In sense of humour shocker. After winning his Australian Open 3rd round match today (which was a sensational match by the way), he was interviewed on court and asked "What are you going to do now, go home and sleep or watch a movie?" Murray's answer? "No, I'm going to go and get hammered!" He was also asked about the Royal Wedding (I know, who cares), "Who looked better, Kate or Pippa?" With a wry smile and a glance at his girlfriend, "Pippa". He played the game today with a smile and a laugh, it was a fun match to watch.

Maybe Lendls sense of humour has rubbed off on him........Murray plays great tennis, but why cant I be bothered whether he wins or not, oh I remember, his anti England rant.

The funny thing is he was better than Djokovic, but he stood still and Djokovic didn't. That said I find tennis a tad boring.

I wouldn't say he stood still, Djoko won the Aus in 08 then suffered with lots of small injuries which meant he never was able to get into full swing for the whole season.

He's got a good taste in football teams as well

He's through to the quarter finals now after beating Kukushkin 6-1 6-1 1-0 ret. Will play either Tsonga or Nishikori in the quarters but he will be very fresh and on current form should beat either of them.

Yes while he didn't serve great he was far to good for Nishikori and so will play either Djokovic or Ferrer, most probably Djok who is a set up at the moment. One thing that could go massively in his favour for me is this is the by far the easiest route he has had to make a grand slam semi final.

Nadal looked good today against federer! Cant see Murray getting through to the final to play him but he would have to have the game of his life if he were to meet rafa!

Heres hoping the English hating Jock gets beaten....I cant do with him, remember folks it was Murray who said he didnt care who won as long as it wasnt england, or something like that.

Bloody hell, not that you hold a grudge or anything...... Let it go man. It must be weary having to dislike everything all the time.

Again Kenny it is not trolling, it is replying to people having a pop at me.

I dont like Murray, his anti english comments were wrong, he is a Scot so that is fine, but having a go at England was not fine - in my opinion
