Al­ways set to end in tears for our Andy

Sunday Mail (UK) - - Lorna Hughes -

Re­mem­ber the days when Andy Mur­ray was branded a dour Scot who re­fused to show any emo­tion?

Derided by some for lack­ing in per­son­al­ity or hu­mour?

The boy from Dun­blane charmed not just by win­ning Wim­ble­don and pick­ing up a cou­ple of Olympic gold medals but by his tears. Tears when he lost, tears when he won.

And a pas­sion and tal­ent for the game that has made him the world’s great­est ten­nis player and landed him a knight­hood.

Through so­cial me­dia, we saw his sense of hu­mour whether that was tak­ing the mickey out of him­self or hav­ing a good-na­tured pop at his mum, Judy.

So when Andy, 31, an­nounced his re­tire­ment after a decade at the top, of course he was go­ing to cry.

And we love him even the more for it.
