Andy Murray

Another first as the world No 1 wins the prestigious Sports Personality of the Year for the third time, which is a record in itself since no athlete has achieved that until now.

But has he won a set of tennis with a broken arm? See below.

No 1

#Tennis #MurrayDjokovic

I'm falling out of love with falling.

I fell down in the first set last Friday and fell on my left arm.

I fall over a lot playing tennis because I chase a lot of lost-cause balls, in the spirit of this man.

Subsequently I found out that I had a double fracture of my left wrist but since I am not left handed, I was able to continue playing and win a set. This gave me bragging rights with which to taunt my adversaries. They know who they are.

But it’s not all about me.

Murray knows better than to taunt his opponents with any more than the regulation fist pump which is of course mandatory in tennis, but a problem in any other context.

Andy Murray is not one of my adversaries. He is however now the "undisputed" World Number 1. Murray reaffirmed that status at the 02 by beating 5 top-8 players in 6 days, including an unexpectedly comfortable win against Novak Djokovic in the final.

When I say "undisputed" there remains some residual unexplained myopic disregard for Murray's achievements amongst some club players which I fail to understand. They know who they are.

Already I have heard from the Myopics that Murray had only won because Rafa and Federer were injured. This theory is not supported by the true statistical facts of course.

But have any of the players mentioned here won a set with a broken arm. Not even Andy Murray. It can’t be done, surely?!

Andy Murray’s women.

The classic pre-Raphaelite model and noble figurehead, and some call it effing dancing.
