Respect Murray

Compared with the fair and balanced comments on the Nadal/Murray match by your correspondent Stuart Bathgate and other experienced commentators in the media, the cartoon in Saturday's issue (3 July) was in the worst possible taste and your editorial was brutal, unjustified and unfair.

What sort of encouragement for the future is there for someone who other people (Nadal included) regard as a great player with a great potential to be subjected by his "national newspaper" to treatment of this kind at a time like this?
