Fuck, gotta throw Shawn White in there too... Dominates snowboarding and also elite skateboarder, second to do a 900 and all and I believe he's semi pro surfing?

Shawn  White too!  100%
I know he's a rad skater too!  Didn't know about him surfing though? 
I follow surfing big time, and never heard a thing.  He probably shreds, but he's defiantly not semi pro!

Shit, I had no idea hey.  Should be interesting to see if he does qualify.  Only 32 spots on the tour.  And it all depends on how he does in a 35 minute heat too.

Anybody watched Wimbledon today? Crazy 6 hour semi final! And then just now Djokovic-Nadal... Amazing match, but it got suspended due to a fucking curfew?!

Yeah can’t play past 11pm because it’s in a residential area which is fair enough imo. 

I haven’t seen any of it with the wrld cup and no Murray. Can’t be arsed, final will be shit too

I haven’t watched a single game this year because of the football and lack of Murray. 

Delighted Serena lost though. Fucking hate her

fucking gutted. A tough watch. Must be awful having your career taken away from you 😢

Absolutely gutted mate. The greatest British sportsman in my eyes. What he achieved in this era of players is absolutely phenomenal.

I love a bit of Murray, hate those pathetic wankers who hate him because he made a joke about the England football team losing 10 years ago. 

Feel for him, he should still be at his peak, be interesting to see how he gets on but fear he could crash out early doors which would be sad.

Must be hard to have your career taken from you by injury. At the end of the day,  no-one can take away what he has achieved, he's been a true champion of the sport and has helped increase national interest in tennis again. 

At least he has time now to spend with his family and who knows, maybe a career in coaching awaits? I'm sure there are plenty of players willing to work with him!

he sounded like he’s going to get a hip replacement in his post match interview. Will take him time to get back. Is it worth it? If he did it and won a grand slam in say 3/4 years it be the most incredible Hollywood movie wouldn’t it.

Think the surgery is just more for better quality of life moving forward. Reckon his career is over now. 

Great fight today though. Always had that in abundance mind you. What a player and what a career.

Britain’s best ever sportsman? He is for me. 

Shame he wasn’t around in the generation before his, all those years of watching Henman fail, Murray would of cleaned up, but then he’ll always be remember as one of the big four. Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray. 

Who’s the next big star coming through? Can’t say I pay much attention outside the grandslams

Easily our greatest ever sportsman. 

Kyle Edmund is for sure our next guy to make it to the top. Already playing at such a high level and seems to have the same level of focus and commitment as Murray. After that from what I’ve seen Cam Norrie looks promising. Only really watched him in Davis Cup matches but there seems to be real promise there. Other than that it’s just a few bang average kids. They’re still young though so can’t say for sure.

He has a welsh father. Fuck me im claiming him as welsh 😎. Supports Liverpool though so he’s not perfect.
