If there were no better cyclists than me I would be world champion.
It looks like soon he will be back to being Scottish, although with his recent troubles maybe he is there already.
Never forget, it's all a matter of perspective;
In another era, Spitting Image would have done this
If, say, for the sake of argument, you were the third best time trialist in the history of cycling and your career spanned the 2000s, and the best two cycled in the 1990s, you would have been world number one for a decade. If, however, you just happened to have been born 10 years earlier, you would have never got to higher than world number 3.
Put it another way. When Murray, Federer, Nadal and Djokovic have all retired, in say 3 years time, someone who isn't fit to lace their boots will be world number one. We live in a freaky era of tennis, where most of the world's best ever are all playing at the same time (men's game).
I am no lover of tennis to call him a Scottish nobber is taking it a bit far.He has attempted to come back following his hip injury and operation
Tennis is like many sports is physically demanding.Recvery from hip surgery can be protracted the twists and turns of tennis are going to put a tremendous strain on the hip
Just watched the interview with Murray and looks as though he will make a decision re retirement after his next match
As for him being Scottish was wasn’t several top British cyclists Scots.I wouldn’t risk calling SirChris Hoy a Scottish nobber.
Djokovic is only 31 - plenty of year left !
I think you may have missed the deliberate humour and irony in this very old post.
Errm, you missed the Scottish humour in my post then?
The British press always refer to him as a plucky BRIT when he is doing well. When he's getting beaten, he reverts to being referred to as SCOTTISH. HTH...
PS... Check my location, my blood is tartan!
Murray will be missed. It wasn't long ago that it was a cause for celebration if a Brit got to the second round of a Grand Slam.
Murray was a great tactician, he had no massive shot, and as a result had to work himself and his opponent more through shot placement. That makes for good viewing.
Bet he gets good deals on his car insurance.....
Sad day for tennis.
Us British Are very proud of him @Brandane
apparently tennis is the crime scam leader in the betting league in the lower ranks.
Such a shame that gambling is ruining the game and games..
And yet another way - imagine Lewis Hamilton lining up on the grid alongside Schumacher, Prost and Senna in every race.
Pizz all over them in them old cars
Any sport where only 2 people play is very easy to manipulate. See boxing and Snooker.
