We all know how that Andy Murray hasn’t quite mastered the art of grace under pressure (see; 2010 Australian Open Finals), so let’s better hope he can get a few pointers from his team before stepping out for his second round match against Jarkko Nieminen, to be played on Centre Court. The hometown crowd wants him to take the cake, and for good reason: Andy’s had a decent year so far, with some runs deep into Masters Series tournaments alongside that great performance in Melbourne. Even the Royal Family is hip to it, with Queen Elizabeth II scheduled to watch the Scot play on Thursday (her first time at the tournament since 1977).
Top o’ the Bottom: Murray’s section of the bottom half (shared with Rafa Nadal) has some obstacles in the form of Tsonga (quarters), Querrey (fourth round), and Simon (third round). Check out the bracket here.
It’s in his hands now: adidas put Andy in the Barricade line, which for the Wimbledon iteration is accented with deep (“university”) red piping. Off the court, he gets an adi dassler practice tee and a hoodie from the company’s FIFA World Cup merch. This black “Greatest Moments Makana Hoodie” is an homage to the Makana FA, a South Africa-based league founded by political prisoners.
