The day and month of the year said it all, 7th of the 7th 2013 became the day that British tennis ace Andy Murray removed the shackles that has dogged men’s tennis in Britain for nearly a century by becoming the first man to win the Wimbledon title for 77 years.
Last year the Scott was beaten by tennis god Roger Federer when he reached the final for the first time. This year he faced the world’s number one men singles player Novak Djokovic and in a highly competitive match Murray went 6-4 in the first set, 7-5 in the second set and the third and final set 6-4 on Centre Court.
In the baking heat on Centre Court Murray and Djikovic put on a show to grace any championships and in attendance to pay tribute to Murray and his victory, were the great and the good in British society including Prime Minister David Cameron, Scotland First Minister Alex Salmond, Spices girl Victoria Beckham and Footballer Wayne Rooney.
Murray won his first grand slam in the US last year and many might have thought he would become a one hit wonder, but today he answered his critics in real style taking the Wimbledon crown.
