Yesterday during the rainout at the US Open we said we bet ping pong was going on in the locker room while the matches were suspended, and Andy Murray confirmed it today.
Murray has a ping pong history at tournaments, so we’re happy he was the one to confirm. At the Aegon Championship back in June, Murray used a ping pong match he lost to his finals opponent Jo-Wilfred Tsongafuel his victory in the finals.
Luckily, or unluckily for table tennis, today is beautiful and matches are in full swing. Murray just wrapped up a straight set victory over crowd favorite Donald Young to get himself into the quarterfinals. With a full day of table tennis behind him, Murray may be on the path to victory, although another ping ponger (Nadal) is on the same side of the draw and looking as good as ever on hardcourt today,
