I don't give a toss what a player's nationality is ... all I care about is, is he a good player !!  Nationality has nothing to do with it.

English he is then

With a name like Henderson, you'd almost have to be Scottish Smile

sorry to mention the tennis again but while hes around I hope Cahill helps ex-scot murray with his serve once and for all. Mcenroe reckons he needs to shorten the action and ,pls god, develop a tricky 2nd serve, er, like all the other top pros.

 Djokovic stats in his last 42 matches bear this out, his 2nd serve appears to be the difference (same as murray - though in the other direction )

Listening to Frew McMillan on Eurosport on Saturday during Andy's match, he said that he just loved the "new sliced 2nd serve out wide". Stated that he thought that if Andy could continue with it his overall game would improve by 10%....which is quite a lot

10% would put him on top. also if he starts to hit the ball a bit earlier off both wings who could live with him. hes got the skill in his wrists but isnt being used because of his stupid retrieval game - running all over the place like a moron rather than hit winners.  against berrer he proved he can do it

To change the subject, I wonder if any of you can offer any help & advice please ? My daughter has bought us 2 cheap tickets for Queens on Monday 6th June. We are hoping to see Andy play but the chances are very remote I know, but maybe we could see him practicing ? We have never been to Queens & don't know where the practice courts are ? I emailed the Queens club, a few weeks ago, for a map of the grounds, but they have not replied. So can anyone help please ? Also, I have just come out of hospital & rather weak, so I will need somewhere to rest & sit down, maybe like Henman hill ? Is there anything like that there please ?

Queen's is a very small tournament in terms of ground size, I believe it's quite easy to see players practising. For someone to sit down - there's a restaurant/bar area in one corner, behind the main stand of the centre court - just be there before all the poshos turn up and spend the day hob-nobbing with the champers! lol

Not sure about seeing Andy on the Monday - do the top seeds get byes at Queen's? You might be lucky. Think

PS: I think the practice courts are to the left as you go into the site, just before you go into the walkway under the main stand. They're all laid out quite openly and you can see across the lot.

birth certificate's the only way you'd know murray was scottish these days he never goes near the place if he can help it. lives in london, surrey, miami, doesnt he? anywhere but scotland.
hasnt even got a scottish accent. who cares ? only the scottish twits on here
Strange - I'm 100% Scottish and Murray's accent still sound Scottish to me, and the reason he doesn't visit Scotland too often (how do we know that anyway?) is because London and Miami have the training facilities he needs.  Also if he's so Anglicised, why did he say recently that when he retires from tennis he would like to move to Scotland and focus on coaching kids there?  At least he hasn't deserted his homeland completely like that 'great Scottish patriot' Sir Sean Connery.
