I like Andy Murray.
It's extremely sad when any professional sports person, man or women has to give up their chosen sport, as a result of their body not able to keep pace with their mind.
He's given so much of his life to tennis, his reputation and legacy will go on for decades to come.
Reminds me of Bellamy and his knees. I felt it every time he ran. He was like Arter until the very end.
He's alright by me.
I'm intoxicated Gareth.
He survived the Dunblane school shooting when he was 8 by hiding behind a desk.
If I'd gone through something like that the only thing I would have achieved would be my own seat in the local Weatherspoon's.
Fair fucks to him.
He'd give it all away for Scotland to be independent probably.
Oh no you didn't
I was talking to Paul Stridgeon (Wales Rugby Fitness Coach) the other night at the Vale, about Sam Warburton's premature retirement, for him the disappointment is balanced by new opportunities that have opened up as a pundit and an after dinner speaker.
Hopefully Murray's profile is so high that he will be able to carry on in a second career after professional tennis, in some capacity or another.
Murray should just get a better job.
Is that an early entry for this never happened I see as well.
I'd be surprised if punditry and after dinner speaking are balanced with captaining your country.
I think that you are absolutely right. It can't be an easy transition for any professional sportsperson. But it's a lot better than walking the dog and playing golf, lost in a world of your own thoughts on what might have been. These individuals have amazing positive mental attitudes. If they didn't, they would never have reached the peak of their chosen professions.
I remember talking to Bob Marley once about petitioning F.W de Klerk to put an end to apartheid should he ever come to power. He said it was a shame because then F.W de Klerk would be out of a job. I simply informed Bob that de Klerk would make a few quid on the after dinner circuit. He was onboard after that. He phoned de Klerk and after getting nowhere with him handed me the phone. By the end we had agreed a plan going forward.
Millions in the bank just for hitting a ball over a net and away from your opponent
Must be heart breaking.
has he ever been to Halifax on a cold Tuesday night in February? no. fuck him
