Hear, hear, come on Nadal

I cannot support Murray. Regardless of whether he is representing Britain, after that comment two years ago I see no reason why I should support someone like him. Thankfully I don't think he'll ever win Wimbledon anyway

----------------------------------------------

just out of interest do you hold grudges againmst your friends for jokes they made 2 years ago?? If so i'd be very surprised if you have any!!

Here we go again, setting ourselves up for a major disappointment!! Murray struggles past a demoralized Gasquet and we think now dream he can beat Nadal.
Please.
All you need to do is remind yourselves about the french open final and remember how Nadal completely destroyed Federer and you will realize Murray would have been better off trying to stop a moving train than stop Nadal in his current form.

Wake up people, Murray's made us proud at Wimbledon. Do not expect him to split the Red Sea next.

I am a scot so my opinion will be dismissed, as is always the case ;-)

However, and I am fortunate to be able to say this, I have met both Murray and Henman and once played against Andy (I lost dismally - but not surprisingly!).

I can say, without a second thought, that one of them was a thoroughly nice and disarming guy and one was a pompous oaf. And the nice one wasn't the Englishman - that is simply my opinion. However, I always supported Henman - he did wonders for British tennis and I thank him for it and wish him well.

I doubt if Andy cares about how his personality comes across on TV to the likes of us, really. He gets enough support and loves his tennis. The "nasty" ones tend to be more interesting to me anyway, or the perception of it. Being competitive is what drives them on. I am sure Andy has the utmost respect for all his opponents.

Good luck to him, he represents the pinnacle of our game at the moment. Some pride and aspiration is acceptable.

I will be supporting Nadal.
Murray is so anti-English, any English person who supports him is a fool.

Whether you like Andy Murray and would like him to win, or not, is quite irrelevant. Nadal to win in 3 or 4 sets. I'd be worried if I was Andy.

Yes, Nadal was very "worried"... I think Murray will never be at the same level, he played well though but he is not a number 1 or 2...

If Andy Murray occasionally smiled and looked as if he was enjoying the sport, instead of prancing around like a B movie film star, showing off by flexing muscles and pulling ugly faces, then I would wholeheartedly support him. But he's probably only in it for the money.
