UK supermarket Morrisons has done its bit for national tennis pride (and terrible, tenuous puns) by changing the name of its Wimbledon store to ‘Murrisons’, after British hopeful Andy Murray.

The Scot’s chances of becoming the first British man to conquer at SW19 since Fred Perry in 1936 were given a boost by the shock defeat of Rafael Nadal at the hands of world number 135 Steve Darcis, a relatively unknown Belgian, in the first round.
