Andy Murray made a dig at the Conservative government and Prime Minister Boris Johnson after the 2022 Spring Statement on Wednesday. The former world No 1 is currently competing in the Miami Open, where he is set to face Federico Delbonis on Thursday.
Murray took to Twitter on Wednesday to make a joke at Boris Johnson’s expense after Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced the 2022 Spring budget. The 34-year-old has previously taken aim at the government, including last year when he slammed them for a “pathetic” pay rise for NHS workers.
He is currently in Miami for the second of the two ‘Sunshine Double’ Masters 1000s and is hoping to end his streak of five consecutive second-round losses, stretching back to the Australian Open. But he will have a tough time making it further at the Miami Open, as he would meet top seed Daniil Medvedev in round two if he can beat Delbonis in his opener on Thursday.
While enjoying his day off in Miami, the three-time Grand Slam champion noticed a comment Sunak had made earlier in the day and was quick to call out the Conservatives on social media. “Only the Conservatives can be trusted with public money,” the Chancellor was quoted saying.
