IS the Wimbledon crowd finally warming to Andy Murray? It appears so and his support during this year's Wimbledon has been superb. Thousands of people cheered him to victory in the quarter-finals on Wednesday and he is expected to have even more support today in his semi-final clash. I am always amazed when I mention Andrew Murray and the reaction I get from the British public. He will never be forgiven by some for saying; I support two teams; Scotland and whoever is playing England! Now I suppose it was meant as a joke but it was a bad mistake which has cost Murray dear. But he is rapidly making-up for this small mistake. The fact that he won the tennis Gold medal in last year´s Olympic Games and his emotional speech after his defeat by Roger Federer in last year´s Wimbledon final, has struck a chord with Britain´s army of tennis fans. Scotland should be rightly proud of Murray because afterall he did win the U.S. Open and is on course to reach the Wimbledon finals once again. But in the same way as the English blast Murray for his two teams the Scottish hit back saying that Murray is British when he is winning and Scottish when he losses! It is all good banter. But let us remember that without Murray Britain's involvement in Wimbledon would have ended with Laura Robson on Monday. The fact that a British player is through to the semi-finals and is the world number 2 is worth cheering.
