Heartfelt congratulations to Andy Murray on winning his first grand slam singles title and also to Novak Djokovic for his gutty effort down 2 sets to love today and taking it to a fifth set. Both players played their hearts out under brutal win conditions. It seems like the wind gets worse every year at the U.S. Open.
Murray has gotten his first slam and now I wonder how many he can win.
People in Great Britain must be thrilled. Their long 76 year long wait is over thanks to Murray.
Congrats to Murray and his fans. I didn't enjoy the match so much, yeah we saw some drama ... there were some great points but also so much pushing from both players. just crazy. Djokovic played a really bad match. no excuses tho. he should've known better.
anyway, great win for Muzza. Finally he got it, so people here can't make fun of him any more (or I hope so). Nole missed his chances in the first set, but hey, life goes on. I bet Brits (or shall I say Scots) are probably going wild, lol.
Those bashing Nole can fuck off as well. 5 time slam champ, fought hard in the third and fourth, ran out of gas in the 5th but he remains the best hard court player on the tour and will be the favourite again come AO time. Nole
It was over ever since he mysteriously lost his serve, forehand and backhand DTL.
'82 - '91:best decade in tennis
Why weren't there any hard hitting Del Potro's or Cilic's from 2004-2008? 34 year old Agassi took peak Federer to 5 sets at U.S Open but any problem cannot be found? GOAT argument. 20 year old Djokovic straight setted prime Federer at Aussie Open but any problem cannot be found? GOAT argument.
Only 5 points between them, that's not many over 5 sets. Well done to Murray, he played better on the day and that's all that counts. The match wasn't a great one - same as the Aust Open final....long and a lot of grinding.
