Andy Murray is all smiles today after winning his second career Wimbledon title, the third Grand Slam overall. The second-seeded Murray collected an early break and survived two more tiebreakers to win 64, 76, 76. Afterward, Murray said this one he’ll properly celebrate.
“I feel happier this time,” Murray said. “I feel more content this time. I feel like this was sort of more for myself more than anything, and my team as well. We’ve all worked really hard to help get me in this position.
“Last time it was just pure relief, and I didn’t really enjoy the moment as much, whereas I’m going to make sure I enjoy this one more than the others.
“I want to spend this time with my family and my closest friends, the people that I work with. That’s who I want to be around right now. I’ll make sure I spend a lot of time with them over the next couple of days. Yeah, look forward to that.”
And winning Wimbledon a second time from where’s he come from is quite an achievement.
“To do it twice here, an event where there is a lot of pressure on me to perform well, I’m very proud,” Murray added. “From where I was kind of at the end of that year after I had the surgery, yeah, it’s been quite a long, long road back.”
Murray won’t have much time to celebrate, though. Davis Cup is right around the corner and so too are the Olympics. Plus, the Masters Canada and Cincinnati.
But if he does well he can contend with Novak Djokovic for the top spot in the ranking. And Murray’s already made the finals of all three Slams this year.
“I still feel like my best tennis is ahead of me, that I have an opportunity to win more,” Murray said. “Everyone’s time comes at different stages. Some come in their early 20s, some mid 20s. Hopefully, mine is still to come.”
