Tears Of Joy For Andy As He Wins His Second Wimbledon Title

Andy Murray has secured a second Wimbledon title after a straight sets win over Canadian Milos Raonic.

The Scot broke into tears after clinching the final point as the emotion overcame him and the crowd erupted with joy all around him.

He won the match 6-4, 7-6, 7-6 and was rarely troubled as he put in a dominant display, matching Raonic’s big service game with plenty of aces of his own.

After the final he thanked the crowd for their supporting, including Prime Minister David Cameron, who was roundly booed as Murray tried to laugh off the audience reaction.

Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge were in the Royal Box cheering on Murray alongside a host of celebrities including Benedict Cumberbatch, Lily James, Hugh Grant and Bradley Cooper.

Speaking after the match, Murray said the victory was ‘extra special’ because of the ‘tough losses’ he has endured at Wimbledon over the years.

He said: ‘I played really good stuff today I’ve had a great few weeks on grass. He [Raonic] had some unbelievable wins like in the semi. He is one of the hardest workers and is always trying to improve. He has an extremely nice team – very polite and well mannered. It’s not always the case.’

Even the stoney-faced Ivan Lendl managed to crack a smile as Murray lifted the trophy.

Murray added: ‘A big thank you to all of my team for the hard work they’ve put in to get me here and also my family. I love all of you. Thank you.

‘I’m going to make sure i enjoy this more last time I was so relieved and I was so nervous and there was so much pressure I didn’t get a chance to enjoy it as much, so with this one I’ll make sure I will.’
