No 'plucky loser' is Mr Murray...I just hope that our great British press don't move away from their usual past-time of bemoaning the lack of British sporting superstars to pursue that other favourite past-time of theirs - building icons up, only to spend the next few years knocking them down again (I'm thinking Botham, Beckham,etc). Instead, I hope they join with everyone else in enjoying Andy's success, share the glory for the next few days and weeks, and then leave him to get on with the job of retaining the US Open, winning a few more majors in the years ahead, getting to World No.1 and hopefully completing a career Grand Slam (though winning the French may be difficult).
On a related Wimbledon matter, that greatest of tennis competitions provided us with an outstanding political photograph that is just perfect for a caption competition.
My suggestions are:
'You're in my seat, bitch!'
'I think I'll kill the fat one first.'
'I fucking hate blue ties!'
