As the Wimbledon lawn tennis championship gets underway later today, reigning champion, Andy Murray, has the added pressure on his shoulders of knowing, that should he fail to get past his first round match against World No. 134, Alexander Bublik from Kazakhstan this afternoon, he will be stripped of his ‘Proud Brit’ status by the English media and will revert to being dubbed ‘the surly Scot’ once again.
The Whitechapel Whelk’s sports correspondent, Danny SoZ, was under no illusions last night: “Listen, if Murray gets humiliated by this no-mark foreign idiot in the first round, myself and my colleagues will absolutely hammer the Scotch chump from arseole to Saturday.
