Wasn't going to but now you have suggested it could be sweet revenge for football, rugby and any other sporting event that has happened in the last few hundred years!
Toberlone is after all my favourite choc!
He's British when he wins & Scotish when he loses
nadal didn't look anywhere near the player i've seen this year and Murray took advantage...good luck to him.federer is a different animal altogether..
point is will you support him or not based on him being a scot?
Support him on the basis that he is a new(ish) kid playing very good tennis and breaking the monopoly of Fed/Nadal -makes it more interesting (however if it was Timmy Wimmy then tonight Matthew Im Swiss)
good that he is from GB but who cares about whether he is Scottish or British ? and it could be worse he could be from Middle England -i just think people dont like Murray because of his personality rather than his Scottishness - if he was a cute little puddin who kept losing bravely we would probably all love him
and its not like numpty football where they cant get their act together for the Olympics is it ?
I personally don't have a problem supporting him, just like I'd support anyone else who's representing Britain. One exception to that rule is Dwane Chambers, I wouldn't support him in anything.
Nope I will be supporting Andy, he is British.
I do get annoyed that SOME Scots and Welsh dont support English, but if they are so bigoted they want to do that, fair enough. I am better than that and can rise above petty prejudices.
I agree that some people might not like Murray because of his personality.

Why wouldnt I root for Murray (other than not being a tennis fan).. Though I can see why the scottish still harbour a grudge about being overrun and conquered all those years ago. This was only to evident when on a trip to Scotland a few weeks ago. FFS how long does it take to passify you lot.
Well I like to think of myself as British but then I was born is Scotland and brought up in England so I don't understand the them and us kind of talk we are all us to me
Having said that Murray is not an easy person to like no matter how well he plays. He looks like the kind of kid thats been force fed tennis by his pushy not quite good enough at tennis mum so has not found the time to be nice to people and realise he's not the best thing since sliced bread
Thought he was awesome last night. Never seen anyone handle Nadal in long rallies like that. Eeven though he is a grumpy bugger I really like his attitude.
Will be right behind him tonight.
never actually met the man so can't say either way.none of these guys come across well in interviews anyway.they've spent 90% of the time playing sport, the personality building has taken a back seat.
shame but it appears long since the likes of mcenroe,ashe/davenport who went to Uni and got an education and learnt how to mix a little
