Andy Murray Wins Wimbledon, Ends Long British Drought: Andy Murray of Scotland has become the first British man in 77 years to win the Wimbledon men's tennis singles championship. Murray defeated Novak Djokovic of Serbia 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 in a grueling 3-hour, 9-minute match played in the hottest temperature for a final since 1976. Since losing the final last year to Roger Federer, Murray has won the Olympic gold medal, the U.S. Open and now Wimbledon.

That's final game was an epic tale of its own.

Really great match in spite of being straight sets. The two have now met in 4 slam finals, with each taking 2. I expect to see several more finals featuring this pair in the coming years.

If the Queen wanted to increase his chivalric stature, would she award him membership in a second order, or raise him further up the BE order toward knighthood?
