    Well, it's quiet between races!

    Who said that in the Jenson Button a legend? thread.

    Murray is now number two in the world, the highest ever ranking for a British tennis player. And he's still young and can only get better.

    Well up in Scotland we much prefer our sportsmen to be low key, down to earth and straight talking. We like them to have a "take no bulls**t attitude" with the media. Colin McRae was exactly the same as Murray.

    We all know that Kimi's media personality is nothing like what his real life personalty, the few times that he has let the real Kimi show through in the media, he has shown to have a dry and very funny sense of humor.. But the way he plays the Media game has been very clever, he is by far the least hassled top driver.

    EXACTLY!

    98% on here fail to see Kimi's humour. IMO it gets funnier with everything he does in front of the media, I can just see their frustration growing...:D

    That tells you how bad the state of Tennis is these days.

    I Yearn for the days of Borg, McEnroe, Lendl, Noah, Clerc, etc. Connors was already slipping by this time.

    Noah, Clerc? Now they are players who won't be remembered. ;)

    Yes, Borg, McEnroe and Lendl were great players but now we have Federer, probably the best player ever, and Nadal who is up there with the best, and Murray has shown he can compete with them.
