Andy Murray reveals surprise at Queen's letter after win

Friday June 26, 2009

He doesn't usually bother opening fan mail during a tournament, but Andy Murray made an exception for a letter from the Queen.

"That (letter), someone from the All England Club came and gave it to me at the end of one of my practices. So obviously I was going to open it," says the Scottish tennis ace. "It's surprising, you don't get that every day."

Andy told of the special message - in which the monarch congratulated him for winning at Queen's and wished him luck for Wimbledon – after smashing through to the third round of the championship.

The Dunblane-raised sportsman beat Latvian player Ernests Gulbis on Thursday, earning a standing ovation from the Centre Court crowd.
