TENNIS ace Andy Murray should probably be sectioned psychologists have warned after a photograph of his motivational notes was released on Twitter.
The handwritten notes were snapped by a journalist as Murray warmed up for his quarter final clash with Giles Simon at the Rotterdam Open. The Scot lost the match in straight sets.
In the incoherent and often illegible notes, Murray five times refers to a ‘dangleberry goblin’, with the c-, f- and b- word employed 259 times.
The notes also reveal that when Murray has played a particularly bad point he must return to the changing rooms and don a hairshirt or clip a pronged cilice around his upper thigh.
Note 24 in particular has worried psychologists. It reads: ‘”hen dangleberry goblin calls, adopt crouched position with towel over head, bite down on golden amulet and supress urge to kill, kill, kill em’ all. Fuckwarts the lot. Bite and scream till tingling all over. Take towel off head. Drink. Bite banana. Look glum.”
Sports psychologist Sophie Benjamin said: “Andy is a midge’s bawhair away from breaking point.
“He already shows his scorn for the fans by throwing stinky wet sweatbands at them after matches. A few more backhand passing shots narrowly wide and I fear he could set about the crowd with his spare racket.”
