Own goals happen aren't that rare of an occurence in soccer. Andres Escobar's only problem was that he screwed up a drug lord's betting line. He was very well-loved there.

R19 I'm sure you meant first to make it to a Wimbledon final in decades.
And he's not an embarrassment for that.
Crying in four finals is pushing it, though. This latest cry was touching and understandable but the other three? Most men and women players have taken their losses with a bit more dignity.

"Andy Murray (if he must be deemed embarrassing it's for the Scots, the rest of Britain is quite 'meh' about him)"
How silly - did you actually watch television and read the newspapers? "Plucky Brit", "Britain's Best Hope" etc
Strangely, it was only after he lost that he was returned to the status of "Scottish Loser"
In a tournament commented on (here in the UK) by Sue Barker, John Lloyd, Andrew Castle and Tim Henman...?

R28 your defense is not very coherent. You're surely not saying those commentators called him a plucky Brit or a Scottish loser...
Of course they said he was Britain's best hope, but that's not a great compliment considering the rest of the field.
The reality is countries that put expectations on individual athletes should be disappointed in themselves. It completely warps careers. Let poor Andy actually win a slam before you expect him to win another one.

I agree with OP regarding Andy 'Misery' Murray. He has the ultimate entitled attitude and is a cry baby. No one at BBC Sport will mention the fact that he won Wimby the year that had the most shock results of seeded players getting knocked out early and a record number of players pulling out injured. He didn't even play a seeded player until the final.
As for others:-

R71 Actually Murray played 3 seeds before the final #32 Robredo, #20 Youzhny and #24 Janowicz. Beating Djokovic in the final was enough to justify it being a deserved win anyway. I always think if your the only one to win 7 matches you deserve it. Not the winner's fault if other top players aren't good enough to get through their matches.
In tennis terms Tim Henman was always a bit more embarrassing in the UK but only because the media put him under so much pressure despite the fact he was a decent top 10 player but clearly never top 3 or 4. It was obvious Murray was better than Henman ever was and he handled the pressure well.
