Like Murray you mean? When he lost 4 slams, he did so like a true gentleman. When he won his first, he was utterly humble through the entire procedure.
He gets angry at himself when he loses a point - and yes, he's vocal about it. As much as we would prefer if all sportsmen kept their emotions completely inside, that isn't possible.
McEnroe was called 'The Brat' - and he had similar criticism to those you're giving Murray.
But come the end of the match, Murray is a complete gent whether he wins or loses - I don't see why we should berate his inability to keep his game emotions in check.
