I so wish that what you so beautifuuly wrote were true. In Andy Murray's case though over here in Britain it's not.
I doubt if the majority of British people would get behind him even if he were to win Wimbledon.
It must be great to live in a country where people really do get behind their sportsmen, and I do think it's a cultural thing - the Latin countries seem to have it sussed. And the scenes in Begrade in December were brilliant.
I don't think the American people really took to Sampras either - though living over here I wouldn't know.
