But to boo your own, nah I'm out.
Completely agree. Booing is great, it adds more atmosphere. Don't like it when people boo their own player or team, though.

over exaggerating every thing. You don't even have a valid point LOL No one deserves to get booed. I find it disrespectful and classless. especially if you are getting booed in your own country. its embarrassing and disgraceful

Why can't he be booed in his own country, especially if the spectators take a strong disliking to his behaviour on court?

Just because he was born on the same piece of land as me doesn't mean I should give him my unwarranted support and accept his bad behaviour.

Nationalism not even once.

its just pathetic and disrespectful, booing a player that's just won Britain's first GS in like 364527521 years. He didn't get the reception he deserved , end of. He merely tapped his racket off the ground then all of a sudden BOOOSS all round. His behavior wasn't even bad on Sunday. In fact lots of tennis fans exaggerate his behavior . I can think of many tennis players that have a much worse attitude than Andy's. At least Andy is humble, and respects his opponents

The abusive Fedfanboys are damaged in their personal lives.
They are not true tennis fans.

Remember the US Open bitchfight in the stands? Old man got pelted by a thug.

How about the fan with her baby crying & whining in the hot stadium because her mommy didn't feed her with her booby? Probably a Fedfangirl.

The Fedfan dimwits with bulging eyes in Thailand and Halle were wonders to behold.

He has brought nothing but determination, spirit and effort to this sport. The many times I have seem people say he is a mug, he should retire, he should do this do that is very demoralising and pathetic. and as a matter of fact the British are pompous gits when it comes to tennis. Their mentality is just all about glory hunting and and that crap. They don't respect the game as well as others do.
is it confirmed?

It's disputable whether the section of the crowd that boo'ed him were even British & Andy Murray supporters, who knows, I remember seeing a lot of Swiss flags. He was roundly boo'ed because sections of the crowd thought he was wasting time by changing racquets before the start of a point, not realising he'd broken it the point before. I know the Brits are a strong advocate when it comes to fair play, so it's likely they jumped to conclusions and got the wrong end of the stick.

In the context of the match as a whole, Federer is a key ingredient in this discussion. Put someone else (i.e Novak) at the other side of the net, and the applause and encouragement is generally louder between points.

I shouldn't be complaining. The Olympics & Davis Cup aside, Tennis is an individual sport and allegiances to ones country should be an after-thought when it comes to the support of any particular player. The fans pay their money and are entitled to express their opinion.

Technically the French Royal family and nobles invented tennis. It was known as jeu de pommes. The game may have existed in some form in other parts of the world but us Brits, like with Football, were the first to create the original official rules, tournaments, national teams and lay the ground work for the international competing sports scene.

I.E. Oldest football stadium (Wembley), oldest tennis tournament(Wimbledon), oldest golf venue, oldest cricket ground (Lords) etc. I am not sure about Twickenham for Rugby and Silverstone in regards to motor racing I am sure that these venues are among the oldest as well.


Did you know that of the 10 most popular sports in the world, 7 were "started" here. The other 3 I am guessing are Basketball, American football and baseball.

Most people i know in here in England like Federer more than Murray. Personally i'm not a fan of Murrays tennis. As a man, he can be very witty and amusing. His on court antics are what makes me dislike him most.

As for the 'because he is scottish' thing...There is a general feeling of dislike for everything Scottish in England. I am sure the Feeling is mutual north of the border. There lies the problem, it's a catch 22, the more you hate me, the more i hate you and so on. It also doesn't help that atleast half of Scotland want to be independant from the U.K. because that is causing further resentment.

p.s. im a big fan of Drew Mcintyre in the WWE, so im not anti-scottish, atleast not completely

Those sports are also very similar to existing British sports: Cricket/rounders, Rugby and Netball.
