The SNP have promised that if they win independence Andy Murray will get to face Andy Roddick in a GS Final. Empty promise

Oil, however we'll have to see if the UK government lets and Independent Scotland keep all the oil receipts. I doubt they would and then there is also the small matter of RBS and HBOS.

On the other hand I think Independence will happen before Muzza wins a slam.

Murray's girlfriend is English. Is there any chance he becomes English instead of Scottish if independence does happen during his playing career. Would be interesting to see.

The Scots don't want full independence. There will be more devolution but definitely no independence. I have a feeling that Andy will win a slam in the next two years so I voted for him .

I sincerely hope Scots don't go for full independence, it's always a sad failure for everybody involved when peoples who have shared a country for so long break apart. Today's world is in need of examples of better integration, not of yet more frontiers separating people.

What a question--I just want to see Andy win a Grand Slam. And I'm leaving Scottish politics out of it!

LOL! If he wins a slam he will be English, until then he is a Scot.

Sean Connery knows best--a free Scotland and an end to colonialism. Poor Murray, doesn't know who he is--Helsinki syndrome?

If you're a Scotsman, there's no such thing as an upgrade.

How on earth could he become English? There is precisely zero chance of him not calling himself Scottish in the event of independence.

Re: Scottish Independence or Andy Murray winning Grand Slam, which occurs first?

At this moment, Murray is a far bigger threat to Nole than Nadal is. That says a little about Murrays quality. He should not be underestimated. I think, that Murray has more a mental block against Nadal and Roger, than he has with Nole. Thats why he is closer to beating Nole than the other two guys. Maybe because they grew up together, and are good friends. So he is thinking if my childhood mate can do it, so can I... So he has it a bit easier against Nole...
