Is the ATP 4th ranked tennis player too overrated and overexposed in U.K. or simply is Britain becoming small, isolated, populist, uninfluential and not relevant anymore on the world's stage?

Britain is going through a massive economic crisis, identity crisis, political crisis, cultural crisis...
We all know that when it occurs, in any part of the world, that leads people to 'cult of personality', to "hero" worship, that "it is established by mass media and propaganda".Wikipedia
The same happens for Bollywood stars in India.
Both Andy Murray and Bollywood actors are famous and worshipped within their own countries' borders only.
It is a provincial, insular state of mind.

Relax! 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!

The No.6th ranked Scot is at the end of his journey..
He will never go back to his previous ranking.
And as for Davis Cup forthcoming tie against the US team, despite all fanfare and brouhaha from British media and the BBC, it will surely be a scorching and undelible defeat!

meh says:
With the appointment of former Queen's Club and Aegon tournement chief Chris Kermode at the very top of ATP, things are going even more and more hyped for the snooty and petulant Scot.
So it was no surprise to see the toothy unplesant grin of the Scot, whishing "Happy Valentine" from the webpage of ATP today.
He doesn't care about human feelings, he cares about money only.
So why did they choose AM to express these loving feelings? Why HIM? And not Del Potro or Berdych?
We were expecting this PR stunt from Mr ATP any day now.
This is utterly disheartening!
This shoud be stopped now.

Well, he has been the Managing Director of the season-ending Barclays ATP World Tour Finals at the O2 arena in London over the past five years, against the will of most of foreign tennis associations and the top tennis playes, Djokovic and Nadal most notably.
In the end, the choice of London for so many years is not impartial, but very favorable and profitable to the British players, who can play "at home", in front of their home crowds.
And the Scot and his team will benefit from it the most.
Besides, the London-based ATP can help a lot...So, it's not possible to dismiss too easily all rumors about manipulation of draws and results in the future in favour of the Murray team.
