Andy Murray and Liam Broady have a history of trolling each other on Twitter as Murray delivered a savage roast to Broady on Friday. Murray, a three-time Grand Slam champion, asked his Twitter followers to give their thoughts on the toughest sports to play.
"What are the toughest sports out there? Boxing and UfC are right up there for sure and I’m not saying tennis is the toughest but it’s up near the top!" Murray tweeted.
Broady, who has never been ranked inside the top-100, said tennis was nowhere the top on the list of the toughest sports. "Tennis nowhere near the top. Pretty much all martial arts go ahead, then contact sports.

Then most athletic events," Broady responded to Murray's tweet.

Murray roasts Broady
"At level you play at I agree.
Club/amateur tennis not near the top," Murray said in a response to Broady's opinion.
Meanwhile, Murray is set to play his first clay tournament of the year at the Madrid Masters.

This week, Murray was announced as a Madrid wildcard recipient. After just one of the four Madrid wildcards went to Spanish players, Fernando Verdasco complained on Twitter. “We find it surprising, as well as very frustrating, that the biggest tennis event in Spain shows so little (or no) support towards Spanish tennis players with the invitations granted, especially for the main draws (… ) Their commercial interests take precedence over Spanish sport and deviate completely from the trajectory followed in previous years (…) If we consider any other tournament in the same category, the support given to local players is immensely greater.
Without going any further, the Rome tournament, which takes place the week after Madrid, has already announced its first five invitations and all of them are for Italian players," read the message Verdasco posted on Twitter.
Tennis fans started calling out Murray and he responded to Verdasco's message. "Any tournament can give their wild cards to whoever they want. But just because I’m British shouldn’t make me more ‘deserving’ of a wild card than anyone else for Wimbledon. Holger Rune is less deserving than a local Spanish player?" Murray tweeted.
