I should perhaps inject here that I kind of like Andy Murray. He's very grounded and work extremely hard and carries the weight on his shoulders from the entire British media well.
He has a shot on Sunday. That said, I hope that Federer wins because I'm a Fed fan. But people in the UK should be proud of the guy. He always gives it his best shot and he's having a great career but just like with Henman before him some people are always on his case. Why? Why not not criticize the other British guys that come a long way behind him and never do anything instead of someone who's been a top four player for years? If they think they can do a better job let them pick up a racquet and do it themselves. I wonder what amazing things they have done in their lifes themselves other than to nag about those who are actually out there doing it.
