British tennis superstar Andy Murray may still be licking his wounds after being surprisingly eliminated from the Monte Carlo Masters 1000 tournament today (April 20), but the effort put into a video to convince him to play at the Millennium Estoril Open in Portugal this month will surely help raise his spirits.
The nearly two-minute long video is an 11th hour attempt by organisers to add Murray to a list of competitors that already features Portugal’s top tennis player João Sousa as well as Argentine Grand Slam winner Juan Martin Del Potro and Australian ‘bad boy’ Nick Kyrgios.
To convince him to play at the event, organisers promised to make Murray “feel at home” in Estoril with some of his favourite things, including “Toblerone chocolate, a Portugal football jersey from the Euro 2016 to add to his collection and some of the best fresh fish Estoril has to offer”.
The video is being promoted alongside the hashtag #AndyComeToEstoril and has over 18,000 views (at the time of writing) on the tournament’s Facebook page.
The Estoril Open is an ATP clay court tournament taking place between April 29 and May 7 at the sports complex of Clube de Ténis do Estoril in Cascais.
