That edit was different to the original post.

You went from "that makes no sense" to "exactly".

Anyway, when I watch Murray with the commentry off, there's no problems, even in his interviews he doesnt come across badly. But when people start bumming off him like when he won Queens. Jesus, he didn't play anyone in the top 10 or even 15 (I think), and no one even gave him a good game and so he didn't even have to play particularly well to win (note, I'm not saying he can't play at a high level if needed). It was just a standard performance but everyones creaming themselves.

I don't understand. he's the 3rd best player in the world. simple fact. his results prove that. he's been ahead of every position he's predicted he'll be in over the past two years. unfortunately people who were quite happy to see Henman be an also ran, would rather Murray be a loser than actually win something.

why are people saying he has no personality?
when he was giving his first press conference at wimbledon all those years back and he snapped at the media for calling him "english". the guy who's name escapes me who whenever he plays he has running arguments with and mum cusses. the guy celebrated like a football player last year at wimbledon last year.
he does have a personality, he just doesnt have a personality that the typical british tennis fan wants him to have.
murray doesnt read the daily mail, vote conservative, nor did he wave to the last concorde when it flew over, but i bet this cunt did.
and what a personality he had. this was about the only bit of emotion he showed in his career.
tiger fucking tim.

I've changed my mind over Murray - used to dislike him, but now (he will be pleased to know) I think he's ok.

least he's got some spirit (think they call it spunk on Neighbours) - unlike that card board cut out [email protected] henman.

here's one from talk tennis for you noble

"I've been supporting Murray folr a few years now and for every Slam since the Aussie Open last year I've thought he would win(except FO). That's not changing for Wimby this year. Go Andy!!!"

What you're really saying is that he's got a rubbish personality, one that equates to gift vouchers that are worth 0.00000001p. Before anyone quips that I'm anit-scotch I'm not, if it was Andy Murray with Ewan McGregor's head then I would think he's ok (no homo). Murray's voice when he talks is so boring.

What does his voice or his personality have to do with it, he just plays tennis and thats all he's ever claimed to do. I don't know why your expecting an eHarmony profile out of him.

Sorry man he's already made the list. Love how it's all not true 1 week before Wimbledon.
