    Well said! 77 years was a very long wait. Congrats to the British & Irish Lions also for their series win over Australia.

    Now all Murray has to do to convince the world that he can be the best is to beat Nadal. I believe Nadal is the only top player he hasnt beaten at all.

    Indeed a well deserved, hard fought win and a long time in the making. Murray never faltered even when it looked like Djokovic was mounting the start of an epic comeback. Djokovic was enormously graceful in defeat! A thoroughly enjoyable tennis match and a great triumph for the UK!

    What do you mean now? At the end of last year he was sitting with one slam and an Olympic title having beat Doc and Fed in major finals... #2 in the world, 2 slams and the Olympics, he has nothing to prove, it's not his fault Nadal has been injured a lot in the past two years.

    Not quite, the head to head is 13-5 in Nadal's favour.

    The first British winner for 77 years, except of course for Virginia Wade's win in 1977, and Ann Haydon Jones win over the great Billie Jean King in 1969, and Angela Mortimer Barrett in 1961 and Dorothy Round Little in 1937.

    The reference has always been with regards to the men's title, not the women's. They always mention Fred Perry!

    The Scottish government should erect a statue in Stirling castle for Andy, now a Scottish folk legend, beside Robert Bruce, James MacFadden and Diego Maradonna and hopefully one of Sabine Lisicki, just for good taste.

    Murray could have played in French open just 3 weeks earlier but he didnt. Maybe he knew Nadal was on top of his game and he didnt have a chance against him? who knows. Anyway we just might see them play in U.S open. I for one would love to see Murray/Nadal match up.

    We're talking about GS here. All other tournaments dont count half as much!
    Has Murray ever beaten Nadal in GS?

    who cares, Sabine Lisicki loves me. We will watch Germany win the world cup together.
