Whaddya reckon to Andy Murray as a DL pick for 2016? I know he's healthy, but he keeps choking.

I'm really tired of bore-face Murray so didn't cheer him on today. First time I've completely skipped a Grand Slam final since about 2010 I think.

 

I mean, you'd think that all the money he has and being the one who finally ended that long drought for British men at Wimbledon in 2013 would put some fire in the guy's belly. So so sick of hearing his incredibly fucking dreary voice he's never been half-as-appealing as good old Henman. There's a choker you can love, like Jimmy White.

Although it's not completely Murray's fault cos the game itself has just become very dull and robotic, Henman was the last gasp of the awesome serve-and-volley era.  Still can't stand the dull prick though.

He turned up as a pointless answer on Pointless this weekend, so - despite the gold medal winning performance - he didn't make that much national impact, then.

 

 

I vaguely remember him being seen around a lot with Princess Anne, before she married Mark Phillips.  My mum thought he was lovely, and was disappointed when it turned out that it was Mark who was in the saddle.
