Two: If he felt the need to be nationalistic then why not drape himself in the Scottish flag instead? A lot of people who aren't either British or Scottish are probably becoming confused over what he's supposed to be and represent. No wonder the media keeps getting his nationality wrong.
One: first tournament victory, and yes universe man is taking the piss as always, but winning your first event beating Roddick and Hewitt back to back is quite an achievement; besides, it was thrown to him, he didn't go up and get it.
Two: the political geography of Britain may be confusing to those outside its shores, but there is no excuse for news reports and articles to keep referring to him as English. There is, indeed, no excuse for Americans in particular to keep referring to Britain as "England". I find it strange that the concept of being both Scottish and British is such a strange one for many people to grasp.
