Come on now Lioned, you must admit the boy has talent. When other players start losing, they just change their racquet. Andy Murray changes his entire nationality! You don't even have to watch the match to see whether he's winning, you just have to listen to the BBC news to see whether he's still "British".

This is true.I wasn't aware of the Dunblane thing so i may have to give him a bit of slack for that.

Yes it's true, he's a Dunblane survivor. But he never, ever speaks about it (can't say I blame him) although many journalists have asked.

I thought it was very good of both him and Tsonga to sign all the tennis balls andprogrammes for the kids as they were leaving the court after the semis. They must have been exhausted and only wanting a shower and a beer, but they still made time for all the little kids on the way out.

I think its reasonable to say that his sometimes dour demeanour has a lot to do with that tragic day, how can anybody truly recover from something like this and it would always have an affect. This is why I so applaud him for what he has achieved since and understand why he probably hasn't developed a friendly disposition as such. His dry sense of humour does get misread I think like with the England losing joke, which was taken out of context....but this is what the media always do, twist a quote around into a story to make their headlines from not what the quote really meant

It will tough against Feds no doubt, but he has dropped quite a few sets this tournament and in one match was 2-0 down, so I feel Murray has a better chance than he would have done previously. He needs to be on top form though!

Murray has beaten Federer eight times already (Federer has beaten Murray only seven times). He just has to do it now, when it really matters!

Offers for tickets for the Match have reached £15,000 but it is looking more than likely the rain will intervene. I just hope the hysteria and expectations
of him does not affect his play or that he doesn't develop an injury.

At the moment it is raining in Wimbledon, Tim Henman sheltering under a huge BBC Umbrella gives the edge to Murray. However, Murray's former Coach
says if the match is played with the Roof on Federer will win, if the Roof is off Murray will win.

So the Coach proved right.All over Scotland , particularly in Dunblane, Murray is their Hero but I fear he will be like Henman , always the Bridesmaid never the Bride.

By Kat Higgins, Sky News Online

Branding experts believe Andy Murray's tears after his Wimbledon final defeat are potentially worth millions to him.

Public relations executives say that despite the British star's loss to Roger Federer, the humility and emotion he showed after the match have won him the hearts and minds of thousands.

In his post-match interview, the Scottish athlete choked back tears and struggled to speak as he came to terms with the result.

And tears were falling among the millions of men and women sitting on Centre Court and watching at home.

PR expert Max Clifford said this tide of emotion has "changed the way people perceive Murray" and will open up all kinds of doors for him.

The 25-year-old already has advertising campaigns with sports companies but Mr Clifford said Sunday's performance will give him wider appeal, beyond the world of sport.

"His tears are potentially worth millions to him," he told Sky News Online. "His career and popularity will now be more successful and lucrative and last a lot longer."

Nigel Currie, a sports brand expert, said although Murray may have been viewed by some as less 'media friendly' than other sports stars, it doesn't mean he is any less marketable.

I really thought he would win.sometimes all these tournaments do too much damage to the Body, but if you can win £1 million at Wimbledon alone,
think how much these top players win around the world .!!!
