Tennis ace Andy Murray is dejected that his tactical notes were revealed on television during his win over Grigor Dimitrov in the final of the 2016 China Open in Beijing on Sunday. The team management of the world number two have reportedly complained about the incident to the ATP tour authorities.
A camera had zoomed into an A4 sheet that Murray was reading at a change of ends during his match against Dimitrov. There were handwritten notes on the sheet, which included technical instructions like "don't let him dictate on his forehand" and basic pointers like "stay calm and breathe".
This incident has left the Scot furious with his mother Judy Murray taking to Twitter to call the incident "disrespectful" and an "invasion of privacy".
"I don't like when they go into my bag to look at it because they're personal notes. I try to keep them covered because I want to keep them for me. It's not for everyone else to see, otherwise I'd stick them up on the umpire's chair so everyone else could see it", Murray said, as quoted by Daily Mail.
This is not the first time that such an incident has happened with Murray, as his personal notes was leaked earlier as well. A Dutch journalist had previously managed to obtain a similar sheet and posted a picture of it online.
The sheet contained similar instructions to the one that was zoomed in on at Beijing much to the annoyance of the 29-year-old. The Great Britain tennis star is currently in Shanghai where he will take part in the 2016 Shanghai Masters and comes into this tournament with 8,685 points, which is 1,555 points behind table leader and world number one Novak Djokovic.
