21 Tour Championships.....  €18.5 million in prize money..... 7th man ever in Open era to reach semis in all four slams in a year... . 

Along the way helps his country get DC promotion, and helps his brother get some doubles ranking points.....

Beautiful girlfriend..... multi-millionaire..... jet set lifestyle....

Wish I was such a failure!

Anyway, the Slams will come, I have absolutely no doubt about that.
Haha! Well said MP! lmao And you are right Sir Panda.........He should pin it on his locker

Yes, I never understood the phrase 'over-rated', period. Rankings and achievements don't lie.

You can surely only be over-rated if someone says you're something that you're clearly not. For example, if someone said 'Murray is one of the all-time greats', you'd be able to dispute that, based on what he's achieved to date.

But nobody is saying that. So I don't really get it.

You have to risk being shown up to call a player overrated while they are hyped, but no journalist, even amateur, is brave enough to do that.

The only intelligent thing that has come out of the Bleacher Report recently has been the stats articles.  I discovered a while ago that their "contributors" and "featured columnists" (what's the difference?) were a load of empty-headed, self-opinionated numpties.

If they want to sound off about Andy, let them come on this forum and do it!! Sword fight

 Good posting! I put it down to pure jealousy, this countries media is embarrassing, if Andy was born and bred down south he would be the bees knees. Sorry, but that is what I truly believe.

I've stopped reading the Bleacher Report for the very reasons you give Aileen - unless someone on here says that there's an article worth reading.

I agree ChrisMac you are dead right. It appears if you are born north of the border you are unworthy to be the GB number one. It stinks and we have all those stupid rags that claim to be "Quality" newspapers I would'nt even use them to wipe my a--e with them.

I have always said that media based southern bias has been the undoing for Andy - it really irks me that he is never given the respect he deserves as one of the world's top sportsment.  His scottish pride and passion are an asset to his overall game - it drives him forward. Well as a scottish person I could not be prouder to have the best British tennis player in the open era hailing from our wee courntry.  I know there are genuine Andy fans from down South and I applaud them because they are genuine tennis and Andy fans but the "two week Wimbledon" watchers that rise from the ashes every year decrying him really get to me.  Appreciate what we have - he is not overated in any way - his achievements as outlined above are immense.  The welcome that Andy got when he came home to Glasgow brought a lump to your throat and made the haris on the back of your neck stand up - overated - NAE CHANCE THE BOY'S A HERO!!!!!!

I'm so ignorant I don't even know what this Bleacher Report is apart , obviously, from a load of old rubbish.     However I feel I would be even more ignorant if I paid any heed to it.

My old mother used to say " they don't know a bee from a bull's foot" (whatever that means)
but if it's codswallop it suits them.

The Bleacher Report, Iluvandy, is a collection of articles from random contributors who are 'would-be' sports columnists.

Not sure we should even be giving stupid Bleachers articles 'the oxygen of publicity'.  Like others I've stopped reading unless someone recommends a particular piece.  And like others, would suggest an article on why Andy Murray is the most under-rated world sportsman in his own country [meaning UK not Scotland of course].

Bleacher Report is an American news outlet. There's no bias, apart from the fact that the writer is ill-informed, and I wouldn't even wipe my derriere with this diatribe.
