Careful, you're turning in to me lol. I think of it as tennis related Tourette's Syndrome. Not only does it manifest during matches, especially when Andy is playing Federer, or the umpire/line judges/opponent is a complete fool, it also tends to appear when journalists write utter crap.

You do sort of have to laugh at the way the writer calls Andy a choker though. Let me see, 6 major finals in four years, a major win, 12 major semi finals, an Olympic gold in singles and eight Masters titles. That is one hell of a choker we've got there!

what a nasty nasty little piece.   Calls himself a pro - well if that's the quality of his journalism he shows no evidence of professionalism.

Maybe he needs our help (the journalist I mean)  - poor thing, jealousy's a curse. He is clearly sore afflicted.

My thoughts exactly! They didn't help themselves by getting the no of slam finals wrong, I get a bit anal about detail like that - when I read something that someone is publishing for the world to read as part of their job I expect them to make sure their facts are correct - when they don't it lessens the validity of their opinion as far as I'm concerned. Though maybe I'm just a bit too fussy?

I think you should put them right - only to be fair.  I love that someone questioned Fed's stats and another took offence.  He has an abysmal record re Rafa but their rose tinted glasses must obsure that. blink

Also, Andy had to go through 1 and 2 to claim the Olympic crown, did he not?

Is there gonna be tennis in next years commonwealth games in Glasgow? I didn't think there was Frown
I can't understand why it's been excluded, but at least it lets Andy off the hook.  If the games were being held anywhere in the UK I'm sure he would have been under pressure to play for Scotland, especially as he would be in Britain anyway for Wimbledon.


I started off feeling angry with this guy but what he's saying is so malicious and off-beam that I ended up finding it quite amusing.

 Maybe though he'd like to send a copy of his article to this gentleman?






Olympic legend David Wilkie: Andy Murray became a Brit when he won gold.. he'll be English if he wins Wimbledon

http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/olympic-legend-david-wilkie-on-todays-1572278
I remember glamour-boy Wilkie when he was in his prime and the hero-worship that was bestowed on him, but he's another who should have kept his mouth shut.

“Andy is a highly successful professional athlete but I think he now tries too hard to be popular. The public can see through that.
[So his reaction to defeat in the Wimbledon final, for example, was carefully choreographed beforehand just in case he lost?]

“He’s a dour Scot like a lot of us and he’s probably been told by his agent, ‘Dour Scots don’t sell whisky so smile a bit more.’
[The greater majority of Scots are no more dour than any other Brit.]

“But it’s not Andy’s personality. I don’t think you can change people’s personality.”
[Obviously knows him well. Rolling Eyes]

I find these articles are a waste of time.  These writers do not ever know what they are talking about.  They never look at the other great players or the stats. unless they help their cause.  I am now trying to ignore them.

I see Andy has been voted the most popular player at the AO.  He is also well above the other 2 in the stats. i.e. return of serve.  He has the highest number of aces for the year (104).  There is huge improvement in his attitude.  He did not choke.  If that was the case Novak would have won more easily.
