Andy Murray reportedly threw a bachelor party for his older brother Jamie at a British club this past weekend and the not-so-sordid details were printed in a local newspaper:

Jamie, a doubles specialist -- that's tennis doubles -- donned a Superman outfit as the brothers took over Prince Harry's favourite party booth for the knees-up at Mayfair's Whisky Mist nightspot. [...]

Just when the 24-year-old groom-to-be thought he had been subjected to enough humiliation in his costume, Andy had his sibling on the back foot again.

‘Andy bought his brother the Whisky Mist Batman Show. Four dancers put on Joker masks and the waiter dressed as Batman to wheel out ten bottles of Dom Perignon,' a source told Metro.

‘It certainly put the groom in the mood. He was dancing on chairs until 3.30am,' said the spy.

This description didn't please Murray, who took to his Twitter account Monday to defend himself against the accusations of fun-having. In three successive Tweets, he wrote:

Why r newspapers allowed to print lies?

my bros stag doo on sunday didn't consist of any champagne, no batman show and my bro was out of there by 12 30 haha all very lame!

It was vodka not champagne we opted for haha

So Andy Murray is saying he doesn't party hard? Andrew WK will be crushed if he reads this.

Why does Andy have his knickers in a bunch about the story? The headline says "champagne fueled" not "cocaine fueled." There's no incriminating quotes or tales of poured-out Grey Goose bottles. They weren't partying with Lindsay Lohan. It sounds like a regular, somewhat-dorky stag party.

If anything, the Metro's article makes Murray and his buddies look better. What bachelor party has a Superman theme? What groom goes home at 12:30? And why the anti-champagne sentiment? If Cristal is good enough for Puff Daddy, it's good enough for the Murray brothers.
