Andy Murray Admits He’d Like To Dance Like Gael Monfils!

Speaking to the press yesterday at the Sony Open Tennis, Miami resident Andy Murray revealed what he’d like to be better at off the court.

“Singing is not good. Cooking is not good,” Murray said. “Most sports I’m okay at. Basketball is a sport I really like. I’m terrible at. I never played it when I was growing up, but I like it. I watch it a lot, but I’m terrible at basketball.

“I think it would be good to be a really good dancer, like Monfils is a great dancer,” he said. “He dances really well. Yeah, I think dancing would be good.”

If Murray practices hard, might we see him doing this during warm-ups at Wimbledon one day?

Murray opens play tomorrow against 20-year-old Bernard Tomic.

“He obviously played really well at Wimbledon a couple of years ago,” Murray said of the Australian. “That was his best slam. He’s always performed well in Australia. I’ll see obviously when I play against him. I haven’t seen him play that much outside of Australia the last year or so. But, yeah, he’s a very, very talented player. He makes it tough for everyone. He’s got a very unorthodox game style.”

Murray won the Miami title in 2009 and was a runner-up last year to Djokovic.

jane Says:

That video makes me miss La Monf. He is a good dancer. Last time Andy played Tomic, he beat him easily; I expect similar this time. Good luck!

Humble Rafa Says:

It doesn’t take a lot to impress you folks. You haven’t seen real dancing.

Alok Says:

Aza has withdrawn from Miami due to her ankle injury from IW. LL lauren Davis, US, has replaced Aza in the draw. She’s indeed very lucky to have such a nice draw. Hope she goes deep, but not very likely, since she is a LL, but she could end up being another JJ.

bada bing Says:

Some say if a man is a good dancer it shows how good he is in the sack. I’d say we would have to evaluate Gael and Novak. :-O

jane Says:

Novak is definitely a good dancer bada bing. ;)

Wog boy Says:

Does “sack” means what I think it means?

Wog boy Says:

I will take it as “yes”

jane Says:

I believe bada bing means “bed” Wog boy.

Wog boy Says:


I was close enough, either way bed was there.

alison Says:

Wogboy women always say when a man moves that well on a dance floor,then they also move that well in bed too,and Novak,Gael and Rafa are all good movers,i know my husband is :-)too,what does your wife think of your moves on a dance floor,just curious? (AHEM) ;-)

Margot Says:

alison responded to this discussion in totally wrong place….now look crazy! Lol.
Would it be so difficult to have an edit/delete button here?

Wog boy Says:


She doesn’t talk much, but since she is still with me, I guess I am a good mover too … I mean on a dance floor;)

alison Says:
