image for Tennis: Scottish Man almost British after five set classic
The result of a tennis match can decide your description in newspapers

In an amazing match that finished at almost 1am local time, Andy Murray narrowly missed out on being labelled 'British' by newspapers with editorial offices in England (and predominantly London) but is still scottish after a five set defeat to Novak Djokovic in the semi-final of the Australian Open semi-final.


Murray was 'firmly scottish' after losing the first set 3-6, but pulled back to a 'little bit british' when levelling the match with a 6-3 second set. Murray won a third set tie-break 7-6 to be 'nearly british' before being 'probably scottish again' after Djokovic levelled by winning winning the fourth 6-1.

In the final set Djokovic led 5-2 when Murray was 'always scottish and we were fools to think otherwise' but rallied back to 5-5 causing headline writers prepare the 'nearly british' headline, but Djokovic won the tie-break matches to seal the set 7-5 and leave Murray 'definitely Scottish'

The Final is on sunday between a Spanish man and a Serbian man.
