Does  anyone get the feeling that the English press would like to start another war using Andy as a reason to invade Scotland. Honestly they must be the laughing stock of the world to write the gutter rubbish they do when there are so many bad things in the world. Just imagine if Henman had been Welsh!! It's time to ignore the childish media and support the only glimmer of hope that the Brits have of a tennis champion.

It's not going to be a problem soon. Just wait until Oliver Golding joins the seniors' tour. He will be the new Golden (sorry about the pun) boy and Andy will be forgotten and once again be Scottish.

Oli might well be a new Tim, doing and saying all the right things and looking like a nice south of England boy.

Yes, I can just hear the shouts of "Ollie we love you!" echoing across the hallowed Wimbledon turf, except for one thing - he may be ex-public school like Tim, but from what I've heard is that, unlike Gentleman Tim, he's quite a feisty individual who has, in fact, been compared by at least one reporter to Andy.  It'll be interesting to see though if the fact that he's English makes that more acceptable to the strawberry 'n' pimms brigade.

He doesn't though does he? He looks like a bit of a bruiser. What's more, because of the acting he's said he enjoys, or can cope with, the spotlight so that's an excellent start. George Morgan is my favourite but we've got a handful of young men coming up nicely. It's a huge jump from juniors to challengers but let's hope they make it.

I think the fact that there are a few of them helps - hopefully, they will push one another on but also support one another and the media attention will be divided.  Andy has ploughed a very lonely furrow since Tim retired - he has often spoken about how nice it must be for the Spanish and French players to have so many in their camp.

Oh for goodness sake the poor boy is not even on the tour yet and we are getting into this if he is BRITISH and is good at what he does who cares!!!

Ever since Andy started to care, and I suppose that will continue for as long as he does! It's not so much what they think though, as what they say!

Amanda Platell's comments in her column today in The Mail certainly won't help Andy's image with the British public - 24 years old, £22Million wealth and plays an average of 1.5 matches per week but whinges.

When my sister (happily married to a McNeil for 49 years) reads this she'll hate Murray even more, despite the nice things I say about him.  Opinion will be like a monkey on his back unless he learns to win over the wider public.  Sorry, but it's true and I suspect a stubborn Andy knows it.

Does your sister read that 'rag' as well? The fact is, that the people who don't like Andy, don't know Andy like his fans do, and more to the point, they don't want to, so they are only too happy to believe the tripe that's written about him. Andy bends over backwards to please the public and 'stubborn' doesn't come into it! People like that? I for one couldn't give a toss for what they think!

So how could Andy have 'won over the wider public' in this case? Should he have said no to Nadal when Nadal asked him to add his voice to their grievances at US Open? Should he have said 'No comment' and thus avoided answering when asked direct questions by the media?

Of course it's no surprise that The Mail etc have whipped it all up to use as a stick to beat him with. Sorry, but I think Andy is his own man who wears his heart  on his sleeve. Yes, it can put him on the line over 'PR' stuff - but it's just him being true to himself. Like it or leave it.
