You're a Nole fan you'd probably agree the Wimbledon he won was pretty low quality (with a DIRE final for grass tennis) but he still got the W no one will change that.
Certainly, I have no issue with Murray fans celebrating it. It doesn't particularly matter after all. He adapted to the conditions better than Nole did for the first two sets, that's for sure.

Also, it had the worst 1st round of a Slam I can remember with plenty of crap televised matches. All in all, very few memorable matches and most for bad reasons (ie Cilic's choke).
Very much this. Apart from anything else, slams should be much better organised.
