What I find sad is a multi-millionaire sportsman that travels the world playing a game he loves? Having a face like a slapped arse and mumbling in Interviews like a spoilt little b*****d.

I remember when David Miller used to be just like him.Maybe he will grow up and become less of a tit in later life.

Maybe I'm wrong and Mr Murray does have a sense of humour. Anyone that has his face painted like a tiger can't be all bad.

Tennis is such a middle class sport that the gene pool of potential talent is small. Currently all we've got is tennis playing parents encouraging their off spring to get involved.
What we need is a government or big business funded initiative to trawl the primary schools of the UK for potential talent then fund and nurture that talent to maturity. I reckon somewhere in the UK we have Wimbledon Grand Slam champions.
In the mean time we've got Andy Murray who plays good tennis but he's no Nadal :roll:

Neh!
Likeability is an important factor for all sectors, be it sport or 'celebrity'.
I cant stand miserable sportsmen, and I cant stand miserable celebrities. In fact, I cant stand most celebrities.
Keith Lemon rocks though. OOOSSHHH!
