    Mine was when he beat Djoker at the Cinci 08. Djoker can speak Italian, German, French, English, Serbian and Croatian, Murray can speak English, Scottish, Irish and Welsh

    That year he kept failing at the slams despite being one of the favorites to win at every one.

    That was pretty great.

    It's either when he beat Wawrinka under the lights and roof at Wimbledon, or when he beat Nadal at the US Open.

    The comeback vs Gasquet was pretty epic.

    Also the win vs Roddick Wimby 06, and win vs Fed Cincy 06 were great moments. But the Gasquet match would have to be my favorite.

    The most heartwarming Andy Murray moment was when he was seen yelling 'come on!' to Posh in the birthing room right before little Romeo was born.

    When he was knocked out of the WTF in RR because Delpo got just a high enough percentage of games won.

    Wimbledon 4th round against Gasquet was probably my favorite. Also loved watching him the the 08 USO series.

    My favourite Andy Murray moment is still to happen. To date, it was passing Nadal to win the USO semi in 08.

    Murray speaks Welsh?

    Whenever he is in a crosscourt forehand duel with someone within the top 25 except Radek Stepanek.

    Or to be serious, the match against Wawrinka was a thriller although I rooted for the Swiss.

    ????? Maybe Scottish, but Irish and Welsh. Definitely not...

    Why is this relevant anyway?

    Wtf, Murray can speak Irish, Scottish, and Welsh!? surely that's not true... they're basically dead languages.

    They are all flavours of Gaelic - Murray speaks none of them. Some might argue he would recognise Scots, but he speaks English and only English as far as I'm aware.

    My favorite moment was when he lost his mind after a call went his way in Monte Carlo when playing Davydenko.

    It was actually Monte Carlo. The ball was way long and Murray thought the umpire said it was in. Very funny that was i agree.

    Murray initially thought that the umpire had called the ball in, and therefore he tried to explain his case to the umpire. However, when he realized that the umpire did indeed call the ball out, Murray stopped asking about it. Nothing wrong with that.

    Some of the comments in that youtube video are really pathetic and ridiculous, and I hope the video gets taken down soon.

    I believed Murray was annoyed that his mark was wrong even though the umpire said the maek he showed was out too. It seems more funny this way like McENroe moment! I believe he was obsessed about the mark. Like any perfectionist (murray), as he screams and ger furstrated in matches since it is not going his perfect pushing way.
    I believe that incident just reinforces his atiitude towards each ball.

    His semi final win over Nadal at the 08 USO for sure. One of my favorite matches from that year. Too bad he does not play that aggressive all the time.

    I'm with you on that.

    I also quite liked the Federer vs Del Potro match at the WTF where Delpo reached the semifinals with that one game advantage over Murray. A great Murray moment because he was eliminated but I didn't have to look at him.

    One of my favorites as well for two reasons -

    A: Murray demonstrates his mastery of the vernacular with the following tweet:
