Andy Murray - US Open Grand Slam Champion!

It's 3am and I stayed up to watch it. Andy Murray gave us tension and anxiety in the bucket load as has become his way but it was worth it.

In fact, it has all been worth it. The long journey to watch that prodigious young talent from Dunblane in Scotland make his way to Olympic glory and now to this, the first British man to win a Grand Slam since Fred Perry himself lifted the US Open title back in 1936, is over.

Andy Murray - 2012 US Open Champion
It's been a rollercoaster ride but Andy Murray can now rightly claim to be a truly world class tennis player.

This of course is hopefully only the beginning. His coach Ivan Lendl went on to win a hat-full of majors after his first on his 5th final attempt - just as it was with Murray today.

The future now is looking bright. With the confidence of knowing that he is good enough to win a major, anything is now possible.

Well done Andy, a truly memorable way to bring down the curtain on a truly memorable British summer of sport!

Oh and my tip for British Sports Personality of the Year!


  1. "Oh and my tip for British Sports Personality of the Year!"
    I can't see how any one person can be picked out from all those sports people who have demonstrated such commitment this summer.

    What would be much better would be if people stopped worshipping overpaid layabout so-called professional footballers - most of whom demonstrate a level of commitment to their 'sport' which is a farce and a joke.
