Re: Murray and the press

It's the English press. They hate Scots but are willing to gobble up their talent as their own when he's winning. When he wins, he's their talent, when he loses he's some Scottish idiot with a tennis racket. Who didn't know this? The English do this all the time, it's stupid.

LET'S GO!!
SLAMS: 3 TITLES, 8 finals, 9 semi-finals, 8 quarter-finals...
WORLD TOUR FINALS: 1 TITLE, 3 semi-finals...
MASTERS: 14 TITLES, 7 finals, 12 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
OLYMPICS: 2 gold medals, 1 silver...
DAVIS CUP: 1 TITLE, 1 semi-final, 1 quarter-final...
WORLD #1: 2 weeks and counting...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 630-174...
TITLES: 44 and counting...

I think to some extent the media buy into the Scottish-British joke, I mean it was mentioned on Comic relief, but even so it's still funny

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Re: Murray and the press

This all started because Andy made a joke about supporting anybody but England in the World Cup. How touchy can you get?

LET'S GO!!
SLAMS: 3 TITLES, 8 finals, 9 semi-finals, 8 quarter-finals...
WORLD TOUR FINALS: 1 TITLE, 3 semi-finals...

Re: Murray and the press

It was a joke. However you Scots despite having no tuition fees, voted at Westminster for England to keep tuition fees, so any stick back is warranted.
