WIMBLEDON, Sporting Alert – Second ranked Andy Murray beat Canadian Milos Raonic in straight-sets on Centre Court on Sunday to claim his second Wimbledon title.
The British star dominated contest 6-4 7-6(3) 7-6(2) on his way to adding to the first Wimbledon title he won in 2013.
Sunday’s win handed Murray his third grand slam crown in his 11th final.
“Last time (in 2013) I was so relieved… there was so much stress and pressure, I didn’t really get a chance to enjoy it as much,” said Murray.
“I’ll make sure I enjoy this one for sure.”
The 29-year-old finally picked up a grand slam title this campaign, after in this year’s Australian and French Open finals to world No. 1 Novak Djokovic.
“I’ve had some great moments but also some tough losses and this win feels extra special because of the tough losses,” Murray said.
“I’m proud to get my hands on the trophy again,” he told reporters on Sunday.
After the defeat in Sunday’s final, Milos Raonic vowed that nothing will get in his way of winning a grand slam.
“This one will sting a bit,” he said.
“I’m going to work on everything. I’m not going to leave any stone unturned.
“I’m going to try to get myself back in this position, try to be better in this position.”
“I’m going to try to get fitter, stronger. I’m going to try to improve my return game, improve my serve. I can improve there. Improve my efficiency coming forward.
“There’s not one thing I’m not going to try to improve.”
Raonic had defeated No. 3 Roger Federer in the semi-finals to book his place in Sunday’s trophy battle.
