Andy Murray is celebrating his 36th birthday today – on Monday, May 15 – and the Brit has jokingly stated that he will settle for nothing less than a celebration similar to that of Carlos Alcaraz’s.
Alcaraz celebrated his 20th birthday 10 days ago, on May 5. The Spaniard’s birthday incidentally falls during the Madrid Open, and he has thus been able to celebrate it in front of his home crowd the last couple of years.
This year, however, the tournament organizers landed themselves in deep trouble by allegedly going overboard with their celebrations. They brought out a giant birthday cake on the court for their home favorite and eventual champion, all while treating women’s champion Aryna Sabalenka to a modest birthday celebration on the same day.
Recalling the infamous incident, Andy Murray made a tongue-in-cheek comment about wanting an extravagant celebration similar to that of Carlos Alcaraz. Poking fun at the incident, he stated that he would be furious if his demands weren’t met.
“If I don’t get a cake of equal size if not slightly bigger than Alcaraz today, I’m going to be absolutely f**king furious,” Andy Murray wrote on his social media, adding a series of angry emojis.
