As he opens his very own hotel, could Andy Murray be the new Basil Fawlty? A business where all your customers seem to spend much of their time complaining: Why would anybody in their right mind, you wonder, wish to buy and run a hotel?
This question occurred to me again with the news that Andy Murray has invested some of his hard-won gains into the Cromlix Hotel, situated near his hometown of Dunblane in Perthshire.
Of all the gin joints in all of the towns in all of the world he walked into this one and decided that this would be a happy resting place for some of his tennis millions. There is something about being in a hotel that brings out the worst in people. As Basil Fawlty discovered though, to be fair, his guests did have a lot to put up with: As a hotel owner you become an Aunt Sally, a sitting target for any passing malcontent to take a pop at.
Like careers in politics and football management, all hotel owning adventures seem to end in tears. Perhaps Andy Murray and the Cromlix will be different, a hotel match made in heaven.
If he pulls this one off, however, it will be a greater success than winning Wimbledon or an Olympic Gold.NATIONAL TABLOID NEWSPAPER SECTION OF THE YEAR Daily Mail Daily Mirror Metro Sunday Mirror Mail on Sunday The Sun.
