Interesting how Boris has become much more positive about Andy in recent months.  He used to be pretty critical but he can clearly see the transformation that has taken place and has the sense to discount glitches like Paris.

I agree tamila. Kids in Scotland usually start languages too late. They should perhaps start about 7 years old the younger the better. It is nice to be fluent in another language. Basically people hear are too lazy to learn.

I would lay the blame on the education board rather than the students.

Aileen.. it's offline because it was live at 7pm. I saw a bit of it. Nole was great, a real natural.
A big reason for his popularity is due to his interaction with his fans.

I actually think Andy would be good at this. He's a natural too when he's not in a formal environment, most people have no idea how funny he is. He'd probably enjoy it more than the oh-so-tedious press stuff he has to do, and he could get the doggies in the act too. Maggie is already a star in her own right. Very Happy

I would love to see Muzza give this a try.  One of my fave groups do them on a regular basis and it builds up a great rapport with the fanbase.

Btw, I feel that this guy looks like Berdych...not exactly though.
Paul Bettany.




And this is Berdych...just for comparison

Maybe from a far distance and almost closing your eyes and picturing Berdych in your head and convincing yourself that he looks like Berdych...
Ahh, now he looks like Berdy! w00t

Berdych is definitely better looking than both. also, I am not seeing any resemblance as far as any of those are concerned.

There is a slight resemblance but I would say Berdych is better looking.

That is obvious. Berdy does look good.

Btw, resemblance to who?
The guy in the video or the photos?

From the ATP site

World No. 3 Andy Murray saw his breakthrough season come to an end on Sunday after falling 7-6(5), 6-2 to Roger Federer in the semi-finals of the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London. But all was not lost for Murray, who reflected that a changed mentality on court has propelled him to greater satisfaction, even in defeat.

“I was going for my shots tonight. In the second set, I didn't hit the ball great, but I was still trying to make things happen, still trying to go for my shots rather than letting him dictate every single point, which sometimes in the past I had done,” said Murray.

“I think that's what I have to be most pleased with because when I had opportunities in big matches this year, I did try and take them. I went for it. I still need to learn sometimes a little bit when that's off and I'm not hitting it as well to rein it in a little bit. That's something that will come with time. But that would be the thing I'm most pleased with, that I've been trying to go out there and win matches rather than waiting for my opponent to lose them.”

The 25 year old etched himself in the history books on numerous occasions in 2012. After becoming the first homegrown player to reach the Wimbledon final since 1938, Murray won his country’s first gold medal for tennis in 104 years at the London 2012 Olympics, avenging his Wimbledon loss to Federer. Murray then capped off a trio of milestones by lifting his first major trophy at the US Open, ending Great Britain’s 76-year wait for a male Grand Slam titlist.

“I would have liked to have finished with a win. But that didn't happen,” Murray said. “But for me, it's been the best year of my career by a mile. So why I would look back on that negatively now would be silly because I've achieved things I've never achieved before. I have to look back on it positively. If I don't, then that would be worrying.”

Prior to attaining all his new successes, the Dunblane, Scotland native brought in a new coach, eight-time major champion Ivan Lendl, to join Team Murray. Lendl’s appointment began with an immediate triumph at the Brisbane International, but the physiological impact of the former World No. 1 was evident when Murray responded to his Wimbledon disappointment by winning the Olympics and the US Open, ending a run of losses in career-defining finals.

“He's obviously helped me a lot. There's been a lot of decisions made, off‑the‑court decisions that are very important to your career, also decisions when you're out there playing matches, as well,” said Murray.

“Moving over to Spain when I was younger was a very hard decision to make, and that would be up there with this one.  But since I've maybe been on the tour, I think it was a step that I needed to take and was very important to me and helped me get over that final hurdle.”
