That’s a silly comment.

If everything you had strived for in your career quickly disappeared in front of your eyes would you not be emotional? And don’t play the ‘he’s loaded’ card as monetary gain is very clearly of secondary importance to him.


You’re one of the few people on this thread making any sense. Of course he’s loaded, he’ll never want for anything money can buy within reason. No, he won’t have to wait in a long line for his next hip operation!! He’s made that way. He’ll get a nice job in the media to stay close to the game he loves.

But he’ll never walk onto a tennis court in anger, win another tournament / Grand Slam. That’s what he strives for now.

I’ve a feeling he won’t get through Monday’s match. If not, it’s a sad day for British tennis fans. He had his flaws and I’ve made reference to them on here many times, but the likes of Andy Murray won’t be Produced by this country any time soon.

One of the most fortunate people on the planet with a public display of self pity. He has a lot more to be grateful for than sorry for. People like Alex Zinardi put his actions into context, Andy Murray will be fine.
I don't buy into the poor Andy narrative.

Of course Murray will be fine. The point is that he’s having to give it up before time. He’s naturally upset and I’ve great sympathy for him. Nothing to do with how much he’s earned or ease in receiving treatment.

That said, I was rather perplexed how this story made headline news on the day given what’s going on at the moment. That I disagreed with. But Murray didn’t ask for that.

What an excellent post couldn’t have put it better myself. Murray has played in tennis’s greatest era and held his own with three of the finest who have ever lived. He deserves all the good wishes and tributes that come his way. This nonsense about it being all over the news is daft. It’s on the news cos people are interested.

Bert Trautmann would shudder at the spectacle...


What an absolute toughie I put him in the same bracket as Buck Shelford who carried on playing with an horrendous testicle injury or Ali boxing on against Ken Norton with a broken jaw etc, etc, etc.

Natural toughness when enhanced further by punishing (Trautmann's case) army and sports discipline/training or by doing a dangerous job, or by doing a physically demanding job really does turn some individuals into supreme physical and psychological specimens.

Love the words used to push someone on the verge of quitting " It's not the body and muscles that do the work, it's the mind".

He is so dour and has no charisma. I expect sports direct will bring out a clothing range now. He needs to get a grip and jp finds his crying in the press conference ridiculous.

Jackportis the brand. “A gifted poster”, “planet swans have a real talent on their hands in the name of Jackportis” sky sports 2018. . JP fully supports posters of LBG, mx orientation and ethnic minority groups.

A special breed. I always shy away from applying the noun ‘heroic’ to sporting endeavour as it seems woefully misapplied and quite ridiculous but there are exceptions and you’ve just listed three.

Have Civil Service ‘diversity courses’ rendered you constitutionally incapable of employing ‘Man’ as a descriptor even as you laud a male?

"a glorious insignificance" someone once said about sport. Murray won't have to go to food banks, work extra shifts with illness or ailments just to make ends meet.
I'm sure an insurance policy will pay him millions and provide his mother with more injections for that "permanent grin" she's had ever since he won anything major.
Tennis??? FFS

I’ve never been on a diversity course in my life.

I was referring to both men and women. Hence the use of the word “person”. I’d have though that was self evident.

You are very sensitive and perhaps due to your love in with Murray you fail to see that his tears are irrelevant to the rest of us.

Sensitive. Ha. Hark at her. His tears are irrelevant to me as well old son. He’ll be fine, as I said. Your pseudo caring nonsense about food banks is also entirely irrelevant.

I don’t think people are bitter but, the country is on the verge of going down the tubes and the BBC decide to headline the retirement of a Tennis player. The afternoon headline was for at least 10 minutes, the evening headline not so long.

Well, read through all posts on this thread, plenty of bitterness oozing out.

I do agree it shouldn't have had the main headline, but surely he will go down as one of the finest sportsmen this Country has produced
