Wimbledon Tennis Champion Andy Murray

Andy Murray became the first British man to be crowned the champion of Wimbledon in 77 years!

Murray defeated Novak Djokovic in the men’s singles final, with many celebrities there to cheer him on!

The 26-year-old tennis player is the first Brit since Fred Perry in 1936 to win Wimbledon.

Murray smiled and hugged his Serbian opponent before falling to his knees shaking.

Andy Murray rushed to hug his coach Ivan Lendl, his girlfriend Kim Sears, before getting high-fives from the crowd.

One funny part was when Andy forgot to hug and kiss his mother Judy!

Murray appeared dazed in the exciting moment and ran to embrace his mother after she was pointed out in the crowd.

Judy said, “It’s the best feeling ever to see your son win Wimbledon. This is what he has talked about winning since he was a little boy, it was a dream that has become a reality now for him.”

Andy Murray was announced as Wimbledon champion and presented with his trophy, with Andy admitted he couldn’t even remember winning.

A thrilled Murray explained, “I really don’t know what happened. I can’t even remember, that’s how well I was concentrating. It feels slightly different to last year. Last year was one of the toughest moments of my career, so to win it this year… It was an unbelievably tough match. I don’t know how I managed to come through that last game. Three match points. I’m so glad to finally do it.

“I’ve played Novak many times and he’s going to go down as one of the biggest fighters ever. He’s come back so many times from losing positions. I just managed to squeeze through in the end. I know how much people want a British winner, I hope you guys enjoyed it, I tried my best.

“I’ve got a great team, they’ve stuck by me through a lot of tough moments. This one’s for Ivan as well. I know he did everything to try and win this when he was playing, I’m glad I was able to help him out when he was coaching. He’s been brilliant with me, I’m not easy at times”.

Novak Djokovic was a great sport, stating, “Congratulations to Andy. You absolutely deserved this win. You played incredible tennis. I know how much it means to your whole country. Well done”.

Novak adds, “That makes his success even bigger because I am aware of the pressure that he gets. I gave it all, it was an absolutely pleasure and an honor again to be a part of this final”.

Prime Minister David Cameron, actor Bradley Cooper, soccer star Wayne Rooney, Victoria Beckham, rocker Ronnie Wood, and Gerard Butler were all on hand to cheer on Andy Murray!
