Wimbledon 2013

Murray beat Djokovic 6-4, 7-5, 6-4, becoming the first male from Great Britain to win here since Fred Perry snagged the Wimbledon trophy in 1936.

The match still went 3 hours, 9 minutes despite not even reaching a fourth set, but that was more due to the long rallies between both players than anything else.

A year ago, Murray was on this same surface in the finals eventually losing to Roger Federer, but he said after that match, while tears flowed down his face, "I'm getting closer."

This time it was a different message from Murray.

"Last year was one of the toughest moments of my career. I don't know how I was able to come through that last game … three match points. 

I  just managed to squeeze through in the end."

Murray's straight sets victory over Djokovic wasn't just one for him, but it was for his country, Wimbledon and the sport of tennis.
