AFTER a memorable fortnight of tennis, we went into Hartlepool town centre to ask people what they thought of Andy Murray’s historic Wimbledon win.
KATHLEEN Baxter, who is 73 and lives in the West View area of Hartlepool, said: “I don’t like him.
“I don’t like tennis and I didn’t like what he said about the English football team.
“He said that because he’s not British, he’s Scottish.Well, we’re all part of the British Isles.”
NICKY Huntley, a 43-year-old health manager who lives in the Hart Lane area said: “It was an absolutely amazing game of tennis.
“When he clinched the first set we got a good feeling and he just didn’t give in. When he lifted that cup at the end of the match, I was in tears, it was a brilliant moment.”
JEAN Thompson, 70, from the Headland, said: “I didn’t see it at all.
“But I’ve been following the tournament and I watched it when I could.
“But I’m pleased Andrew won, just because of Great Britain really, but I’m not particularly keen on him as a person but I’m pleased he won.”
JASON Anderson, a 42-year -old radio DJ from the Grange Road area, said: “It was absolutely brilliant. “The whole weekend has been taken up by Murray mania and I thought it was absolutely fantastic.
“And to get a win late last night certainly put the UK – and I do say the UK – back on the map.”
