Andy Murray says he is paying attention to a 2014 referendum on whether Scotland should become independent. A native of Scotland, Murray lives in London.

“You need to figure out what’s best for the country and then come to an opinion,” he told the Daily Record. “I want to read more about the issue. I don’t think you should judge the thing on emotion but on what is best economically for Scotland. You don’t want to come to a snap decision and then see the country go t--s up. I’m proud to be Scottish but I am also proud to be British. I don’t think there is any contradiction in that.”
