The 29-year-old world number 2 Andy Murray added the 2016 trophy to his 2013 triumph at the All England Club and his 2012 US Open achievement. Showing up in his 11th final at the majors, yet his first against an adversary other than Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer, the Scot put on an centrecourt masterclass. Murray covered his head in his towel and sobbed at the times after historical final. Murray, after winning the final –
It’s the most critical competition for me consistently. I’ve had some extraordinary minutes and extreme misfortunes. The wins feel extra special because of the tough losses. I’m proud to have my hands on the trophy again.
Murray faced just two break points in the two hour 48 minute encounter while 25-year-old Raonic, who had clobbered 137 aces going into the final, managed just eight on Sunday. Furthermore, Raonic after the defeat said that –
It’s a difficult challenge. Andy has been playing great and he deserved to win, congratulations to him. This one is going to sting. I’m going to make sure I do everything I can to be back here for another chance.
Victory for Murray helped make up for the disappointment of losing the Australian and French Open finals to Djokovic this year. Well played champ! Wishing you luck for your upcoming major titles.
