Gutted for Murray - a genuinely great tennis player who competed with the greatest tennis players ever. No small feat, and being able to measure himself up against the best gives clarity to how great he was. Arguably works in his favour that he competed along with geniuses and although he was the bonafide master that the other three were, I think his underdog status and his ability to be in with that crowd for so long is testament to his tenacity and spirit.
But it’s his personality I’ll miss too - for someone popularly known as a dullard, he’s always been bang on about the more topical conversations in the sport and his social media activity shed light on a pretty funny guy. Just a really normal guy, without a doubt the best sportsman Britain has ever produced.
Second only to Ronnie O'Sullivan IMO. Fantastic career, and just an unreal fighter of a man.
Fair argument, I definitely wouldn’t begrudge Ronnie top spot. Fascinating character and born genius.
Djokovic was great today, but I have to say, Federer is just ridiculous. 38 years of age, father of four, taking a prime Djoker to 12-12 in the fifth in the longest Wimbledon final ever, playing shots no-one else can. Greatest sportsman of all time, for me.
Would I ever leave this company? Look, I’m all about loyalty. In fact, I feel like part of what I’m being paid for here is my loyalty. But if there were somewhere else that valued loyalty more highly… I’m going wherever they value loyalty the most.

In a statement released Monday through his management team, Djokovic declined to address whether he opposed vaccines in general. He focused his opposition on the issue of whether a Covid-19 vaccination, which has not been developed yet, would be necessary for travel. He also made it clear that he was intent on exploring options other than vaccination, but he did not rule out accepting one if necessary.
“I am no expert, but I do want to have an option to choose what’s best for my body,” he said. “I am keeping an open mind, and I’ll continue to research on this topic because it is important and it will affect all of us.”
He added: “To be honest, just like the rest of the world I am a bit confused. Despite having access to information and resources, I am left in doubt about what could be the best thing to do.”

So it turns out Novak is a moron. It's unfortunate, because I wanted him to end up with the most majors, but can't support him anymore. Just flouting his bullshit anti-science views to the detriment of everyone else.
