GOLDEN OLYMPIC HIS­TORY

Sport360 - - Top 5 -

The Olympic ti­tle may not carry any prize money but the joy on Mur­ray’s face when he beat Roger Fed­erer in straight sets in the 2012 sin­gles fi­nal showed how much he trea­sured it. His big­gest win to date had the added plea­sure of com­ing on the same Wim­ble­don Cen­tre Court where only weeks ear­lier he had lost to the same op­po­nent in the fi­nal. Mur­ray was to de­fend his ti­tle and be­come the first man to win two sin­gles golds when he out­lasted Juan Martin del Potro in a gru­elling fi­nal at Rio 2016, with both play­ers re­duced to sob­bing at the end.
