Andy Murray hailed his second Wimbledon title as “extra special” as the Scot wept tears of joy following his emphatic victory over Milos Raonic in Sunday’s final.
Murray defeated the Canadian 6-4, 7-6 (7/3), 7-6 (7/2) to win his third Grand Slam crown and become the first British man to lift multiple Wimbledon titles since Fred Perry in the 1930s.
The 29-year-old, who became Britain’s first male Wimbledon singles champion for 77 years in 2013, is the 12th man to enjoy more than one All England Club triumph.Murray had sobbed in frustration after losing to Roger Federer in his first Wimbledon final in 2012, but four years later the tears were purely joyous. “This the most important tournament for me every year. I’ve had some great moments here but also some tough losses the wins feels extra special because of the tough losses,” Murray said.
