Murray wins second Wimbledon title
A tearful Andy Murray says winning Wimbledon is easier than being the British Prime Minister after posting a emotional victory at the All England Club.
The first Briton to post multiple triumphs at the All England Club since Fred Perry in 1935, Murray wept with joy post-match. His inscrutable coach Ivan Lendl was also moved to a rare display of emotion as the Scot celebrated his third major. “I’ve had some great moments here and some tough losses and I’m proud to have my hands on the trophy again,” Murray said after downing Milos Raonic in straight sets.
“I played really good stuff today. Milos has had a great few weeks on the grass. He’s one of the harder workers out there. “And a huge thank-you to everyone who came out to support me. “The Prime Minister’s (David Cameron) here as well. Playing in a Wimbledon final is tough but I wouldn’t want to be prime minister. It’s an impossible job.” Glancing at Lendl, the former champion he lured out of coaching retirement, Murray said: “He’s just lucky.” Since reuniting with Lendl, Murray is unbeaten in 12 matches.
This is their third major together, adding to the 2013 Wimbledon and 2012 US Open crowns as well as the London 2012 Olympic gold medal.
Murray, 29, is the first Briton to claim multiple All England Club titles since Fred Perry in 1934-36 with a clinical 6-4 7-6 (7-3) 7-6-(7-2) victory. Superior from the baseline in a dour final which predictably excited the pulses of a deliriously partisan crowd, Murray claimed his third major — a feat simplified by the absence of nemesis Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.
