MURRAY PRAISES NHS
Andy Murray paid tribute to the NHS after his win over Otte yesterday.
And also slammed the 1% pay rise the frontline workers got for their efforts through the pandemic.
He said: “I think the whole country kind of realised how important they all are, and maybe hadn’t got the recognition that they probably deserve up until now.
“So, yeah, it’s fantastic that they have been able to come along and watch some of the tennis.
“Hopefully they can enjoy it and, yeah, hopefully the politicians can realise that they deserve more than what they are getting paid just now.
“I think, what is it, they got something like a 1% pay rise? It was pathetic.
“So, yeah, they obviously deserve a lot more than that.
“They have done an amazing job getting us through the pandemic.”
