Where is all this support for Murray supposed to be ? I watched Murray's match against Youzhny and there is more atmosphere in a graveyard at midnight than there was on Centre Court for that match.
Murray will not win hes not good enough
I don't think its about being Scottish or English at all, Andy Murray is Scottish with some English ancestry - English grandmother - so he is truly British. He's come through a lot including being a yoing kid during the Dunblane masacre. He's risen to No.2 in the World and already with one Grand Smam title. Best of luck to him, and for the future Laura Robson, not forgetting Heather Watson too.
The BBC today at wimbledon mentioned your cheerleader...I was your cheerleader Andy!! Hope you liked the banner we put up (got told off for that!) We loved every minute ot it, camping out was well worth it!!
Well played Andy for yet another sound win without losing a set - living up to No. 2 seed status.All self-respecting British tennis fans will be cheering you on throughout Wimbledon and beyond. The enjoyment that real tennis fans get from AM is tremendous.Some thrive on -ve and/or irrelevant comments ... they don't know what they're missing - life's better with a +ve mental attitude.
What a player he is. Scotland really knows how to produce champions, in all sports.I wonder if the rest of the UK will ever catch up? When is England going to produce?
317. judorick He finished off the 2nd set brilliantly.hard not to dip when winning is coming easy.
@309 JimainYes, MiniTrue are encouraging this aspect.
@312Aye okay, fair enough. I was actually quoting Jimmy Reid though, who meant it, as do I, as a good thing. Anyway, to get back to the tennis I also couldn't believe the collective panic when he had his 'blip'. Every top player rarely keeps it going for all three sets, let alone five, and we don't have to look any further than this fortnight for that....erm, that is, apart from Nole !?!?
it's the continued reoccurrence of blips that concerns Murray fans, they know he remains capable of the Warwinka style meltdownyesterday he got out of it but against better players he will find it harderstill needs to deal with those issues in his headstill, he could yet win the title so it's all good
I couldn't believe how nervous the crowd got when he had a little wobble in the 2nd set. Have they not been watching Murray during the 'Lendl era'? He's far more resilient nowadays, and routinely turns around 'blips' into confident wins, but the way the crowd reacted during those 15 minutes, you'd think he was getting hammered by also-rans week-in week-out. Calm down, he's better than you think.
Not that anyone reads my posts in detail but I got the years wrong on the last three Grand Slam finals - should have been Australian Open 2013, US Open 2012 and Wimbledon 2012.
Wow, the haters are throwing eppies galore. Fairly cheers you up, especially as we all know it's only getting worse for them. Scotland's No1 makes sure of that with his continued success at the highest level.
It is great to see Andy through to the quarters BUT unless he improves his serve with a consistent 1st and a faster 2nd he will never win Wimbledon.
309.Jimain Well, to be fair, you referenced Scots as a 'mongrel race', whereas 303 is slightly more temperate. I agree with you, but that phrase was always going to offend the BBC - an organisation which uses our public money to avoid being at all controversial and seeks only to achieve an anodyne middle ground.
#306It had been a long wait since he was last knocked out of aGrand Slam (Paris 6/6/12), still you can fill your days waiting,hoping and slavering for a little thrill in your dad existance.
