FROM BRIDESMAID TO BRIDEGROOM
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.
