Nice write-up too on MSN News -"Unbelievable" support for Murray
Olympic and US Open tennis champion Andy Murray has thanked supporters for an "unbelievable" homecoming celebration.
The 25-year-old was given a hero's welcome in a triumphant return to Dunblane, near Stirling.
Thousands of people waited hours in wet weather, chanting his name while waving Scottish flags and home-made placards. They were rewarded for their patience, with Murray appearing to sign as many autographs as possible as he slowly walked along through the town.
He also took time to take part in a knockabout with youngsters at his old tennis club.
Murray said: "I had no idea what to expect, so to see so many people show up and show such support and hang around for so long in the rain and cold weather was unbelievable. The last week I haven't been thinking about tennis much - I've just been relaxing and I'll get back onto the court in the next few days. That's when I'll see how I'm feeling.
"I'd hope that from winning the US Open I've gained some confidence and I need to try to keep the momentum with me till the end of the year. I've got to go back to London tonight but I spent some time with my mum last night, I had a nice lunch with my dad and I saw my grandparents before this. It's been great to see them."http://news.uk.msn.com/uk/unbelievable-support-for-murray-1
