This is from the “Tennis Times” blog.  Andy Murray announced he was thinking of skipping the entire clay curt season to concentrate on Wimbledon.  The April 1 timing of the announcement should have been  clue for his followers.

Though Andy can sometimes be seen as “moody” and “grumpy” on court, these times are such a good reminder that he is quite a hilarious personality off court and is considered quite a joker among his fellow players on the ATP Tour.

Andy had this to say at his Announcement, “I spoke with Ivan and it just makes so much sense. At the French, I was looking at a semi at best, especially with Rafa around, so it’s down to me to get a head start on Nole and the others for my home grand slam. Right now, Wimbledon is my number one goal.”
