As far as I can tell Roger Federer isn't a knob head. Just a fecking awesome tennis player.

As for Andy Murray, the wife watched his game against Roddick and says Murray was on fire. No easy feat to beat to beat the ATP no. 5 seed, especially in straight sets. He won't win the championship, but he has a great chance in the fourth round (especially if he ends up playing Grosjean, as expected).

He'll probably go out in the quarter finals.  ;)

He's Scottish AND British just as you are English AND British.

Well done Andy, Scotland's greatest ever tennis player  ;D

What's the big deal about whether he was wanting England to win or not? This is tennis not football, it's an individual sport for fux sake!

Looks like people here have sunk to same level then.  Andy Murray spoke his mind and has taken the backlash on the chin.  Whatever he'd said, he was in a no win situation.  Look at Gordon Brown - nobody believes him when he said he was backing England.  Andy said what many other Scots said but in doing so has taken all the flak from "little" England.

Well done for getting past Roddick, lets hope he can go a little further.  Wishing him ill beacause he spoke his mind?  Grow up the lot of you

Andy Murray is doing a sterling job, flying the flag for Scotland and GB.

I'd be interested to see what the real sales figures are for those shirts in Scotland. I suspect that not many have actually been sold. I haven't seen anyone wearing them.


Yeah - like those news reports about the sale of mangos quadrupling in Scotland when when England played T+T. Let's face it, selling 4 Mangoes in Scotland would quadruple it unless someone's worked out how to deep fry them. ;)

 Andy Murray is getting what he deserves for speaking his mind and admitting he supports whoever plays England.

I'm merely doing the same and speaking my mind in supporting whoever plays against him.

Whats the difference?


I couldn't give a flying feck where he comes from - although the fact that he has said some things about England doesn't help - but he just seems such an odious unlikeable twat, like so many tennis players, that I just want him to fail miserably >:( As I've said before, and will say again, Tennis is a sport for people who don't like sport!

I was pleased as feck when Henman got beat, he's an odious unlikeable twat too

I'm going to join this Scotland-England tit for tat and wear the colours of whoever Tim Henman is playing in future.


My guess is they'll be all white.

Good riddance indeed ;D

Now he's out of Wimbledon, and I've taken my England shirt off, I can get back to my normal rational fair-minded self :)
