Andy Murray OBE! Disgraceful it should have been a knighthood!

http://www1.skysports.com/olympics/n...ar-Andy-Murray

So Wiggo gets a knighthood for winning a major and Olympic gold, Murray does the exact same thing, yet only gets an OBE? Are you fucking kidding me? REALLY QUEEN? REALLY?

Anyway congrats to Andy, it's the least he deserves after the year he's had!

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

the tour de france is the pinnacle of cycling, wiggo in all likelihood will never win it again

whereas in tennis, the 'pinnacle' is less certain, but from a brit prespective its definitely not the us open, wimbledon is more like it

Re: Andy Murray OBE! Disgraceful it should have been a knighthood!

Why would he want anything from the Queen anyway? He won the slam on court fair and square, while the Queen was merely born as one.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Good point but with Wiggo he had no pressure on him from the UK public, if he had not of won the Tour De France no one would of cared and no one would of slated him for it.... whereas had Murray lost his 5th slam final in a row every one would abuse him and give him lots of stick....

It doesn't matter.

It's not experts who give them out. It's politicians who have their faves and their own agendas.

Andy Murray's face doesn't fit as much as other UK champions this year. He's from an unglamorous area of Scotland from a working class background.

That's why his US Open and Olympic titles secured him just an OBE (the same award no-slam and no-gold Henman has)

Re: Andy Murray OBE! Disgraceful it should have been a knighthood!

what does OBE even mean?

The English screw Murray over every chance they get, not surprising. If he ever does win Wimbledon, hopefully it's after Scotland declares independence.

Nadal "Sampras, Ivanisevic match. or one between those kind of players, is not enjoyable. It's not really tennis. it is a few swings of the racquet. For me in the past it was just serve. serve". arrogance.

clay excluded. successive win 0.  If grass and a hard are fast. Like Sampras era. Nadal is able to win only with clay. power of defense and muscles. boring ugly. All the surface is slow now.

fake time-out. cheat. gamesmanship. too noisy annoying always. excuse. boycotts threatened. always dissatisfaction cry complaints. dissatisfaction to schedule. selfish two-year ranking. bump to player. ugly protest. always exaggerated appeal of self condition. etc. overrated by fanatic arrogant blind fan

Wiggo winning the Tour was a first in a 99 years whilst Murray winning a slam was a first in 75 years. For Great Britain.

Because UK in cycling, before Wiggo, was non-existant. That cant be said about tennis.
