Here’s the Guardian’s account of Sean’s bizarre entrance with Alex Ferguson to Andy Murray’s press conference.
When Sir Sean Connery rolled with some jollity into Andy Murray’s victory press conference at Flushing Meadows on Saturday night, unannounced and accompanied by Sir Alex Ferguson and the player’s mother, Judy, there was a sense that Scotland’s invasion of New York this year might be a very happy one. Murray, who lost to Roger Federer here four years ago, is through again to the final of a weather-bedevilled event that, for the fifth year in a row, will be decided on a Monday – against either the defending champion Novak Djokovic or David Ferrer, who led 5-2 when play was suspended because of a growling storm that enveloped the site.
The exchange, peppered by much lubricated laughter, went like this: Connery: “Excuse me for interrupting, but I just wanted to make a point. Where’s Alex? [Applause]. I don’t know where your mother is. Ah, there she is.”
Murray: “Are you going to be around tomorrow?” Connery [deaf to the question]: “Come on, Judy. Judy, Judy, Judy.” Murray [to his mum]: “You smell of wine.” Judy [nodding at Ferguson]: “He made me have wine. He’s just been telling me that Scotland invented the world.” Ferguson: “Been coming here the last three years to New York, and I explained how Scotland invented the world; today we invented the wind.”
Connery: “Today they conquered the world!” Ferguson: “Very good. Fantastic.” Murray [beaming and bemused]: “See you after the match tomorrow.” Ferguson: “Continue your interview … You know I don’t talk to journalists.”
And with that, the Caledonian sideshow was done, just the tonic Murray needed after a gruelling four-set win conducted in a minor gale.
