He carries the weight of the world on his shoulder, never smiles, and hardly shaves.

If they ever need someone other than Kenneth Branagh to play Wallander they can always see if Andy Murray is free.

A new career might sweeten the mere £575,000 he got for not winning Wimbledon.

Oddly enough there were some comparisons between Murray's match against Federer and the first episode of a new series about Sweden's misery-guts detective.

It started so well with Murray breaking Federer's serve and Wallander setting up a new home with his girlfriend.

Things were looking up - Murray was winning and Wallander even managed an sort-of smile.

Then it all went horribly wrong with Murray losing his advantage and Wallander finding a body dumped in his garden.

Federer started to fight back and the demons that are always on Wallander's back made their presence felt.

More lost points for Murray, more murders for Wallander, things don't get any worse than that.

At the end of it all Murray promised to get his head together for the next time and Wallander, having forgotten to tell his new partner that he was spending the night on ferry to Poland, was dragged off to see a shrink.
