Murray sweeps away victory




It takes a very tough man to have gone through the hardships, endure as much patience, sack the highest-paid coach and probably be a man enough to shed a few tears at emotional times. But this is not what’s been making the news lately. It’s the win he finally gave to himself and to England.

The last time a British won a Grand Slam was a very, very long time ago and the waiting drought finally got drenched in Murray’s euphoric US Open win. Defeating Novak Djokovic in a thrilling finals, Murray finally caught the triumph in his fist and much-deserving so.

It was not all to Murray’s side right through the match however. There was a point where he even lagged behind by two sets but that didn’t mean it was the end of game for him and after five hours of tactful play he defeated Djokovic with scores 7-6 (12-10) 7-5 2-6 3-6 6-2. He now takes his new ranking of world no 3, formally held by Rafael Nadal who is still recovering from injuries. And just like the women’s winner Serena Williams said about her summer, Murray said:

“He [Lendl] was one of the greatest,” the 25 year old said. “He has helped me through the tough times as have all of my team. It’s the best feeling for me, I’ve had an unbelievable summer.”

Lendl had won the US Open three times.

Perhaps the only way to let loose of the past defeats is the grasp of the next win and that seems to be working for the new champion. Murray isn’t happy with the way Wimbledon turned out but this win does fade away some of the disappointment.

Djokovic had his zestful energy all through the game and dominated most of the starting but Murray just refused to give him. He knew what it felt like to reach the finals and fall short of the title, not just after this year’s Wimbledon but several times before. He changed it all.

Ever since his boyhood days, Murray took the advantage of being the coach’s son and all those who say him play could say with confidence that he was to become known worldwide for this.
