Interestingly, the 34-year-old Scot decided to sport a ‘Ron Burgundy’ mustache to express his feelings for the city. More than the appearance, he even impersonated the famous San Diego dialogue from the movie. For ones who don’t know, Ron Burgundy is a character played by Will Ferrell in Anchorman.

Without any doubt, the Scot has aced the impersonation game. Seemingly, he is also starting to enjoy his time on the ATP Tour.
