      Whilst he may not be everyone's cup of Rosy and he certainly isn't the most glamorous or flamboyant player on tour, Britain (or Scotland if you prefer) has a new World number 1 in Andy Murray.

      Whatever you think of the bloke I think he desrves a great deal of praise and respect for being the first Brit to ever achieve this status, by beating Novak Djokovic yesterday evening in the final of the ATP world series of the top 8 players in the world. he has lost only a couple of matches since the French Open final in May including winning Wimbledon and the Olympic gold medal along the way.

      This is some achievement, well done Murray.

      I prefer playing tennis to watching it, although as a kid the Borg/ Mcenroe rivalry was great tv. Most of my life Britain has been pony at tennis on the world stage so hats off to the guy for achieving what he has.

      Brilliant final in Australia yesterday morning, between Federer and Nadal. 35 and 30 years old respectively, 5 sets, 3 and half hours. Great to watch respect to both of them.

      FIFA will ultimately cave in to the highest bidder, whether they be in China, Middle East Russia or America. It's shocking really and a disgrace at best.
