Andy Murray

So Andy Murray won against Roger Federer in yesterday’s Master’s. Why is it that when Scotland gets a top player in tennis, I find it somehow very difficult to warm to him? I am delighted by his win, of course, and wish him well. But what a difference from Monty Panesar……..I shall be watching the box avidly to enjoy his magical spin-bowling today in the last of the current Test against Pakistan. And he manages to come across as likeable and enthusiastic in interviews.

Addicted to sport? Nonsense – just taking advantage of the excuse to do very little.

    This is the first time I have ever looked at a blog – I got fed up listening to people going on about them. Couldn’t resist yours because of the mention of May Sarton and David Guterson. I enjoyed the read – thanks! Ann

    Thanks, Ann, Hope you will call back many times.

    It’s a sad fact that top sportspeople are not necessary the nicest individuals. Competitive instinct is not all that compatible with being a nice guy. Isn’t it good, though, when you see someone with both attributes.
    I love the folksy nature of your weblog, Freda.

    Thanks Bricky for dropping by; my own competitive instinct is lessening as I get older and (hopefully) wiser.
