Jeff Powell was listing his own personal top 10. His no 9 was thanks to his father, "who was working as a scaffolder at Earls Court, arranged for a side door to be left ajar that night" so he could get in to watch a boxing match! The article is not about Scotland's greatest sporting moments. Another thread perhaps??? Nothing to do with Andy at the Rogers Cup anyway!
I apoogise for causing any offence Elena, but, whilst my comment about Scotland's 1967 'triumph' was intended to be lighthearted, I couldn't see why he chose Redgrave over Hoy who, after all, is British as well as Scottish. Also I wouldn't want to open a thread on Scotland's greatest sporting moments because I see MW as being a British-orientated forum. There is a thread on Scottish Politics, but that was opened for a very pertinent reason.
This thread has already gone way off topic anyway, which is what happens when over-enthusiastic members open them four weeks ahead of a tournament. The time to open this one really should have been when Andy actually arrived in Montreal.
