Andy Murray has won the Wimbledon Championships 2013 by defeating the no. 1 player in the world Novak Djokovic in the final match. Murray won the match in the straight sets by 6-4, 7-5, 6-4.

This is the first time in the last 77 years that a British player has won the Wimbledon Championships. The last time that a British player had won this tournament was way back in 1936. Fred Perry had done that then.

Murray who was given the second seed in this tournament played fabulous tennis in the final match. He was dominant right from the outset and he didn’t give Djokovic any opportunity to settle down.

This was the 19th match between these two players and Murray defeated Djokovic for the 8th time.

Talking to the reporters in the post match interview, Murray said, “Last year, the final match was a big disappointment for me. It’s completely different this time around. It was not an easy match. The last game went on for quite long. Fortunately, I managed to sneak through somehow.”

“It’s really a special feeling. A lot of people desperately wanted a British player to win the Wimbledon Championships. I am glad that I fulfil their wishes.”

“Novak is a great fighter. He never gives up. The way he fought in that final game was incredible.”

On the other hand, Djokovic was looking hugely gutted. The Serbian superstar said, “I don’t want to make any excuses, but, I was physically struggling a bit after the tough last match. Andy played terrifically well and he deserved to lift the trophy. I want to congratulate him for his success.”

Djokovic had to toil hard for 283 minutes to defeat the Argentinean player Juan Martin Del Potro in the semi final match on Friday.
