His attitude and just generally the way he talks on and off the pitch is enough for anyone to throw a racket to his head.
    I don't despise him, I dislike him. However I want him to win as it'll be great for British tennis! Who do you think will be able to stop Murray now then? Nadal, Federer, Tsonga are gone.
    That said Djokovic would beat him I think! Well it would be close at least!

    Potatoe patata. I agree, it would be brilliant for Britain, but.... ugh... it's Murray...

    All my hopes lie on Djok... if he goes out,

    Only one thing to be said, C'mon Murray!!! He is by far the best Scottish, erm i mean British player we have ever had and the only hope of winning wimbledon we will have in the near future, he should have the whole of the British Isles behind him.

    I just hope Djok walks all over him. I can watch him cry again that way... Hahaha! Oh and the 'maybe next year will be my year' speech.

    After the comment he made about the rugby or footy a few years ago I'll never be fully behind him. He was asked by a news reporter if he was backing England to win the footy (I think it was the footy) and his answer was 'No, I'm Scottish, why would I want England to win?'

    Then my response is he is Scottish why would I want him to win Wimbledon..? Just saying.

    Be honest. Will you ever find a Scot that will admit to following England in public?! I felt no more offended by what he said than I would by an Englishman supporting anbody but Germany, or a Man U fan supporting anybody but City.

    When we were at the Paralympic Basketball last summer, we were watching Spain v Germany and the largely British crowd were supporting Spain... the little boy behind me asked his Dad why and everyone who heard the question burst out laughing

    Similarly at the Water Polo, Team GB were playing a south American team (I forget which) and the pre match warm up asked a French fan who she was supporting.... it wasn't Team GB. He asked why and again the crowd all laughed, we didn't need an explanation.

    I certainly don't hold that comment against Andy Murray... it's exactly what all my Scottish friends would say

    I take it none of you saw the bbc1 program on him (Murray) on Monday night? I think it was Tim Henman that explained the "why support England" comment and that it was taken out of context. Im not a tennis fan, much rather watch rugby (purely for the sport.....) but having watched the program have actually found a new respect for Andy Murray.

    I think we should all get behind the great BRITISH hope in Murray.

    Until the great Scottish git fails.

    Yes, when he hit Lendl during the charity doubles at Queens. Apparently, they had a side bet on who would get hit first.
