Why not? He's Scotland's Britain's best tennis player (tennis being a hugely popular sport) possibly ever. Sportsmen who have achieved less have got knighthoods (looking at you, Clive Woodward).

Then again people have achieved more without getting a knighthood too.

There's usually a reason though.

Plus, you've got to give something to the Scottish on occasion, yeah? Gordon Brown is gone, give them this. Keeps them out the way, which is better for everyone.

Look at you always looking for a bite. Give credit where it's due.

Going into the final Murray had played one more set than Novak. Both players have had a five set match to tire them and Novak was off court resting up hours before Murray had finished his semi final which only last one set less but finished much later.

I'd take that bet. If Kelly Holmes can become a dame for winning 800 and 1500 metre olympic gold at the same olympics but do very little else in her injury prone career, Murray for winning Olympics/US/Wimbledon in the same 12 month period definately can.

You can't look at it like that. 

2 Days before the final, Novak plays the longest semi final and Murray finishes his match under lights. Plus he faced a bloke who keeps points short which means he isn't going to fatigue. You bring so many stats into this and tennis is not a stats sport. 

Murray hasn't had two grand slams handed to him. He's won two grand slams that I say 8 guys on the current tour would of won if they had the same draw. 

Being knighted for that is so stupid. Wait until he flushes out a a Grand Slam like legends has done. He's not even in the best of his era and has one two... TWO Grand Slams.

Obviously most of the country were playing with themselves over the fact that Andy Murray finally won wimbledon

Then David Cameron the moron started talking about how he deserved a knighthood for winning

And now it would appear that some people have completely lost the plot over it:


The thing is - that same bloke has also told his mates that if England win the Ashes he is going to get a team photo on the other cheek Wacko
