After losing to Roger Federer in the Wimbledon final, Andy Murray won more fans for his demeanor then he ever could, playing tennis. In an otherwise shallow, self-centered, egotistical world, Murray showed heart, grit, determination and most importantly, a humbleness not often seen these days. Our society is completely “ID”, driven only by our instinctual need for pleasure. After his loss, Murray was forced to deal with great pain, coming very close to winning his first Grand Slam tournament, only to be denied by a brilliant display of tennis by Federer. Murray did something incredible yesterday, while the entire tennis loving world was watching and experiencing it. His greatness and humbleness were on display and he rose to the occasion. Today we have famous individuals such as the Kardashians, and Hiltons who are famous because of their last names. They did and do nothing and yet we watch and idolize them. We give them credence where none is deserved. There were always daddy’s rich girls out there. I grew up with many of them, but that’s as far as it went. Having a rich daddy and an ample behind is nice but not enough. Murray demonstrated why he is on the world stage. He can go anywhere, anytime and prove he’s one of the best. Think about why we truly watch or follow any famous person. It’s because they do something we can’t. How many of us could hit a 95 mile an hour fastball? How many can act like Meryl Streep or write songs and perform like Billy Joel? How many men have walked on the moon? All of these questions point at people who are extraordinary. Murray and Federer fall in to that category. The Kardashians, Paris Hilton, and Snooki Do Not! We need to bring back some perspective. We need to bring back the true “role model”. Thank you Andy Murray.
