The Estoril Open organisers are going all out to get Andy Murray to feature in their event. They have come up with an innovative strategy which they think could lure Murray to come to their event despite it being just before Rome and Madrid(events that Murray is certain to feature in).
In this rather hilarious(and a little creepy) video the Estoril Open organisers go all out in telling Andy that they would do anything under the sun to make him feel at home in Estoril. The organisers have done their homework in identifying Andy’s interests and are using them to get him on that plane to Estoril.
Toblerone, Sushi, Portugal’s football jersey and ‘James Bond’ have been used as clever baits to somehow get Andy to play the tournament.
Murray succumbed to a shock loss in Monte Carlo, bowing out to a spirited Alberto Ramos, after leading 4-0 in the decider. He has been recovering from an elbow injury and was making his comeback in Monte Carlo, and while it is very unlikely that he’ll be opting to play the Estoril Open, it is heartening to see the amount of effort that the Estoril Open Organisers have put in in trying to get the world number 1 to play their tournament.
It would be interesting to see how Murray responds to their plea, and if he even considers making an appearance. I am sure his PR team would be itching to come up with a witty reply to this one.
