If there's one thing I simply cannot stand it's the way the British slag off their top sports stars whilst going barmy over a bunch of slags from Essex or Newcastle...
No-one particularly liked Agassi when he blasted onto the scene, saying he was only where he was because his thug of a father had 'bought' him his success; what a load of b*ll*cks that turned out to be!
really? I always liked Agassi, don't remember any backlash myself
Murray is one of our top sports stars, who actually does very well at what he does and is proud of it, unlike our poor excuse for a National football team...
I think you've missed the point that most Murray bashers are trying to make.
Murray simply misses the likeability factor.
However, I think he clearly went a long way toward rectifying that today, it's becoming clear that he is probably just misunderstood.
His army of fans just grew considerably, I for one shall be rooting for him on future slams.
I would also love to see Federer take his 8th Wimbledon title though, he deserves the record.
