Living in Australia has the advantage of celebrating the New Year in front of everyone else. the disadvantage
we lose Andy Murray before everyone else. The British tennis player said goodbye to (almost) the Melbourne crowd on Monday, and history will remember that he made it through "going on" [lui]in an epic battle in five sets against Roberto Bautista-Agut, despite the promise to do everything in his power to return to Australia in 2020
Murray should, as he had announced a few days ago, 2019 leave the professional chain. We thought it was a good time to tell you why we would miss Sir Andy and why you would do well doing the same
His British humor (and his self-esteem)
If you do not find Andy Murray funny, you do not like humor. The Scot is a smart guy, who stands out with his coquetry and his sense of self-irony from the courts. Last Weapon: On January 6, the five-time finalist, who is not happy with the Australian Open, is all satisfied with the trophy of the tournament. He has published the photo on Insta, not without humor. "I will never come closer," he writes.
We could quote you a thousand other cowrie shells, the famous "How do you eat your strawberries?" "," My fingers ", the Christmas jersey ultra-corny or recently drowned the year 2018" shit "on New Year's Eve under alcohol, the report is the same: Andy Murray is a super funny guy and certainly a very good friend.
His commitment to the feminist cause

Before tennis, Murray had arrested Martin Solveig for his postponed question to Ada Hegerberg at the December Balloon d & Or; "Why do women still have to come to terms with this kind of bullshit? What questions have they asked Mbappé and Modric? I imagine something related to football and to anyone who believes that people have overreacted and that it's just a joke was … that was not the case, "he was outraged.

He took a place in the middle of Federer, Nadal and Djokovic
We often forget to talk about it, but Andy Murray has managed to turn the superhuman trio Rodgeur-Rafa-Nole into a quartet by encrusting himself in the band. First on the pure chart of accounts at ATP, where in the worst case he was the undisputed No. 4 worldwide. Then, with his many finals in the Grand Slam (a total of eight, in between great), then with his three big hits (two for Wim, one for the US Open), to which we will add the Olympic Gold and the Masters of Arts later this year 2016. And to say that this guy brought us from the routine Federer, Nadal, Djokovic with a body at the Elijah Price. Respect.
His grumpy (sometimes hysterical) side in the square
We love Andy outside the place, we like to hate him inside the big rectangle. Boring game, nonchalance, bougainvillea, insults against his clan, insults against himself, snowshoe breaks. Andy Murray could become everything and its opposite if the game took an unsatisfactory path. In 2016 he tried to explain it in an interview The magazine team, "I've been like this since I was a kid, I've always been an extreme competitor who quickly gets frustrated if he loses […] I do not know where it comes from. Am I Is this the situation? Are these the influences? It turns out that I have that in me for 11-12 years. It has been seen against Bautista-Agut, he will have "that" in the end. Provided this end comes as late as possible.
