Default To all the Brits out there...

I was just curious, being a tennis fan, does everyone have their eyes on Andy Murray everytime he comes close to winning something? Is he like a national hero now?

Certainly not a national hero.

He probably is in Scotland, but certainly isn't in the whole of the UK.

Well I think he's great. A great ambassador for sport and I believe he will be the first Brit to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry - and I think he's dishy as well

hes only brit when he's playing tennis

and thats only as the media class him as and go on about it

if he was 150th in the world it would be... scot andy murray

but because he is almost or just as good as world number 1 now he is a brit

if you stopped any scot on the street and asked them do they consider themself brit you can guess what the answer would be

same here in wales its a pretty much mixed reaction... we reconise the union jack but its a scotish and english flag there is no welsh on it

so welsh flags please

YMCMB - some motto

Kind of rough to see Murray lose in every Grand Slam final but...yeah he will prob lose again.

At least he has an Olympic victory.

He's up right now, but it seems that the match is getting close again. Another loss for Murray perhaps?
