There has been strong support for awarding Andy Murray a knighthood from nurses, social workers, the Samaritans and members of voluntary organisations across the country.
'Of course he should be made a Sir!' said Nurse Fiona Moffat. 'Look what he's done for the country! I mean, what's that compared to our pointless existence of caring for the sick and saving lives.'
'We agree,' said a spokesperson for the Samaritans. 'Think about it. He played a game of tennis for three hours, so naturally he is a national hero, and quite rightly. I feel so embarrassed that all I do is give up my free time to talk to people who are in desperate situations. What can be more deperate than being 1-4 down in the third set!'
Since Sunday's historic victory, there have been reports of large numbers of nurses and other low-paid workers giving up their jobs to do something far more worthwhile, i.e. play tennis.
