Andy Murray loses it at a fan at the Australian Open

Tennis star Andy Murray has lost it at a spectator at the Australian Open after he was caught using his phone.

The 28-year-old, who knocked Bernard Tomic out last night at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, yelled from across the court at a bystander in his own player's box to “get off the phone”.

Commentator Jim Courier spoke about the situation as it happened during the game, making mention of how tense the Scottish tennis was.

"Murray is agitated. Someone in there must be checking out the old email. He is not happy about it."

Courier added that Murray should invest in nise cancellation headphones if he can’t handle it:

"It seems to me to be a waste of energy. They have to manage the opportunity on the court. They should have a noise cancellation headphone deal for sure. If I am their agent, that is easy money."

Murrey admitted in a post-match interview that the past few days have been stressful. His father-in-law Nigel Sears was hospitalised after collapsing in the stands during a match, and his heavily pregnant wife Kim has unable to join him for the duration of the tournament.

Murray defeated Australia's Bernard Tomic 6-4 6-4 7-6 (7-4).
