Andy Murray’s press conference in Shanghai today, after defeating Stan Wawrinka, was very insightful into his intelligent persona. Enjoy.
Q. Which poets are big on your list then?
ANDY MURRAY: I mean, it was actually last week I was reading a bit of Kipling, because they obviously have it just before you go out on the court at Wimbledon. When I read stuff, I find that, I don’t know, I don’t relate to it as much. But when I hear someone else saying it… I would rather watch a movie than read a book. So I was trying to watch some things on YouTube of a few poems.
Q. Very impressive.
ANDY MURRAY: Thank you.
Q. I heard you singing before the press conference. What about singing?
ANDY MURRAY: You heard that? I didn’t realize you could hear that. What did you think? How was it? Was it good, the singing?
Q. Maybe you can sing louder.
ANDY MURRAY: Not now, but maybe another time I’ll do that.
Q. What kind of music do you like?
ANDY MURRAY: Honestly, literally everything. There’s not one type of music I don’t really listen to. I listen to everything.
