Murray signals backing for Scottish independence (Yahoo Sports)

FILE - In this Sunday, Aug. 5, 2012 file photo, gold medalist Andy Murray of Great Britain waves the British flag during the medal ceremony of the men's singles event at the All England Lawn Tennis Club at Wimbledon, in London, at the 2012 Summer Olympics. Murray's future status, as well as that of Scottish Olympic athletes, rests on the result of next week's independence referendum in Scotland. Polls suggest the two sides are running neck-and-neck, presenting a real possibility that Scotland could break away after 307 years as part of the United Kingdom. If Scots vote ''yes'' on Sept. 18, the decision won't have much impact on football and rugby, as Scotland already fields its own teams in those sports. But it will affect Scotland's status in the Olympics and raise doubts over whether Scots can send a team to Rio. By then, Murray could be representing an independent Scotland.

After carefully avoiding taking a side on the issue, former Wimbledon champion Andy Murray signaled his support for Scottish independence on Thursday, the day of the historic vote. He tweeted to his 2.7 million followers: ”Huge day for Scotland today! no campaign negativity last few days totally swayed my view on it. Later Thursday, Murray was quoted as telling the Daily Mail website he would continue to represent Britain in the 2015 Davis Cup, regardless of the outcome of the referendum. If Scotland does vote to break away, independence would not go into effect until March 2016.
