Murray wins at last

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page


Today, Andy Murray has won Wimbledon against the world number one Novak Djokovic. In scorching heat, the Scot took the match 6-4 7-5 6-4.

It is only the second time that Great Britain has won the Wimbledon tennis championship. Great Britain last won in 1936, when Fred Perry was the champion.

People are really proud of Andy because he kept on going, even when things were tough.

The finalists played in temperatures of 40 degrees. You could clearly see that both players were finding it hard to carry on in such high temperatures.

One viewer said, “It was fabulous. I have never seen a game like it.”

I think the right player won because he worked really hard and didn’t give up.

When Andy won he was quite shocked because Djokovic played such a good match.


Do you think the right player won?

    Your article reached me within an hour of the game ending. Well done, Macey.

    It’s hard to argue with a 3 sets to nil victory so,yes, the right man won. The result suggests that it was easy but we all know it wasn’t.

    I don’t think the right man won. Because when I last went to wimbeldon to get a autograph he just walked off. Roger Federer is my favourite player because he’s lovely to us kids! Novak Djokovich should have won because he’s my 3rd.
