British tennis star Cameron Norrie trolled a bit Andy Murray after winning the Indian Wells Masters as he revealed that he also lost his shoes but unlike Andy Murray he didn't lost a wedding ring as well. At the start Indian Wells, Murray reported that a pair of his shoes, as well as a wedding ring, went missing.
Ultimately, Murray was able to recover it. “Every day I left my shoes on top of the locker," Norrie revealed after the final. "I think maybe someone from the cleaners came through last night and they threw the three pairs of shoes that I had away.
“I looked all day. I had everyone looking. I don't know what the people have against the Brits with stealing the shoes, but I didn't manage to get them back." "Just had to go out there with a fresh pair of shoes.
Yeah, it was just difficult. Luckily I didn't have a wedding ring attached. I didn't lose that, so it was a bonus for me."
Norrie wanted to play in an already worn shoes
Norrie would felt more comfortable playing in the already used shoes but that didn't prevent him from winning his maiden Masters title as he recovered from a set down to beat Nikoloz Basilashvili in the final.
“Ideally I like to play with shoes that I've been using for maybe five or six hits or practices or warmups. I like to have them a little bit used. They feel a bit heavy in general if they're a bit newer," Norrie added.
"A couple of times I was just thinking about it, probably not the best thing. You don't want to be thinking about your shoes. A little bit to get used to. "At one point I said, 'All right, these are the shoes I got, I'm just going to focus on what I can control right now' I wore them in a little bit, came good in the end”.
