The Scot defeated Serbian’s Djokovic 6-4, 7-5, 6-4, to end Britain’s 77-year long wait for a men’s Wimbledon singles champion.

The 26-year-old world number two converted his fourth match point in a dramatic final game to clinch the victory on Centre Court, cheered on by the majority of the 15,000 spectators, thousand watching on the nearby big screen and millions around the country.

“I understood how much everyone wanted to see a British winner at Wimbledon so I hope you enjoyed it. I did my best,” Murray said.

“I have played Novak many times and when everyone finishes playing, he will go down as one of the fighters. He did the same today and that is what made it tough.”

The final minutes of the contest was a huge battle between both players as Murray saw three match points slip by from 40-0 and fending off three Djokovic break points with some big, brave forehand strokes, before the Serb netted a backhand to end the tie after three hours ten minutes.

“I have no idea what happened. I don’t even know how long that last game was. I’m sorry I don’t remember it,” Murray said of the long final match point.

Murray roared in delight before dropping to his knees on the turf. He then headed into the stand to celebrate with his family (Kim, Judy and his coach). He paraded his trophy around Centre Court on to the West Stand balcony
