image for Andy Murray fans blame confectionery giant for his Wimbledon tennis bugger-up
Another of Andy Murray's downfalls

The untimely exit of UK No 1 tennis player, Andy Murray, from this year's Wimbledon, has been laid at the feet of Bassett's the sweet maker, by fans of the Scottish tennis star.

Wilma Scorelift, chair of the Andy Murray supporters club said that their star and mentor had been lulled into a false sense of security by the association of his game with the popular mint sweet.

"Murray Mints, Murray Mints, the too-good-to-hurry mints", and "Never hurry a Murray, they're too good to hurry" were two popular slogans in connection with advertising campaigns for the mints, and Ms Scorelift suggested that these chants, being sung by enthusiastic fans, may have been the reason Andy Murray lost his match.

She said that while Rafael Nadal was running around the tennis court hitting the ball all over the place, especially into that place deemed as 'in' by the tennis rules, Andy Murray was sauntering to' and fro' along the rear white line appearing to be "never in much of a hurry".

She is convinced that Spanish tennis spies had implanted the Murray Mint advertising theme tune in both the fans' and Andy Murray's head, and it is for this reason he lost his tennis match, not because he was crap as many commentators have otherwise suggested.
