Andy Murray the Cinders and Shrinking Matilda

What an amazing a year it’s been for English game. First there was the happiness of the Olympics. Then, at that point, our cricketers won in India interestingly since Chicken Tikka Masala turned out to be essential for our public eating routine. Last month Justin Rose, a person who wouldn’t precisely strike you as a top notch athlete on the off chance that you met him in the bar, won the US Open golf – whenever a British chap first had won the occasion for quite some time. Furthermore, obviously, this end of the week has topped the parcel: The English and Irish Lions totally pulverize Australia to win their most memorable series starting around 1997.

It sent shivers up the spine and a tear to the eye

Then Andy Murray – a man we’ve watched mature from a gifted Paraguay-supporting Scot to all English Olympic legend – won Wimbledon; the primary Brit to do as such beginning around 1936 (or was it 1836?).I’ve generally loved Murray since he’s the direct opposite of what a current games legend is typically similar to: there’s not a single bling or brylcreem to be seen; you could say he’s the counter Shane Watson. He’s likewise refreshingly uneager to satisfy his crowd; subsequently I was happy he won Wimbledon. Be that as it may, after every one of the exciting brandishing days we’ve delighted in as of late, triumph was practically anticipated.

When the Lions won, a Murray triumph out of nowhere appeared to be more feasible. Similarly as we found in London 2012, competitors in totally various games appear to take care of off every others’ prosperity. It wasn’t such a long time ago that the Aussies were luxuriating in their post-Sydney Olympics conceit. Ian Thorpe was overwhelming in the pool; they dispatched the Lions and broke our hearts; and their cricket crew was one of the most amazing ever. They had Warne, the Waugh’s, and ridiculous Glenn McGrath and his 5-0 forecasts. The git.

Be that as it may the boot’s on the other foot nowadays

English game is on a high, while Australia are presently the most incredible on the planet at, blunder, definitively nothing. Other than swimming, are the Australians better than us at anything? We won’t count rugby association in light of the fact that the Aussies have an unnatural fixation on that game. They can have it assuming that they truly care about: we’ll take the code with more nuance and intricacy; the one the wide range of various rugby playing countries care about.

Moreover, every time it seems as though the Aussies may be edging their noses before us in a specific game, the Brits come flooding back. Adam Scott won the Experts; Justin Rose won the US Open – and Justin didn’t actually require a dodgy putter that is going to get prohibited to do it either (sorry, Adam).Britain even beat Australia in netball as of late – for the absolute very first time. What’s more, we need to say, assuming we had climate half as great as the land down under (and oceans you can really swim in without getting hyperthermia) we’re almost certain we’d upset that swimming strength as well.
