ANDY MURRAY has one bit of advice for Roger Federer for his time in Scotland – don’t eat battered Mars bars!
Andy Murray is set to make his long-awaited return to action when he takes on Roger Federer at an exhibition match in Glasgow on Tuesday.
The British No. 1 has been hampered by a hip problem for much of the season and has not played since July, when he suffered defeat at the hands of Sam Querrey in the Wimbledon quarterfinals.
The same injury also forced the Scot to withdraw from the US Open in August, before making the decision to bring his competitive season to an early close.
Following a lengthy spell in the gym, Murray is now ready to test the extent of his recovery against 19-time Grand Slam winner Federer, who will be visiting Glasgow for the first time.
The Andy Murray Live event — looking to raise funds for UNICEF and Sunny-sid3up — will also feature a doubles match with Murray and his brother Jamie taking on Tim Henman and Mansour Bahrami.
Federer, 36, is in Scotland for the first time tonight for the Andy Murray Live charity event in Glasgow.
And Murray, who hails from Dunblane, was keen to give Federer some advice on what not to do on his trip.
Asked to give Roger Federer some advice for his visit, he laughed: “Don’t try the fried Mars bars!
“I tried one of them for the first time last year and it was horrific. Stay away from that.”
Although the product has not received support from Mars, who said “deep-frying one of our products would go against our commitment to promoting healthy, active lifestyles”.
On Federer coming to Scotland for the Andy Murray Live event, the man himself said: “I’m really looking forward to it.
“We are all very lucky that he has agreed to do it.”
