Each week Vikram Bodas ’18 and Sam Forstner ’18 will tackle a controversial issue in the sports world.

On a sunny Sunday afternoon, Andy Murray, the scruffy haired Scott from Dunblane, lifted the Wimbledon Trophy for the second time. This gives him a total of three Grand slam titles. Impressive? Yes. Upsetting that he only has three? YES. Why? Here are a few facts you may not know about Mr. Murray — he has made it to 11 Grand Slam finals. He has been to the final at every single Grand Slam: Wimbledon, Roland Garros, US Open and Australian Open. He has given every concession speech there is to give.
