Murray's interview takes a comical turn

Monday October 17th, 2011

This Andy Murray Q&A with a Chinese reporter starts out fairly straightforward, with a few questions that are actually tennis-related (forehand vs. backhand, grass vs. hardcourts, New York vs. London, etc.). Then it gets progressively funnier when Murray finally has to make some hard decisions:

• Ana Ivanovic vs. Caroline Wozniacki: "Ivanovic. My girlfriend's father coaches her. Well, that's not the only reason..."

• Rafael Nadal vs. Novak Djokovic: "I'll say Rafa. I've known both of them since I was young, but I'll take Rafa."

• Real Madrid vs. Barcelona: "My two best friends support Barcelona and they're very annoying with the way they talk about them. So I like Real Madrid right now."

• Adele vs. Lady Gaga: "Lady Gaga. ... She's a pretty strange cat."

Check out the rest of his surprising answers and stay tuned to the end for a rare hearty laugh from Murray:
