While you were sleeping, the men’s final of the Australian Open was being played. Find out who won, plus we go around the NBA.
This morning (well, this morning U.S. Eastern time), Andy Murray notched one of the biggest wins of his career, beating Roger Federer in five sets to advance to his third Australian Open final. But that doesn’t mean he looked happy with himself while doing it. How unhappy did he look? See after the jump.
What Happened Last Night: Carmelo Anthony Got Revenge On KG For Whatever He Actually Said, And Andy Murray Beat Roger Federer
Tennis is really heating up, you guys. Just like we said it would. But before we get to that, there’s basketball to break down – including the first faceoff between the Knicks and Celtics since this went down. Let’s get to it.
“You’re Going To Be Okay”: Andy Murray Got Emotional When He Dedicated A Win To A Friend With Cancer (Video)
On Saturday, Andy Murray successfully defended his Brisbane International title when he defeated Grigor Dimitrov 7-6 (7-0) 6-4. Afterward, he dedicated the win to “one of his best friends back home,” his voice nearly cracking from emotion.
Wave those Union Jacks and pop open the Strongbow! Andy Murray has won his first Grand Slam! (And Britain’s first over 75 years!) Read more about The Great Scot, after the jump.
No, there are no leagues (yet). Yes, these may be the only two players in the world. But hey, if basketball was invented out of thin air, why can’t “Fire Tennis” achieve the same notoriety as James Naismith’s brainchild?
Scotsman Andy Murray is the British golden boy of men’s tennis. Murray has never won a major, but he brought home a pretty significant prize on his home turf Sunday: Olympic gold. And with Scotland knee-deep in the process of secession from the UK, it’s a good thing Murray got that whole feel-good story of the hometown favorite winning a big tournament out of the way while he was actually still British.
One month later, Andy Murray’s going to be playing for a championship on Centre Court at the All England Club against Roger Federer… again. And he got there thanks to a performance that was vintage Murray in more ways than one. How so? See after the jump.
Andy Murray lost Wimbledon to Roger Federer, as we told youa few moments ago. It was a gut-wrenching loss, with Murray taking the first set, but eventually succumbing to Federer’s on-court genius. There’s been a lot of pressure on Murray to bring home Wimbledon for the English, but he took this loss with the utmost grace. So much so that we won’t even make fun of him for choking up while describing his emotions and the support he had received from family and fans alike. Check it out, after the jump.
Roger Federer won his seventh Wimbledon title a few moments ago (4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4), thwarting Andy Murray’s plans to revitalize British tennis and become the first British man to win at the All-England club in 10 billion years (or something). Federer will now recapture the No. 1 seed, which is particularly remarkable considering he’s on the tail end (if we can even call it that) of his career, while having to battle Novak Djokovic and Rafa Nadal at every Grand Slam. It was his 17th Grand Slam title overall. Video of match point, after the jump.
