Who qualifies as a sporting great? Who can really be called a legend? Some gain more support than others but, in the modern era, tennis?Andy Murray?and Formula?Ones Lewis Hamilton are at the top of the list in the British sporting pantheon.Comparing them with other enduring heroes is tough. Its easy to make cases for people such as Booby Moore, Englands World Cup-winning captain or five-time Olympic-gold-medal-winner Steve Redgrave.There are many others who deserve a mention, too, including Jackie Stewart, the unquestioned king of the F1 road in his day, Chris Hoy, who swept Olympic, Commonwealth and World Championship rivals away and 3-time Open winner Nick Faldo.But after a brilliant British sporting weekend that saw the nations tennis players claim five titles at Wimbledon, Hamilton win his home Grand Prix and Chris Froome retain the yellow jersey in the Tour de France, the focus is on two for whom the crown of the greatest appears to fits most snugly:Andy MurrayWhen he started out on tennis mens tour the nation couldnt decide whether he was more Scottish or British. In newspaper offices, journalists swung between the two descriptions depending on how well he was doing.?Today, things have changed. Murray is a multiple Grand Slam winner, Olympic champion and the guy who led his country to Davis Cup glory after an achingly-long wait.Hes the world No.2 in his sports greatest era and has shattered numerous long-standing records that had hung heavily from the nations shoulders. But there is more: he is also a tennis statesman, proud dad and fans favourite.The way Murray stops to sign programmes and tennis balls when he moves around Wimbledons courts, or has the time for a string of selfies with supporters in the corridors within the Centre Court building after wining the biggest title in his sport, speaks volumes.Even the morning after celebrating his latest Grand Slam title, when ESPN asked him about the legacy hed like to leave at the end of his career, he seemed a little embarrassed, too modest to have thought about his place in the British sporting pantheon.I dont know what my legacy will be, he said. When I finish, it would be nice if British tennis was in a better place than when I came in.Murray is no flash, money-mad sporting figure. In many ways, he is an anti-hero who has achieved fame and fortune despite a character which no marketing man would describe as perfect. Even Murrays camp describe him as a bit nerdy.The 29-year-old has earned a claim to British sporting greatness through taleent and hard work, building his physique and honing his skills.dddddddddddd Most of the other image-making elements which increase the popularity -- or notoriety -- of others have been eschewed.But when tennis has struggled with doping and betting scandals, he has been the voice of reason; the guy who gives an honest, thought-through opinion.Murray has shown his emotions and people have found they can relate to him as a result. Better than that, pundits, fans and the man in the street who only watches tennis once a year when it is served with strawberries and cream, can admire him.If he finally dethrones his great rival, Novak Djokovic, a stronger candidate would be hard to imagine.Leo SpallLewis HamiltonCome off the A10, drive through the unassuming housing estate and cross over the canal. If you find yourself at the sewage works, youve gone too far. This is where the story started -- a small go-kart track called Rye House in southern Hertfordshire.From the age of seven, Hamilton would complete laps of the circuit while his father, Anthony, stood behind the tyre barrier watching on.Aside from monitoring the progress of his son, Anthony would keep an eye on the more experienced karters, making a note of where the best ones hit the brakes for the trickiest corners.Once hed correlated the fastest times with the latest braking points, hed stand at the side of the track as a marker for his son to beat. Lap after lap, Hamilton Jnr would brake later and later, push harder and harder, until finally no-one could beat him.Fast forward 25 years and Hamiltons desire to be the latest driver on the brakes and the fastest driver on the circuit havent changed. But pretty much everything else has.The second-hand go-kart has been traded up to a world-beating Mercedes F1 car (he now has a team of engineers to analyse each braking point) and his humble roots in Hertfordshire have long been left behind for an exclusive residence in Monaco. He is now an international superstar known the world over -- and often for reasons that have nothing to do with his sport.But dont fall into the trap of misunderstanding Hamilton. At the core there remains a talented, determined and serious sportsman. At 31 years of age he is currently in his prime and on his way to a goal no other British driver has ever achieved: a fourth F1 world championship.He truly is on the verge of greatness.Laurence Edmondson ' ' '
