This brings the meaning of “do not disturb” to a whole new level.

Andy Murray, the No. 2 tennis player in the world, has revealed that a hotel maid once stalked him across Europe, entering his room and stroking his arm while he was sleeping. She was then spotted at two additional hotels Murray stayed in during other tournaments.

“At one of the tournaments I played, a maid in the hotel … I had a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign on, on the door, and she came in and sat on my bed and started stroking my arm at about 7 in the morning when I was still sleeping, and then turned up at a couple more tournaments in the hotels that I was playing at in Rotterdam and Barcelona,” Murray said, according to The Daily Telegraph. “I don’t know if that’s a fan thing – that’s a bit extreme – but that happened.”

Murray’s description of these events was in response to a question about the craziest thing his fans have ever done. He did not say specify when or in which city the initial incident occurred.

Security around tennis tournaments has increased in recent years due to stalking threats.

“The ATP takes any breach in player security extremely seriously,” the ATP said in a statement. “All players are encouraged to report any incident involving a stalker or unwanted attention to the ATP director of security, who will assist the player and his team in reporting such an incident to the appropriate authorities in the jurisdiction that it occurred.”

Murray was injured during his Davis Cup win two weeks ago but has come back strong at the China Open this week. He defeated Andreas Seppi on Tuesday to advance to the second round.
