World number two Andy Murray did something which was never seen on the Tour before, a player cutting his hair with a pair of scissors mid-way during the match. The Brit later on revealed during the press conference that he was being bothered by his hair so he cut them off.
He did not like the fact the media was asking questions about that. However, the hair cut did not provide him any help as he was thrashed in straight sets 4-6, 1-6 by Rafael Nadal in his second round robin match at the World Tour Finals.
Murray said "I don't know why such minor things make such a big deal to you guys. I had some hair in my eye, and I just wanted to get rid of it. That literally took two seconds. That was it. It was nothing to do with next week or anything to do with the outcome of this match". He added "I started the match extremely well, I think.
I played a very good first game. Although I got broke in the second game, it was a good game. I was hitting the ball well. I held all the way through to 4-All from that change of end. It wasn't like it was something that affected me at all after it happened". Murray will play fourth ranked Stanislas Wawrinka in his final round robin match on Friday and a win against the Swiss player will not only take him to the semi-finals at the season ending championships but will also guarantee that he will finish the year as world number two ahead of Roger Federer.
