed a young player competing on a small court, working her way to net to finish the purpose.
“I loved playing short tennis when I was younger. Nice volleys, good footwork. It’s pretty rare you see young kids playing up at the net,” Murray said. “That’s a nice volley to finish with. Love a bit of short tennis and nice to see the youngster up at the net there.”
There were two lefties featured, both players hitting trick shots. ATP Champions Tour star Mansour Bahrami isn’t a lefty, but the videos reminded Murray of him.
“If you’ve not watched any videos of him, I mean, he’s brilliant,” Murray said. “[He’s] so entertaining. Really, great.”
