I really thought that if Murray lost that game Djokovic would win the match, even with the 2 set deficit. It looked like Murray didn't have much left. Crazy ending.

Congrats, Scots. Brits, better luck next year.

On a serious note, how does this compare to the gold medal?

Gold medal means about as much to tennis as it does to an NBA player's career. It's great and all but really doesn't mean much when assessing your career. Though I suppose those opinions will change as we get more and more years where professionals have been allowed to compete in them.

Just great. Now we're gonna get Andy Murray on the radio 24 hours a day.

The Wimbledon win means about 50 million in endorsements and an end to a 77 year uk drought.

According to the Andy-Murray-O-Meter, Andy Murray is now at 100% British.  Although, according to their Twitter feed, he did dip down to 98% after the third set break.

I'm already regretting my rash promise to bum Sir Cliff if Murray won.

Sorry, Aaron Rodgers, no Wimbledon trophy for you this year.
 
2013-07-07 03:26:37 PM  
Yeah. Let's see Andy Murray pay a London cabbie with Scottish banknotes for his trip from Wimbledon to Stanstead Airport. We'll see how "British" he's considered then.
 
2013-07-07 03:31:38 PM  
It was a great match.  I am happy for Andy, though I still prefer Joker, and even better, Roger.

Andy Murray could pay in signed toilet paper squares tonight.

I don't think tennis should even be in the summer Olympics, neither should football (soccer), golf and rugby. That aside, winning one of the four majors will always rank higher than a once every four years tournament. Same with winning the World Cup, the Masters and whatever the hell rugby and it's 4,838 different codes compete for.

Great win the Scotsman, now one of the storylines every Wimbledon fortnight won't be "Will a British man win a title"? Whatever will the talking heads natter on about?

That tweet had me in stitches this morning.   Proper quiet brittish stitches, but none the less.

It will be a small conundrum for them.  I remember them chattering about it back when I was watching the Borg/McEnroe duels, and it had been a long time then.  Of course times were dark back then, as John Lloyd was their best hope for a win.

"Why hasn't an Englishman won since 1937?"

Congrats to Murray, the first Scotsman to win Wimbledon's men singles (unless you count  Harold Sergerson Mahony, but he was raised Irish).

That's because Murray just did something Lendl never could.

The British National Party will start importing American Tea Party members to train them in the proper way of shouting 'WHAR BIRTH CERTIFICATE? WHAR?'

If he was born in Scotland than he was born on the island of Great Britain, making him British, yes, trollmitter.

It does make me wonder. Great Britain was formed by the unification of the English and Scottish crowns under King James in 1603. It was a Scot that came up with the damn name. It as retarded as those people who say "I'm not American, I'm Texan."

I see.  So I should start describing myself primarily as North American, seeing as the USA is on the continent?  Will Russians start calling themselves Asians now?

Yes, you should! Much like how when I want apples at the grocery store I sometimes buy oranges because they are exactly the same thing.

Not quite. It be like you arguing you are a citizen of Illinois and not the United States or you are a citizen of the Leningrad Oblast instead of being Russian. You just sound sort of retarded.

It was a good match, but I think we can all agree that McEnroe could beat Murray or Djokavic even at his current age of 55. In fact he could beat them both at once if they were playing as a doubles team.

Neither of those are countries.  Scotland is a country.  Nice try though.
