All youve ever done is played tennis. All youve ever dreamed of is winning a (singles) Grand Slam final. Then, as its becoming more and more apparent that you are a journeyman doubles player, not even a journeyman singles player, somehow your kid brother has the ability to achieve what you can only continue to dream about.
I dunno but I think its harder than it seems to spend your whole life playing cheerleader to your own brother. Would be a whole lot easier if Jamie was a plumber or w/e.
Yeah, I'm sure he'd trade jobs in a heart beat.
While it must suck to live in your brother's shadow, Jamie should count himself lucky. There are few doubles players who enjoy the attention and success he does. He is often portrayed as the "nice" Murray because he doesn't shout on court or display Andy's passion. I find him far less appealing than his younger brother, though.
Despite how he is portrayed, I think he has a bit of a nasty streak. He text Andy and called him a disgrace to his country for thinking about pulling out of a dead Davis Cup rubber. He also insulted Andy through the media without knowing the details of his withdrawal from the Argentina tie. He seemed more irritated that Andy didn't tell him personally. Could you imagine Andy using the press to slate Jamie? While Andy was crying when Jamie won Wimbledon (during radio interview), Jamie didn't even stay to watch Andy's match.
As time goes on, the less appealing I find the lad to be.
