(July 10, 2016) Andy Murray won his second Wimbledon title on Sunday with a 6-4, 7-6(3), 7-6(2) victory over No. 6 seed Milos Raonic. The world No. 2 has become the first British man since Fred Perry 1934-6 to win multiple Wimbledon titles.
Raonic, Canada’s first player in the Wimbledon final had no answers to in trying to break Murray’s serve. Murray was a wall which Raonic could not penetrate making only 12 unforced errors in the entire match. Raonic was broken once in the match, in the seventh game of the first set.
“This one’s going to sting,” Raonic said of the loss.
Murray, who last won the title back in 2013, was very emotional about the victory, was in tears in his chair after the match. During the trophy presentation, the Scot talked about his feelings.
“Last time, I was so relieved. I felt, just so much stress and pressure and didn’t really get the chance to enjoy it as much,” he said.
“This is the most important tournament for me every year,” Murray said in his on-court interview. I’ve had some great moments here and also some tough losses. The wins feel extra special because of the tough losses. I’m proud to have my hands on the trophy again.
“I played really good stuff today. Milos has had a great few weeks on the grass and had some unbelievable wins. His match against Roger in the semis was a great, great match. He is one of the hardest workers out there, always trying to improve and get better.”
“It’s been a phenomenal two weeks and a phenomenal week just before that at Queen’s,” said the 25-year-old Raonic. I keep plugging away every single day to give myself chances. There’s nothing I want more than to be back here.”
Just three weeks ago, in the Queen’s Club tournament Murray beat Raonic in three tough sets.
Murray is now 7-3 against Raonic.
