Murray Wins Wimbledon 2013

July 8, 2013

in Grand Slams: Wimbledon

The World No.1 and No.2, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray literally went toe-to-toe in the 2013 Wimbledon Men’s Singles Final on the Centre Court in London with an intense battle for ground stroke supremacy.

Murray proved to be too good as he won his second Grand Slam title in 3 hours and 9 minutes 6-4, 7-5, 6-4. In a very intense struggle for each and every set unravelled, where getting the usually critical break of serve was nowhere near enough to close out any of the sets.

One in every three games saw a break of serve and in the 32 games played, they averaged almost break point opportunity per game with 30 in total. The match was decided by the very competitive rallies and great court coverage by both players.

In fact, Murray having triple championship point and serving at 40-0 also didn’t guarantee a service game hold. Murray converted his fourth championship point in a mirror image of the Women’s Singles Final where Marion Bartoli closed it out with her fourth chance.

Murray has won two of the past three Grand Slam finals against Djokovic after being the runner-up at the 2013 Australian Open and closing out a career changing fifth set after being two sets to love up at the 2012 US Open.
