EM – Andy Murray rejects offer to play in Saudi Arabia over human rights concerns

0

The lucrative offers coming from Saudi Arabia are not enough for Andy Murray to put money over morals.

The 34-year-old has turned down a seven-figure sum to play an exhibition match, according to Express.

Saudi Arabia has long been accused of “sports washing,” which spends heavily on events to cover up the harrowing allegations of unlawful killings, torture and inhumane treatment of prisoners.

He has always stood in the shadow of the big three, but has occasionally won grand slams.
