(June 23, 2014) WIMBLEDON – Seems that defending Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has a fan in former basketball superstar Shaquille O’Neal who was in attendance in the Royal Box as Murray played his opening match.

The “big Aristotle” along with his girlfriend, saw Murray win over David Goffin 6-1, 6-4, 7-5.

Murray was asked about “the big Aristotle in press.

“I saw him after the match,” Murray said, “just when I came off.  I never met him before.

“But, yeah, he’s a big boy, that’s for sure.  He was huge,” Murray said with a big grin.

“Yeah, he’s very entertaining.  I watch him on the TV a lot when I’m over in the States.  Yeah, he said that was the first time he’d been to the tennis before.  He enjoyed it.  It was nice. “
