WATCH: These tennis fans' recreation of the Will Grigg chant for Andy Murray is painful to watch

It just doesn’t work.

For a while during Euro 2016 you couldn’t turn on a TV without hearing the ‘Will Grigg’s on fire’ song or one of its many variations; the Shane Long version, for example, proved wildly popular with Irish fans.

It’s died down a bit since Ireland, Northern Ireland and England exited the Euros, but it was given a rendition on Friday morning in the most unlikely of venues, Wimbledon, before Andy Murray’s semi-final with Tomas Berdych.

We’re not trying to diss tennis fans or anything, but football-style chanting isn’t really a thing at tennis matches and as a result, the attempt of these guys to replace ‘Will Grigg’ with ‘Murray’ and ‘your defence’ with ‘Centre Court’ didn’t really work.

At all.

It did not go down well...
