Needless to say, expectations are high of another successful run here at Flushing Meadows next month. Rugby followers may have noticed that two days before Andy Murray's achievement the British and Irish Lions won their first Test series victory since 1997, in Australia. So after a long drought we Brits are beginning to enjoy the taste of victory.
Whenever Andy Murray wins, he is characterised by the London media, as a battling Brit, but whenever he loses, he is portrayed as a sour, aloof, remote, grumpy, ill-tempered Scot.

Since 2004 three quarters of a million Polish people have been residing next to the Brits on this island without pushing themselves into the spotlight - until this event. Now, when the Poles are conquering English lawns, it might be a good time to point out few characteristics of this unusual elite and draw common traits for the whole contemporary Polish population.
