Murray Takes Wimbledon Title
Didn’t Andy Murray do well yesterday as he beat Milos Raonic to lift his second Wimbledon Grand Slam trophy? The UKMums.TV team can’t help wondering whether it was more of a struggle for him this time, now he’s a new dad!
But the 29-year-old world number two who won two previous Gram Slam titles, the 2012 US Open and Wimbledon in 2013, proved he’s on top form. Murray also believes his best is yet to come. He told the BBC: "I still feel like my best tennis is ahead of me, that I have an opportunity to win more.”
Murray also says each of his previous final defeats, all against Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer, had contributed to his success. "Failing's not terrible,” he added, “I put myself in a position all of the time in these events to win them but haven't won them all of the time. I've lost a lot of close ones against great players most of the time. Learning from my losses is something I've done throughout most of my career. I think the last three months have been some of the best I've played in terms of consistency."
Murray's Wimbledon win in 2013 ended Britain's 77-year wait for a men's singles champion. Let us know what you thought of Andy’s performance during this year’s Wimbledon over on our Facebook and Twitter.
