Andy Murray–no more “Definitely Maybe!”

Andy Murray says his US Open win “means the world” and that he is relieved to have ended Britain’s long search for another male Grand Slam champion.

On Monday 10th September 2012, Andy Murray clinched his 1st Grand Slam title, by winning the US Open, in 5 sets against Novak Djokovic.

Murray beat the defending champion and world #2 Djokovic 7-6 (12-10) 7-5 2-6 3-6 6-2 in a contest at Flushing Meadows that lasted almost five hours.  Thereby claiming his 1st Major title at the fifth attempt, becoming the 1st Briton to win a Grand Slam since Fred Perry in 1936, 76 years ago.

Coming in the same year as an Olympic Gold, and a defeat in the Wimbledon final, this is a truly a great accomplishment, done in his style, and finally putting to rest all those concerns and doubts of “may be but not quite enough!”

Well done Andy!
