Andy Murray says hotel maid 'stroked' his arm as he slept


Andy Murray has claimed that a hotel maid stalked him after appearing at his bedside one morning and stroking his arm.

The Wimbledon champion has told how he had been playing a tour event, and went to bed with a 'do not disturb' sign on the door.

But he woke the next morning to find the maid looking at him and stroking his arm.

According to the Telegraph, in an interview promoting the International Premier Tennis League, Murray said: "At one of the tournaments I played, a maid in the hotel ... I had a 'do not disturb' sign on, on the door, and she came in and sat on my bed and started stroking my arm at about seven in the morning when I was still sleeping, and then turned up at a couple more tournaments in the hotels that I was playing at in Rotterdam and Barcelona.

"I don't know if that's a fan thing - that's a bit extreme - but that happened."

The Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) runs the men's tours and, according to the Evening Standard, said in a statement: "The ATP takes any breach in player security extremely seriously.

"All players are encouraged to report any incident involving a stalker or unwanted attention to the ATP director of security, who will assist the player and his team in reporting such an incident to the appropriate authorities in the jurisdiction that it occurred."

Andy is currently in Beijing taking part in the China Open.
