Mur­ray’s trans­for­ma­tion from a Grand Slam fi­nal­ist – he had lost in four fi­nals – to a cham­pion came at the 2012 US Open beat­ing No­vak Djokovic in an epic five set­ter. This time it was Mur­ray who sur­ren­dered a two-set ad­van­tage. How­ever, show­ing his ex­tra­or­di­nary men­tal strength – he had not lost when hold­ing a two-set lead since los­ing to David Nal­ban­dian at Wim­ble­don in 2005 – he rat­tled off the de­ci­sive fi­nal set 6-2. “When I re­alised I had won, I was a lit­tle bit shocked, I was very re­lieved and I was very emo­tional,” said Mur­ray.
