Strawberries & Cream is the traditional Wimbledon treat, and it also seems to be the inspiration for the 2012 Adidas kits. Check out what Ana Ivanovic, Maria Kirilenko, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, and Andy Murray will be wearing this year as they try and make a statement on the lush Wimby grass.

Entries in Andy Murray (91)
Andy Murray has become the new face of the Swiss watch compnay Rado, which was recently announced as the official timekeeper AEGON Championships. Andy had this to say about the new pairing,
And I'd have to agree! While in Indian Wells, Andy Murray answered a few questions for his fans. He talks about a childhood experience of mistaking custard for shampoo, and then describes himself in 3 words. To laugh a little with Andy...press PLAY! Enjoy!

Andy Murray, who doesn't regularly do long television interviews, sat down with Sir David Frost in Monte-Carlo and had a very, at times, personal chat that gives us much more insight into his world. They talked about his rivalry with Novak Djokovic that has been around since they were kids, how he idolized Andre Agassi to the point that had all his clothes as well as a hat with a blond wig attached to the back (ahaha), whether an Olympic Medal or a Grand Slam title is more important (he'd take either), and then his girlfriend of 7 years Kim Sears (this is a funny moment in the interview):
Frost: You're not secretly married are you?
Andy: No, not yet. No matter how much she is pushing me. I haven't fallen for it yet.
He also talks about his parents divorce when he was 9 which he admits was a difficult time for him. He shares a bit about his dad who we don't hear about often because his mother, Judy Murray, is usually a staple in his box at tournaments. But, his dad does come to some of his matches - he was at the Australian Open this year and also comes to Wimbledon every year.
It's a long interview, but definitely worth a listen, so press PLAY! Enjoy!
Sometimes, being a manic fan can the most rewarding affliction in the world. Waving the Swiss flag in 2006, cheering on Novak Djokovic in 2011 in mispronounced Serbian, raising a knee and fist in time with Nadal in 2010; all good. At some point, though, things take a turn for the worse. Supporting Federer now without losing your dignity? It’d be easier to show more grace running naked up the street. Vamosing on Nadal can’t be easy either, and yelling for Murray? Well, who said that’s ever been anything but bad news? But heartbreak won’t stop a true fan. These are the people that admit they’re a little obsessive, that take the good times with the bad, and don’t stop being crazy for their player just because times are tough. Chances are, we all have a little mad fan in us. Every week we take a look at one high-profile fan and analyze just how crazy they are...

I caught Andy Murray with his coach Ivan Lendl out on the practice courts at the Sony Ericsson Open. Andy was practicing with Kei Nishikori and although they didn't interact much, there was a lot of laughter between Lendl, Murray, Daren Cahill and Neil Harman. Everyone was having a great time, and it's always nice to see Andy smiling. Enjoy!
My last day out on the field was arguably my favorite day at the BNP Paribas Open. I finally caught Andy Murray with his entourage out on the field pre-practice session, Alexandr Dolgopolov and his coach Jack Reader, as well as Feliciano Lopez signing autographs for fans.
