HE HAD JUST pocketed a cool $1.9 million and won the first Grand Slam title of his career — but it seems Andy Murray only had a $6 soda to celebrate his historic US Open success last night.
After holding off Novak Djokovic in a nailbiting five-set thriller, Murray and his entourage hit midtown Manhattan for their victory party at plush Chinese restaurant Hakkasan.
Between them the party racked up a $6,500 bar tab, according to London Evening Standard reporter Joy Lo Dico on Twitter.
Murray’s share? $6 for a single lemon soda — although after a marathon final which lasted almost five hours, all the Scot probably wanted was just to go to bed.
With prices like that for a soft drink, it’s easy to see how Team Murray could’ve dropped a wedge as they celebrated. Wonder if Andy picked up the bill for the other $6,494 as well?
