Murray: a British or Scottish victory?

- That's it! A British winner.


- He's Scottish and British. Like I'm English and British.


- Will you tell Alex Salmond? Well done, the lad from Dunblane.


- He's just described himself as a "British winner".


- With the media, if you win it's axiomatic you are British (English almost). If you lose, you are either Scottish, Irish or Welsh ... George Best and Alex Higgins were also British when things were triumphant. They also ended up as losing Irishmen.


- I couldn't give a stuff that he's Scottish. He's British: we have a British winner, and he's a worthy champion. End of.


- I'm relieved that he's won. It means all the trendies who became cyclists last year will stop blocking up the roads and go off playing tennis for the next year or so.


- Give the bloke credit where credit's due. Three straight sets against the world number one in sweltering conditions - that's an achievement by anyone's standards. Here is a man worthy of being called British rather than the ugly, miserable Scottish wanker he would have been described as if he'd lost. He justifiably won the tournament. So fair dues. I get the impression that much of it is about how hard you can punch the air when you win a game, but I'm not an expert.
