Arise Sir Andy

Quote

Your Majesty

Last night a young man from the parish of Dunblane, from the country of Scotland in your realm of the United Kingdom, achieved the single most outstanding sporting achievement by a British man in generations.

This is the same young man, you will no doubt recall, stood proudly on the hallowed turf of Wimbledon just four weeks or so ago, a gold medal around his neck, having outclassed the (so-called) mighty Federer at the London Olympics.

Let us not dally or delay, your Maj.  At the earliest opportunity, invite this young man to Buckingham Palace, bid him to go down on one knee, raise the ceremonial sword and proudly proclaim the immortal words:

"Arise Sir Andy" !

I hope people are joking.
Andy seems to be above all of that Sir blah blah nonsense.
Although he probably won't have a choice in it.

When he has got a whole bunch of slams I'm sure he'll get honoured Smile!

I hope he doesn't get it this year. It's something that should be given at the end of a career after looking back at what the person has achieved.

I think he'd be more embarassed than proud if he was knighted especially in the locker room standing next to Federer, Djokovic and Nadal hearing them call him Sir Andy! So as much as it would be incredible for Federer to call him Sir, I don't want it to be until after he retires.

Plus it will seem a bit stupid in a few years if he wins many more Grand Slams and gets knighted after only winning one.

What Andy has to say:-

Asked about the prospect of a knighthood, Murray said: "A lot of my friends have been messaging me about it and I don't really know what to say.

"I think it should take more than one or two good tournaments to deserve something like that. It would probably be a bit rash."

I did, of course, have my tongue ever so slightly in my cheek when I wrote the opening post in this thread.  However, if Bradley Wiggins is knighted, as is widely speculated, due to his success in the Tour de France and his Olympic Gold, one could readily argue that Andy's achievements are at least comparable to his.

To be fair, Wiggins has 3 more Olympic golds from previous games and 7 medals in total, not just the 1 from this year.

Ainslie is the one who should be knighted this year though.

why on earth should a young man of 25 want to be saddled with something as old fashioned as a knighthood? Give  him awards,sponsorship and above all support for whatever he wants to do in the future. Also add a big thankyou for revitalising tennis.
7to8 years of following his progress has taught me a lot re tennis. Its driven me to learn computering and typing and working out time differences in places all over the world.
So I say a big thankyou but please don't stifle him with a knighthood
