Andy Murray dreams of being a princess

Andy Murray took to Twitter over the Easter weekend to keep himself and fans entertained whilst becoming delayed on a flight.

The fun occurred on Murray's official page which has just under 2.5 million followers on Easter Sunday. 

It isn't the first time that the British No.1 has drawn attention on the social networking site, this is one of a number of spontaneous sessions. Earlier this month he had followers rolling on the floor with laughter when he April fooled everyone by announcing falsely that he was to name a new coach.

Rather than misleading people this time, the 26-year-old decided to enlighten the general public by answering personal questions. It seems his 'bio' which states simply "I play tennis" isn't feeding fans with enough detail.

Highlights among the half hour session included calling himself "boring" after a fan asked him to describe himself in one word. 

Another revelation is that the Scottish star dreams three times a week of being a princess. Lets face it; who doesn't?

We also found out that he shops in Sainsbury's, he likes his steak cooked medium, he did an easter egg hunt, he sets an alarm before he leaves and, possibly most importantly, he hinted at being a closet fan of boyband One Direction.

As is often the case on Twitter, the two-time Grand Slam champion faced some abuse to which he simply 'retweeted'. 

Murray was seemingly on his way to Paris when his plane faced engine problem, in response he kicked-off the session by insisting that fans use a #herewegonextplane in their questions.

The Wimbledon champion is currently on a self-imposed break from tennis as he looks to find a new coach before the French Open commences at the back-end of May.

His last action was a singles rubber defeat to Fabio Fognini as part of a quarter-final loss in the Davis Cup to Italy. He is set to return to the court for the Madrid Masters where he will need to banish some clay demons.

The ATP tour is reaching a busy stage at the moment. Last week Stanislas Wawrinka won the Monte Carlo Masters and there will be two more events in Rome and Madrid before the Grand Slam at Roland Garros.

There won't be long to recover from the Paris Slam before Murray will need to start his Wimbledon defence in June. 

Murray's break is partly down to a need to rest also. His best form hasn't been evident since back surgery in 2013 and the Davis Cup tie in Naples took its toll.
