Haye can learn a lot from Murray; PICK OF THE DAY.

Live tennis BBC1/2, 1pm MOST of the reaction to Andy Murray's emphatic win over Feliciano Lopez seemed to imply that the Scot had dominated because of his anger about the Spaniard's flirting with his mother, writes Michael Brear.

So how do you get yourself sufficiently psyched up before you take on a tennis colossus who has bullied you off the Wimbledon court in straight sets on the previous occasions you have met? "He actually isn't very good at PlayStation," said Andy Murray about Rafael Nadal yesterday.

Oooh. Harsh, very harsh. Even Shane Warne would have thought twice before saying that about someone.

Some people feel that these kind of brutal mind games have no place in sport but hey, Murray isn't here to make any friends and he doesn't care who he annoys in his quest for greatness.

Listen up David Haye because you could learn a lot. All this talk about putting your opponent in hospital, decapitating him and linking him to Hitler rattles no-one.
