The only time he wakes out of his ornery stupor is to yell "COME ON" in an effort to "pump himself up" in the most classless way possible. Americans celebrate greatness and true classy champions, who rise to the occassion on the biggest stages. Murray is none of these things.
I agree with most of your post, except for the 'classy champions' part. America doesn't care if you're classy or not - we 'cheer' for Serena... Flash, power, arrogance and overall greatness are cheered for and celebrated much more than class.
