Andy Murray won his second Wimbledon title this morning, defeating Milos Raonic in resounding fashion. Murray won the match in straight sets; the Scottish national won the first set 6-4 and then took the second and third sets in tiebreakers.
With a decidedly partisan Centre Court crowd behind him, Murray showed impressive poise and utilized his all-around game en route to the straightforward victory. Murray served effectively throughout the match and Raonic was unable to break him a single time.
It is Murray’s third singles Grand Slam overall, having previously won the US Open in 2012 and Wimbledon in 2013. At the Australian Open and French Open this year he made it to the respective finals only to be beaten by world no. 1 Novak Djokovic. Djokovic was upset in the third round of Wimbledon, allowing Murray an easier path to break through for his first major of 2016.
The Canadian Raonic made the final after beating Roger Federer in the semifinal. It was the number seven player in the world’s first Grand Slam final.
