It was an awesome match. Men’s tennis is now a 4-way battle for the top.
Congrats to Andy Murray and Scotland.

It will be a British honour. He’s been supported by the whole of the UK in this and he has been representing Britain, not just Scotland.
Interesting fact here is that in 1996, he was one of the kids who narrowly missed being slaughtered by the madman Thomas Hamilton during the Dunblane Massacre.
Welcome to “All Things Scottish”... if it’s not Scottish, IT’S CRAP!
