The English have long regarded Murray as purely Scottish on the basis that he would never make it to the Wimbledon final, is a bit dour and made a casual remark that he supported "anyone but England" in the World Cup. Then, under enormous pressure, he won the semi-final, causing many to suddenly like him. That was followed by a painful attempt to smile, the sheer effort of which caused a small tear to fall from his eye. The smile didn’t quite make it, but he hadn't seen his bank balance by then.
In fact, Murray looked more miserable than he ever has before, perhaps suggesting that success doesn't suit him. Luckily, he's meeting the man who many regard as the best tennis player of all-time in the final. Roger Federer is looking for a record-equalling seventh Wimbledon title. If Murray does win though there are fears it will bring on an on court clinical depression.
Despite being the best British player most of us have ever seen, Murray has struggled to find a place in heart of many sports' fans. Tim Henman was more popular, despite being nowhere near as good and having the personality of tumbleweed. Here, The Daily Slap offers some suggestions that might bring him closer to his people:
• Dye your hair blonde
• Get a fake tan
• Date someone from TOWIE
• Get a boob job
• Win everything all the time
• Become someone else who's better looking
We hope that helps. And best of British luck!!!
