No tears, please

The Scotsman - - Perspective / Letters To The Editor -

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.
