Thanks Mark. It does deserve it's own special place. Besides, it's a hard find when you have to go through one too many posts just to look for this video.

From Andy's press conference today ( I like the bit about Sue Barker!)

Q.  Can I ask you about the documentary yesterday?  How did that come about?  Did you ever have any doubts about doing something so personal?

ANDY MURRAY:  Yeah, well, I mean, I probably got asked to do it about a year ago, and I said no probably for about seven, eight months, I think.  Matt, who is in the back of the room, he knows.  He was asking me about it.  Yeah, I said no a lot.  Wasn't that comfortable with the idea.

But, you know, the people that were in charge of it were very, very professional.  They weren't intrusive at all.  I know Sue well, too.  So I felt comfortable speaking to her, even though I cry every time I speak to her (smiling).

But, yeah, I mean, I was told not to watch it.  But, you know, a lot of people spoke to me about it today.  I think it went over well.  So that's good.

Liked the Sue Barker comment (she must take a towel with her now when she knows she is talking to Andy lol) - it's just an other example of how Andy doesn't take himself too seriously and is happy to poke fun at himself and also that he is comfortable in th fact that he is a deeply emotional person (wathing Judy and Jamie on the documentary it is clearly a family trait)

Yep, he's the very definition of it. Completely unchanged by his fame or success and an absolute credit to himself and his family.

Perhaps we can get Sue Barker to interview Andy on radio. That way Andy can avoid that fool Gary Richardson.

I do agree, Andy comes over as a humble, extremely modest and hard working young man. His whole concerns are his family and friends to whom he is always loyal.

I watched this last night. There was one thing I wondered about - Andy doesn't have any Scottish accent or at least I don't notice it. Can't say the same about Judy, dad, Jamie etc.

Most likely living with Kim has tamed it somewhat.

A counter puncher like Andy always fights back.

I am more than happy about Andy's non-Scottish way of speaking. Otherwise I would hardly have a chance of following his words. Yet, I had the impression that Judy and Jamie tried hard to avoid their normally stronger dialect in the documentry. Father Willie and Sir Alex caused serious problems to me.

Haha.  I have to say that an 'accent' is very different from a 'dialect'  I could temper my Scottish accent, and most people would be able to understand my words.  However, if I chose to speak in my dialect...

I am very thankful for it. I did not understand a word Sir Alex said but I understood some of what Father Willie said.
