yep a great player but sadly born into an age of amazing players
Why so sad? Let's instead revel in the amazingness of the other players you mention.
Im starting to feel that we put far too much weight on nationality - why does it matter so much if said person happened to be born on a piece of earth which happens to have a border that you were born within (or not for many in the case of Murray fans).
Surely personallity, dynamism, character, sportmanship, flair should account for more?
I take nationality as an added bonus. If the best proves to be English/British then great - I get to say ''look at our great British export'', but to what end? National pride at best (xenophobia at worse?).
Im much more insterested in saying ''look how great that performance/champion is''
for example, Ive enjoyed every moment of Federer's development and career - and feel lucky to have witnessed his dominance. The fact he is Swiss means little to me, his personality shines through. As well as Nadal. True Greats.
