Even though at first look it might seem that being a family relative to famous athlete is a great thing it also has its bad sides. Andy Murray's grandparents, Roy and Shirley Erskine, have found themselves in a situation to receive some unpleasant mails regarding their grandson Andy.
The 84-year-old Mrs Erskine, revealed to the Radio Times magazine, quoted by BBC: ''We've had one or two nasty letters. One about Andy supposedly snarling on court, and another about his accent, saying he sounded American.
Just comments like that, but they do upset you.'' On the other side, when it comes to her husband Roy, 82, he told it's prerogative of those people who write these comments. However, he is upset by them.
Judy Murray, mother of famous British Duo of Andy and Jamie Murray, tried to calm her parents down. '' 'Put it in the bin, just forget it.' She would tell me that there are always going to be people like that'', said Mrs Erskine.
