(MENAFN - AFP) World number three Andy Murray says he's not much of a reader despite hours to kill on the gruelling tennis tour, revealing he gave up halfway through his last book... Harry Potter.

The Scot, whose US Open win last month gave Britain its first Grand Slam men's champion since the 1930s, was speaking after Novak Djokovic professed a hankering for the delights of university life, saying he was a keen reader.

"I don't read books. I mean, I go on the Internet a lot and read stuff online, but I don't read books. I haven't read a book since I was about 14, 15," said the 25-year-old Murray, defending champion at the Shanghai Masters.

"I got halfway through the third Harry Potter book. It was the first one that was really, really big. It was like 600 pages. I stopped around 200. I haven't read a book since then."

Multilingual world number two Djokovic, also 25, said earlier this week he had missed out on a normal education, adding that despite all the travel, chances to soak up new experiences were limited.
