No tears, please
I find it hard to sympathise with “new men” crying over the result of a sports contest or some other disappointment.
In a long, successful pro career Andy Murray won the US Open with repeat wins at Wimbledon and the Olympics. Most pros retire in their early 30s and he’s made over $100 million. A profound sense of gratitude was surely more appropriate than yet again bursting into tears.
