“I don’t know how I came through in the end, I just managed to get through.”
PHUKET: Andy Murray has won his first Grand Slam final at the fifth time of asking.
Murray defeated Novak Djokovic 7-6 (12-10), 7-5, 2-6, 3-6, 6-2 in four hours 54 minutes to win the US Open and in doing so ended Britain’s 76-year wait for a male Grand Slam singles title.
The Scot won the title 79 years to the day and on the same court that Fred Perry won the first of his eight major titles.
Murray’s victory over the defending champion moves him up to world number three.
