Brisbane finalist Andy Murray is backing off his promise from last month that he’ll stop swearing. Earlier this week the Scot said he’ll try to improve his potty mouth on-court language, but he won’t guarantee it.
“Obviously I don’t mean to do it,” Murray said. “I don’t want to do it. Sometimes you get frustrated and you do. Obviously I will try to stop. I didn’t make any promises or guarantees that I was going to. Then it came out that I’ve said this year I will stop swearing. What I also said was that a lot of players swear on the court and a lot of people say a lot worse things than I say on the court in other languages. It doesn’t get picked up on the same.
“Where I would obviously love to stop doing it, I try not to, I can’t guarantee it.”
Murray added that he hasn’t really heard the complaints about the issue, but he is wary of the numerous mics on the Rod Laver court. So this could become more of a topic in Melbourne.
Earlier today Murray earned a trip to the final when Kei Nishikori retired down 64, 20 with a left knee injury in the semis. Murray will meet first-time ATP finalist Grigor Dimitrov Sunday in the Brisbane title match. The Bulgarian beat Marcos Baghdatis in the a third set tiebreak.
