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.
So I say a big thankyou but please don't stifle him with a knighthood.
I think the word "stifle" sums it up very nicely. Andy doesn't go looking for recognition like this and I believe it would place an uncomfortable and embarrassing burden on him right now just as he's managed to get another huge burden off his back. I don't think it would bother the other players though, given that Britain is the only country that hands this archaic honour out, so it's meaningless to them, but I agree with tcbm
that it would sound ludicrous on court when umpires are announcing the score, or worse - "code violation for audible obscenity Sir Andy"
It's time the honours were brought into the 21st century anyway. The use of the words "British Empire", and their motto "God and the Empire", are no longer of any relevance given that the British Empire no longer exists, and it's questionable how significant God is these days.
Tim Henman got an OBE once his career was over, so I think it would be appropriate to wait until Andy's is before any form of recognition is made.
