No sweat for Andy Murray as he advances at Wimbledon, with a few extra towels for good measure


Andy Murray's Oxshott mansion presumably has a few bathrooms, and none of them are likely to be short of towels.

Murray revealed at his press conference following his third-round win over John Millman that his wife Kim asks for a towel from every tournament he plays.

Nabbing Wimbledon towels for friends and family is something of a tradition among players.

Murray said: "I got one for her in the first round. Gave one to my physio. I normally take one each day and give it to someone on my team. I don't keep them. But my wife likes them. I think they're quite good quality towels."
