In writing, please, Mrs Murray!

Can we have it in writing that the awful Murray family won’t spoil the wonderful tennis atmosphere at Eastbourne with their poisonous, ill-mannered and unsporting behaviour?

How we hate those faces contorted with hatred when an opponent has the effrontery to win a point.

How we hate Murray’s gamesmanship, swearing and disturbing need to have mummy always at his side.

And quite honestly, when you see the elegance of Nadal and Federer at work, he’s more of a boorish brat than a top tennis player, isn’t he?
