Andy Murray has become the first British male since Fred Perry in 1936 to win Wimbledon. The second-seeded Murray needed three hours and nine minutes to complete a 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 triumph over Novak Djokovic. The victory comes a year after Murray was beaten by seven-time champ Roger Federer.
Murray made things interesting in the final game as he was forced to deuce after having triple-championship point. Murray later fought off three break points before finally knocking off Djokovic, who was seeking his second Wimbledon crown in three years.
Djokovic went up a break in both the second and third sets, demonstrating the tenacity that has allowed him to win six Grand Slams. He won four straight games to take a 4-2 lead in the third set before Murray stormed back.
Murray finished with 36 winners and just 21 unforced errors.
