The Scotsman Andy Murray won another thriller on the Centre Court yesterday. Murray was born in Glasgow in 1987 and is a professional tennis player - current British No. 1. He is currently ranked No. 4 in the world.
Murray identifies himself as "Scottish, but also British". Prior to Wimbledon 2006, Murray caused some public debate when he was quoted as saying he would "support anyone but England" at the 2006 World Cup. He received large amounts of hate mail on his website as a result. It was also reported that Murray had worn a Paraguay shirt on the day of England's World Cup match with the South American team.
The match against Ivan Ljubicic yesterday was exciting til the end. On Wimbledon´s official web side (www.wimbledon.com) their journalist writes: When the last set went to the tiebreak, the noise inside Centre Court was ratcheted up another level and finally the man carrying British hopes of a first men's singles title closed out the match and gave himself a full weekend to prepare for challenges still to come.
Go Murray go!
