I think in some strange way this award will be important to him. After years of being at odds with Great British Public, (mainly I think because he was so at odds with himself, and so angry ), it will show him that he is valued, appreciated and accepted. Not too mention loved. I suspect that he didn't realise he wanted and needed that approbation until he started to get it. I really liked the fact that he felt confident in asking for the support during the Wimbledon final this year. I think that since the Olympics his self esteem has shot up. He doesn't need this award, but I rather think he might like to have it. Rather like the knighthood, when he gets it. Along with the trophies in his cabinet, they are all palpable signs that the way he has chosen to spend his youth has been worth it.

I think there may be something in that Masaka.  I'm reading 77 at present and I'm struck by how the negativity towards him previously eg being spat at in the street, must really have hurt him even if he didn't let on at the time.

The other night I attended a function and got into discussing 2013 SPOTY and in particular Andy's overwhelming chance to secure the title. Most of the people in the conversation were supportive of Andy, but without much enthusiasm.

However, there was one individual more verbose than others said strongly: "ABM -  anyone but Murray." I quickly jumped to Andy's defence and asked why. This moron reiterated the standard reply: "because Murray hates the English".

How depressing this is that still after all that Andy has done and after the years that have passed since Andy's joking remark taken out of context there are still today people believe that it was a serious comment and as a result still look at Andy unfavourably.

   No it's deeper than that. These people need an excuse to justify their hatred of him, and thats it.

Its all Henmans fault for starting the joke. He knew what Andy or any Scot would say under the surcomestances. He was hung out to dry. At 19 years old!

You of course are absolutely correct! The overt hatred on his face when he was spouting the words: "ABM anyone but Murray" was plain for all to see
