Is this the Andy Murray who's a proud scot except when he wants the support at Wimbledon, when he suddenly becomes Briitish

Please don't make him a Sir until he finishes playing...suspect he'd be embarrassed by it for now.

Can`t stand the bloke why what harm`s he done you Just remember this, as a kid he along with other children including his Brother and Teachers   had to hide in classrooms and be smuggled from the school from that Maniac Thomas Hamilton who killed 16 in the Dunblane massacre  I think it would make you look and feel a bit off handish if it happened to you.

I agree - and as for Sports Personality of the Year - the clues in the title, you should have a personality

Just another stick to beat him with.

If that's the case someone like Flintoff or Swann would have won the award year after year.

He's a boring bloke and there's something about him I just don't like but his accomplishments in tennis shouldn't be underestimated he's had a phenomenal career to date and in an era that has been so competitive.

Exactly how I feel about him

As a tennis player I've nothing but admiration but he just comes across as a dour Scot to me and there is something I can stand about him

His mum is the same, when she was on Strictly you could see where he gets his amazing personality from!!

I am fully aware of the facts wba13 but I am entitled to my opinion. Your reasoning is similar to the Saido story about what he has been through with the loss of his dad and the civil war, and we don't tolerate that well on here these days......

I don't like him because of his early English jibes......wearing a Portugal shirt when we were due to play them. Fully aware that he is a very lucky person to survive Dunblane, I do not need to be informed of that - but I can't stand the bloke as a person. Top tennis player though - I will give him that.

I don't like Lewis Hamilton either - spoilt brat! Come on Nico!!!!

One man's poison is another man's cure.  I guess it depends what we mean by personality.  If we mean a never ending reservoir of guts and determination then Murray's the man.  If we mean the ability to drink beer and be personable then Flintoff's the geezer.  You must mean Tufnell rather than Swann?  Even my Mrs enjoys listening to Tuffers and she hates cricket!

I don't think they should be judged on a personality - it should be judged on their dedication, quality and achievements in their respective field - Andy Murray has excelled, yet again, in an era where Tennis has never been so strong.

I also quoted Swann ahead of Tuffnell as Swann knew how to hold a bat and a bowl a ball ha. Great clip though you have provided - another funny one was Henry Blofield talking about putting a rubber on - I think Tuffnell may have been in the commentary box for that too.

or the same Andy Murray who is British when he wins but Scottish when he loses. It goes both ways.

Being Scottish and British aren't mutually exclusive.

I am all for English (and to a lesser extent Brits) doing well in their sports, but why oh why can't we have more likeable stars like Jess Ennis.

Hamilton and Murray undoubtedly have talent, but they both just get on my t1ts
