***ly Murray blasts U.S. Open scheduling

"It's not ***y fair that some players get only four matches whilst
other guys get five, six or even seven matches," grumbled the agitated
British No. 1. Jabbing a finger at a copy of the order of play, the
querulous Scot continued, "Look, they've got two stadiums and five
whole days left -- I don't get why they can't just give more matches
to everyone. It's not right, innit?"

Lol, i'm guessing you've made this up Ramirez and it's a joke. Gain
more insight into british culture

"innit" is not a phrase associated with Scots, you need to go and
visit the Ali G massiff in staines (around London) for that.

Yes, I know that but to me Murray sounds more like an Englishman than
a stereotypical Scot. I've never seen a quotation from him in which he
said things like "wee" or "I canna do it," and he certainly doesn't
have much of a brogue.

TBH, I don't know if it's because he spends so much time in the U.S
(training camps in miami + tournaments for 8 or so weeks of the year &
he has a flat there.) Since his accent sounds slightly American to me.
It's certainly not that strong a scottish accent although he maintains
many of the colloquialisms associated with Scotspeople (as you said.)

Living in England would also explain his diluted accent, (all good
scots do ) :-) Isn't that right Willie?

Oh come on! Murray speaks with an Embra accent through and through. It's
like an "I'm Scottish...but kinda posh" type of affair. Slightly
"Morningsidey", where they think 'sex' is what you put your rubbish in. I'm
always surprised, given his travels, that he has maintained a Scots accent.
Defo. from his Mom methinks.

It's one of the most widely recognized traditional British folk
tunes.  Morris dancers hold a somewhat dubious reputation, and this
video shows it is well deserved.

For 'tis now our holiday."
