Andy Murray and Grigor Dimitrov Have an Ice Bath Together After the Australian Open: PHOTOS

Dimitrov

After winning their matches at the Australian Open yesterday, world #23 Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov (who once enjoyed an on-court strip show with Djokovic) and world #4 Andy Murray made a splash on Twitter when they cozied up in an ice bath together. The 'real-feel' temperatures have been well above 105 degrees on the Melbourne courts.

Tweeted Dimitrov: "@andy_murray! You think he is smiling from joy in the ice bath?"

Roger Federer and Andy Murray: Gay Man in Pro Tennis Should Have No Problem

Andy Murray and Roger Federer were asked in Rome today how they would feel about an out gay player in men's tennis.

Said Federer: Federer

"I don't think it would be a problem. We're very relaxed. We don't play a team sport and see each other all the time. ... We're very open. So whatever happens, happens. I don't know if there are any (gay players). So far from what I've heard, no. But that could change, possibly because of the case in the NBA."

Said Murray:

"I would hope there are no issues on the tour. You know, there have to be some players who are probably gay but I don't think other players have any issues with it and hope tennis deals with this well. I saw the Jason Collins thing in basketball and the player and the owners were respectful and happy about his decision and so I think it is a good thing."

Last week, Andy Roddick and Mardy Fish became the first pro tennis players to sign on to the LGBT anti-homophobia group Athlete Ally.

The mark-up, which took less than a half hour, stood in stark contrast to the several hours of debate that the bill faced before being reported out of the relevant House committee in November."

The upshot of that is that it's tightening Monsanto's control, and makes it possible for them to increase their prices long term. And we've seen this happening the last five years, and the end is not in sight."
