I don’t normally write about sport (or indeed, anything, these days) but I thought this was worth a moment.
The BBC is reporting today that Andy Murray’s defeat in the Wimbledon final was his “biggest disappointment yet” because he played better than ever before. And I have no doubt he feels that way.
That’s our culture that does that, not logic or common sense: the better you do and the harder you work, the bigger a disappointment it is when you fail.
Why? Is this a good thing?
