Andy Murray 'serves' Lacoste CEO a reality check: 'Getting injured isn't unfair behavior'

Andy Murray has hit out at the CEO of Lacoste, Thierry Guibert who published a heavily criticised bizarre tweet taking aim at Stefanos Tsitsipas after he withdrew injured from the ATP Finals.

Guibert who of course is involved in the sport through such players as Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev wearing his brand posted in praise of Sinner: "Hats off to Jannik Sinner for his win tonight, despite the unfair behaviour of Tsitsipas, he showed to everyone why he is a future champ and an authentic guy."

Murray puzzled by Lacoste CEO's tweet

To which Murray responded on Friday morning: "Bizarre post from a CEO of a sports brand. Getting injured is part of sport and isn't unfair behaviour". Many under his original tweet believed that the criticism towards Tsitsipas was unfair.

The Greek played his opening match of the ATP Finals, but then withdrew only games in against Holger Rune leaving to an ATP Finals fracas as Taylor Fritz had to take to the court to play an exhibition injured. Hubert Hurkacz then replaced him for the final group game against Novak Djokovic.

But some took the line that Tsitsipas was only there to collect his pay check which is what Guibert seems to be heading down similar lines with his thinking.
