Olympics have been a fluke for him.
And Wimbedon was a stroke of luck...
He's overrated just because the British press hype him up as much as they do. Of course they're going to do that...
Can they really focus on his skills, instead of talking about his own tennis kit brand, his properties in Miami and London, millions earned, his castle/hotel Cromlix in Scotland....
We are tired of being sucked into the world of celebrities...
Tim Henman never made it , but what a gentleman, what a great player, what a style!

The Olympics were in Great Britain. In London.
Wimbledon is in Great Britain. In London.
And he played before a huge, partisan crowd.
That says it all.

Sunder, you have forgotten his 'sushi' diet!
C'on, that is the key!

Relax! Rejoyce!
Now we have been informed by hyped media even about the rates of his hotel/castle in Scotland!
The opening night at the Cromlix (April 1st, 2014) the rates will start at GBP 210 ($334)...
What a great treat from soon to be ATP 5th ranked Scot!

It is incredible how the Scot manages to get column inches when he's not playing tennis.
Since he signed up with Simon Fuller, everything he does makes cheesy headlines.
Now there is the new... thing of his training with Jose Mourinho's Chelsea!
Tomorrow they will show us the surgery scar on his back.
The day after tomorrow, they will inform us about the menu of his dogs...
Media crap.

It's so funny (but also rather boring) how BBC keeps trumpetting about its Sport Personality of the Year Award and
why the Scot- who is the hot favourite - should get it...It has been more than 6 months now!
On the other side of the Atlantic, the astute Scot is enjoying great time and great weather and great company on the fantastic, sunny, warm spot of Miami Beach...He has declared to the world that he won't go and get the award...I do not blame him..Why should he come back??... for two days, facing the hassle of an uncomfortable travel, the horrible British weather, the British airports' mess et all...
So he cannot take 2 days out to aknowledge this tribute.., a pointless trophy only the BBC cares about...
That shows what a clever, true sportman he is...
But if this award doesn't mean that much to him, then why should the British bother voting for him?
It is simple like that: no show, no trophy!!
One request to the BBC: do not broadcast again your documentary "The Man behind the Racquet".
It stinks, now!

What Mr Salvatores writes is not entirely correct!
According to other well informed sources..."Rooms are priced from 200 for a 'small double', rising to 595 for a suite. All rates include a Scottish breakfast and the hotel will also boast an Albert Roux restaurant, Chez Roux. Cromlix is already fully booked for the weekend of the 2014 Ryder Cup".
Wow, this is very intereresting indeed.
AM's fans, rejoyce!

In all honesty, he hasn't played that much, after his win..One/two matches only...But he has been always able to make daily cheesy headlines, thanks to his partner in business, Simon Fuller, the manager of Jennifer Lopez and David Beckham...
Just to put it nicely, the Scot had just nothing more than a procession of journeymen & grass court stooges
lined up for him all the way to the Wimbledon final.
It would be disturbingly disappointing if an absurdly overlooked athlete like Mo Farah will lose to the tennis player.
If Mo Farah loses out for second consecutive year, it will only re-confirm that the SPOFTY award is little more than a 20th century relic, that DESPERATELY needs to be put out of its misery.
We will be very happy to see the Scot happy in Miami Beach...without the trophy!

So true!

...wow, speaking about easy money!!
He has just signed a multi-million pound sponsorship deal with Standard Life from Edinburgh, Scotland...which keeps his position as one of the most bankable sports stars in Britain and is added to the lucrative deals he has with Adidas, Head and the Swiss watch brand, Rado.
I am wondering if these sponsors are doing the right thing, or just betting on the wrong horse..!
Shortly we'll be knowing it!
