    Congratulations to Andy Murray !

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 11 Sep 2012, 11:55 am

    It was with great celebration that all of Scotland and most of the rest of Britain and the world received the news that our Andy had finally achieved his first grand slam in the US Open tournament, against Novak Djokovic.

    Well done Andy and be sure that many people in the world will be pleased and proud to see your name go up - in gold - on the score board at Flushing Meadows after it has been 76 years since a Brit, ( Fred Perry ), was acclaimed in the American Tennis Open championship.

    It is even more fantastic that Andy's coach, the great Ivan Lendl, did exactly the same, ( had four defeats before claiming his first grand slam ), in his remarkable history.

    Yes Paps, as even if I am not a Scot I really think that Andy Murray is one great BRIT.

    Some one in the press was calling for Andy to get a knighthood, but I think that that is ridiculous as he is still too young for anything along those lines. Mind you, I think he will be a great candidate for Sportsman of the Year.

    Yeah, the idea of a knighthood is just foolish at the moment, but I do agree that he has to be on the short-list for "Sportsman of the Year".

    It is great that at last Tim Henman will now no longer be the face we see as Britain's front-man as he was never done anything worth crowing about in his lack-lustre career.

    All we need now is for Andy to break Wimbledon and we will see "Henman-Hill" being finally renamed as "Murray-mound" - as it should be. Twisted Evil
