Andy Murray: a fan of tights?
Andy Murray has revealed the secret to his tennis success, after his third-round match at the US Open.

At the end of his clash with Feliciano Lopez, the Scot appeared in black tights, a muscle-defining vest and black shorts, much to the surprise of onlookers.

He admitted that that he has been using compression tights for some time, after his tennis clothing sponsors told him that they can help athletes recover after competing.

"I normally cover them up. But I forgot to bring trousers with me, so I had to walk around like this," Andy Murray joked with fans at the event.

The 24-year-old and current world number four player beat Feliciano Lopez in confident sets this weekend, earning him a place in the quarter-finals of the US Open.

Andy Murray will take on American Donald Young this week, as he looks to secure a place in the semi-finals.
