With Wimbledon only a few days away and the British number one Andy Murray seeded 4th, the British pubic have an extra reason to feel optimistic, will we finally have a British Wimbledon Champion?
Did you follow his progress at the warm up recently at Queens? It was exciting as ever, watching Murray defeat Malisse, Tipsarevic, Cilic and then annihilate former champion Andy Roddick in the semi final, before coming up in the final against the man who had defeated the worlds number one, Rafal Nadal, in the previous round: Frenchman Tsonga.
With the rain covering the picturesque West Kensington, Sunday's play was a total wash out - perhaps even the dire British weather was on Murray's side to give him an extra day to recover his strength for Monday!
When play resumed, you could see the spectators enjoying the sunshine and sipping champagne, whilst Murray played some incredible and elegant shots one wouldn’t dream of playing in such a crucial game. But true to form, after falling behind in the first set Murray showed his courage and nerve to overcome the strong Frenchman to lift the silverware in an epic finale.
