Andy Murray has already had quite a Wimbledon. On the eve of his much-anticipated opening of the 2014 Wimbledon Championships, the Scottish favorite made a detour on his way to the AELTC on Sunday.

Apparently en route to practice Murray stopped the car to rescue a dog from oncoming traffic.

“I saw a dog running loose along the road and stopped to try to help,” Murray explained to the BBC. “After a bit of a struggle, I managed to get it in the back seat of my car, rang the number on the tag and eventually got the dog back to its owner, safe and sound. Quite what anybody in the passing cars made of it all, I’ve no idea!

“Hopefully there won’t be any dogs in distress when I head back to the All England Club on Monday, a little earlier than I’m used to.”

On this Monday, Murray made quick and efficient work of David Goffin taking out the Belgian in straight sets for his 8th straight win at Wimbledon. Murray will now meet former U.S. collegian Blaz Rola on Wednesday.

“To come to the court and get that reception… was very nice,” said Murray. “I think the crowd was pretty much full from the start. It was great. [I] enjoyed it for the walk to the chair. Then, when I sat down, it was time to get on with business. I was probably a bit more nervous yesterday than I was today.”
