But I never said I found the US Open more special over Wimbledon. I was just backing up what Joe said.

Cool good for you. Haven't got time to debate too busy.

Ooh right your talking about what was more special for you! Sorry I picked u up wrong.

No problem mate.

Also I am sure Andy still rates the USO quite highly, he's said before the USO is his fav slam .

The USO, Wimbledon and the Olympics were all very special in their own way, to me anyway, because they were all great historic achievements, although Wimbledon has to be the jewel in the crown.

Andy Murray a man of whom all of Britain should be proud

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/sports-personality/25393172

When the British public first met Andy Murray, it certainly wasn't love at first sight.

His small talk failed to impress, and too few of us took the time to work out what makes him tick, or to consider how difficult it must be to negotiate those first few years of adulthood in full public view.

But then he became a champion - at both the Olympics and the US Open - and cried into his microphone as a Wimbledon runner-up.

He was the sporting public's third-favourite in the year of the London Games, and now - after adding the title that British fans so craved - has topped the popular vote by a landslide to become only the second male tennis player to be named BBC Sports Personality of the Year.

He doesn't crave celebrity, or particularly enjoy the limelight, and would rather be out walking the dogs with his girlfriend Kim than strolling down the red carpet in his tux. But the emotion in his voice as he accepted the award from Martina Navratilova in Miami was evident: this means an enormous amount to him, and he would have loved to be in Leeds to accept the award in person.

It would have been out of character, though, for Murray to break away from his crucial pre-season training block, especially as he has not hit a ball in match conditions for the past three months.

Great article Iona.  Just listening to the video of Andy's acceptance speech got me all choked up again.  Also it's encouraging to have confirmation that he should be stepping on court in Abu Dhabi and Doha, after which I assume a decision about the AO will finally be made.

The time delay made for a difficult speech but it was lovely. Andy sounded quite emotional by the end. I felt quite teary watching him. So glad he's getting the recognition he deserves. Roll on Abu Dhabi and Doha.

I have to agree.... Olympics was held in Britain so extra special that Andy won gold and silver for his country, USO really special for Andy and all of us because he came through after making it to so many finals and not winning them, and finally after 77 years Andy wins Wimbledon, a great feat for a great Scot.

He definitely handled the time delay well and didn't seem in the least fazed.  He's come a long way when it comes to dealing with the media in general.

"Listen to the BBC Five Live documentary 'The Day We Won Wimbledon' on Thursday at 9pm, repeated on Christmas Day, have a listen to the three minute trailer..."

I never get tired of hearing about Andy, the Wimby Winner :-)

That's a great trailer. The magnitude of what Andy has done really hits home when you hear all of the Wimbledon winners since Perry being reeled off like that. It still gives me a tingle when I think of what Andy did that day. It goes down for me as the sporting moment of my life, which doesn't take away at all from Andy winning the USO and the Olympics, which I regard as special for different reasons.
