London, June 20 (ANI): A Scottish band has dedicated a song, which it hopes will inspire Britain’s No.1 tennis player Andy Murray to Wimbledon victory.

Rock Salt and Nails believe “Volley Highway” will provide the winning soundtrack to the young Scot’s tournament success.

The Shetland-formed band’s lead singer, Paul Johnston said: “It’s a like a football chant, a real supporters’ song. We hope the whole crowd get behind him and start singing it on central court - that will really help to win the title I think.”

The 22-year-old has set his sights on becoming the first Brit to win Wimbledon since the legendary Fred Perry in 1936, SKY News reported.

The bookies think Murray can he lift the prestigious trophy, and so does one of his most loyal supporter - his grandmother.

Shirley Erskine said: “He has matured physically and mentally a huge amount of the last year. He is coping with all the stresses and the weight of expectation really well - I really think he is capable of winning.” (ANI)
