As the clip begins, Andy states, “One of the favorite things about playing at Wimbledon is the support I get from the crowds. Take this audio clip for example, “Cmon Andy”. After a point, it works perfectly. But if used at the wrong moment it can distract even the most focussed of players. So there you have it, show your support at the right time and that way players like me won’t be interrupted.”
