As is always the case with “origin” videos, some of the comments are remarkably prescient, especially “it may not be long before Scotland has somebody on par with the likes of Tim Henman… despite the weather”. Not half.
Also, skip forward to 2.08 for perhaps one of the worst backhand volleys ever captured on film.
