So will the Sundays rue the fact they went for Murray in the final rather than Marray the Champion on the Front pages?

Shame for Andy. This will hurt...

I was really doubting that he would ever win another slam so this is very sweet. It's also nice that he tied and will break Sampras' record for having the most weeks at number one.

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

There was a show back in the Dinosaur Era,when American TV shows actually had some trace of decency(in stark contrast with the current Manure Mill),called 'Perry Mason',starring noted actor Raymond Burr.The program was a bit formulaic as you'd expect from a legal drama,yet the characters were watchable and the storylines were relatively good.There was a district attorney named Berger who virtually always opposed Mason's character,and he lost virtually every case as the innovative Perry found a way to prove his client's innocence(it may have been only once,but Berger DID win...though Mason's client turned out to be guilty in that case,IIRC).However,Berger always cane across as competent;he was NEVER a buffoon as with the Colonel Klink character from 'Hogan's Heroes',and Mason was genuinely respectful towards his frequent adversary(who presumably won tons of cases whenever Mason wasn't on the other bench).

Andy Murray reminds me of D.A. Berger quite a bit;unlike his multitude of thoroughly unlikable Swishy Punk comrades in the ATP,Murray conducts himself with class in a gentlemanly manner and,like Berger,he has the misfortune of being talented...but not quite good ENOUGH...to break through versus the true greats.There'll likely be a Weak Era very soon in the ATP(Top-to-bottom,it's quite weak NOW but that's offset by the greatness of Fed,Nole,Rafa),and Andy will probably win that Slam that'll cement his legacy in men's tennis history.It may even happen sooner as Fed has undeniably gone past his prime(though still remarkable)...and Rafa's knees might give out as a consequence of those supplements he took in his early years.If someone manages to upset Nole...possibly even Andy himself if he plays over his head...then he'll not only get off the schneid,he'll become a bona fide British(Scottish) sports hero.It wouldn't bother me if he got his Moment of Glory

The Fed Express is still alive. Murray was also good but once again he showed he is still missing the never-say-die attitude.

In re the Batman posts from the previous page,a comic aficionado once told me that the REAL killer of Bruce Wayne's parents was an ordinary,common thug named Joe Chill...and he died in prison,denying Batman any chance to take vengeance on him....not sure if that happened in Wayne's childhood or early adulthood...a comic fanatic would know best

Federer now leads the rankings with 11075 points to Djokovic's 11000, that's a 0.0068% difference!

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

A 75 point lead is a huge margin. 75 points is in fact a bit more points than Frederik Nielsen has earned in his three best singles tournaments of 2012

I'm still totally excited about his win. What a fairytale! He'll be celebrated in Kongens Have, CPH, tonight (shown on DR's "Aftenshowet").

(I think your percentage needs a x100 multiplication).

Yes, Danish media appears to have gone over-board times a 1,000. Apparently TV2 was comparing the Løchte's dubs win to Euro '92 and Magic 60's triumph in France in '96 ...

PS Interesting how 3 consecutive Olympic GOLD medals in women's handball is usually left out of Danish sporting glory.

I am just wondering, in order to get more power in her shots, maybe Caro could borrow some vitamin samples from Team Sky
