Andy Murray Becomes First Male Scot-Britton-Thingy To Win Wimbledon In 10,000 Years, Wonders Around Centre Court Thanking People (VIDEO)


After almost getting there last year against Federer, Andy Murray is Wimbledon Champion, beating Novak Djokovic 6-4, 7-5, 6-4. He then proceeded to climb around Centre Court thanking everybody because Andy Murray is like, the nicest dude ever. A fitting end to a 77 year drought. How’s this: The last Briton to win Wimbledon was Fred Perry.

Ya, the clothing company dude (he played tennis, first). So what the hell is a “Briton” anyway? Go go gadget Wikipedia!

Briton: (n.) British people, citizens of the United Kingdom, the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands, or of one of the British Overseas Territories.

Andy Murray is from Scotland, so he qualifies. Now that semantics are out of the way, we can talk about how huge this moment is for Wimbledon, the UK, and tennis in general, for the next 364 days.

UPDATE: Murray keeps being asked to cry by reporters, doesn’t.

    There are more semantics to be done, like double-checking that headline.

  • Ben

    Nice headline. A bit of hyperbole?

  • Alobe

    Perfect summary of the event, thanks for that. Love the headline.

    Fact remains that 107 years of hurt is over, last time a Scotsman won it was 1896 (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_Mahony). Harold, you can sleep now.

    Djokovic never came up to usual standards, a shame in a way for the match itself. His semi was the match of the tournament.

    The English cling on to what they can…
    - The Welsh just won the Test series in Australia (rugby) – and were names British & Irish Lions for silly reasons.
    - A Scotsman won Wimbledon and it’s then critical he’s British since he’s not English, like Fred Perry.

    But they are sure to win the Ashes all by themselves at least. Good for you.

    Congratulation Andy Murray, I have to say that it is perfect information shared with us. He is a great tennis player and he had broken the world record in the tennis sport history. He becomes very strong than other tennis players.
