In all my years of playing various sports, and watching them in parks and stadia and on TV, I don’t think anything compares to my delight in Andy Murray’s achievement of finally becoming the world’s best male tennis player.
As Kevin Mitchell says, “It is a towering achievement that the world No1 is essentially no different to the tennis player the game first became aware of over a decade ago.”
Murray beats the Ukrainian Sergiy Stakhovsky 6-4, 6-2 to win the boys’ title at the 2004 US Open.
I scheduled this post before a certain racist misogynist trumped almost everything else in the news this past week. Like millions throughout the world, I’ll continue the good fight against all exploiters of the wong cilik because I know of no other way. And that is exemplified through the discipline and character demonstrated down the years by Andy Murray, I only occasionally wish that my causes were similarly rewarding in a financial sense!
