Murray Triumphs at Wimbledon


Andy Murray sparks wild celebrations as he becomes the first Scot to win the Men’s singles title at Wimbledon since Herbert Lawford in 1887. 

Andy Murray won at Wimbledon with a straight sets victory against Novak Djokovic, the World number 1, proving himself once and for all to be one of Scotland’s greatest living sportsmen.

The three set victory was a masterclass in triumph over adversity and tenacity as Murray came back from two breaks of serve and being 4-1 down to win the first set 6-4. Held on what was the hottest day in the UK so far this year, Murray described the match as “brutal”.

He went on to win 6-4 7-5 6-4 and claim his second major title.

Murray said: “It was an unbelievably tough match, so many long games.

“I have played in a lot of Slam finals, all against Roger (Federer) or Novak. Roger is probably the greatest player ever, Novak is one of the mentally strongest ever. I never had experience on my side, to beat him was so tough, it was such a tough match.”
