Andy Murray trolls Greg Rusedski on Twitter for skill challenge attempt

Three-time BBC Sports Personality of the Year winner Andy Murray is often tarnished with a reputation of appearing rather grumbly, especially in interviews.

As the limelight hits stars in different ways, some can act out and do all they can raise the attention of the media and their fans, *cough* Nick Kyrgios *cough*. While others, like Murray, let their talent do the talking on the court, and carry out all their classy gestures and charity work quietly and under-the-radar.

Murray has broken character many times, whether it be appearing on Mock the Week with his wife Kim, or breaking down following his Wimbledon victory in 2016. Murray fans have seen a full display of his emotions.

While filming with Sky for the ATP Finals, Greg Rusedski attempted to show off his trick shot ability by taking on the #TennisTekkers challenge showing the world how good he is at keeping the ball up using the edge of his racket.

Naturally, this didn't go too well, with Rusedski having to ask Jamie Delgado to swap rackets as he felt his was not wide enough to complete the task.

A truly embarrassing effort saw Rusedski manage only seven as he bumbled around, losing control of the ball.

Murray reacts to Greg's effort

Following a questionable display from Rusedski, who retired in 2007, Murray took to Twitter to mock the attempt.

He wrote: "This has to be a wind up?!" followed by two crying face emoji's as he slaughtered the former British number one.

Various users then challenged Murray to post his own attempt. You would assume he could probably match Rusedski's tally with his eyes closed.

Elsewhere, Murray has announced he has split from coach Ivan Lendl for the second time ahead of his comeback from injury next year.
