No surprise that Andy Murray’s home of Dunblane, Scotland collectively celebrated Andy’s big win on Monday. Murray beat Novak Djokovic in a 5-set epic to capture his first career Grand Slam title and become the first British man to bring home a singles Slam win in 76 years.
According to the BBC, Murray will return to Dunblane tomorrow for a special day of activities and commemoration.
“I can’t wait to get back to Dunblane to where it all began and share my US Open victory with everyone and thank them for all the support,” Murray told the BBC.
“It’s definitely going to be emotional, but it’s a very special place for me.”
Murray will end his trip by making a visit to his tennis birthplace, the Dunblane Sports Club.
Via their facebook page, the club is getting ready. “You may have herd the rumours that Andy is coming back on Sunday. Well its true The local hero is coming back to where it all started. It is going to be CRAZY in Dunblane on Sunday. The media coverage is huge, the number of people expected is HUGE.
“He is expected to be at the sports club by 1.30pm and we hope many of you will manage down to see him. There will be lots of road closures so probably best to come on foot. Afterwards members are welcome to join us in the club room for a glass of bubbly (or a cup of tea if you prefer!)”
Bubbly or tea? Wow, sounds like quite an event!
