The article raises some good points, but it over-eggs them. For a start, if Kyle does go onto become a top 10 player, he'll get a lot more attention than Tipsy and Stan, because of the considerably larger age gap. Kyle won't be reaching his peak until Andy is thinking about retirement, so the press will be ready to give him attention.
When Murray was a new kid on the block, the press wondered if he would be the one to win a slam, and be the next Perry, so I'm not sure that anything has changed there, except for the name. The press were always mean to all players, including Andy, for only
making it to a semi-final, and loads of people thought Andy was rubbish because he was only #4 in the world.
Younger British players will definitely gain more from the advice and inspiration Andy can give them. Andy said watching Tim do well helped to motivate him, so it should be the same, especially as Andy is so good at tactics, and apparently very willing to share tips with Dan this summer.
My other point is that they surely mean a double edged sword. They mixing that image with "two sides of the same coin", which means something different!
