Just for the record......I am 'very happy' with Andy getting 3rd place, as although I think he was as deserving as anyone, I knew he wouldn't win. The reason that I did not want Bradley Wiggins to get first place for winning the Tour De France.....and yes, I do know that he did other things as well, but that was the biggest, is because that was a 'team' effort! A 'planned' team effort! He did not do it alone! There was at least one other member of that team who could have won it, given the chance!
There really wasn't. You could make an argument for Froome but none of the others. Wiggins was the best man on that tour, no questions asked. Just look at the Olympics, where he destroyed the individual time trial.
All of the top 4 were deserving and I wish people would stop trying to discredit all the others. It's impossible compare to sports. Equally they will be arguing that Murray has four grand slams a year whilst Ennis and Farah won an event that comes around every four years.
You could argue about this for days and ultimately everyone is heavily biased in favour of their own athlete/sport as they can fully appreciate their achievements, whilst knowing little about the other sports. Be honest, how many here know the ins and outs of cycling? There is a lot more to it than endurance (although endurance obviously plays a far bigger part to it than it does tennis).
