Andy Murray’s “Six Best moments” – From US Open Junior Champion to Double Olympic Gold

3. US Open champion 2012

Murray emerged from the shadow of the great Fred Perry to become Britain’s first Grand Slam winner in 76 years after a gladiatorial battle against Novak Djokovic.

It was a spellbinding 7-6 7-5 2-6 3-6 6-2 victory over the world No 1 that took four hours and 54 minutes on Arthur Ashe Stadium and in front of celebrity spectators including Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Sean Connery.

It was a marathon first set at 87 minutes that featured the longest tie-break a US Open final has ever witnessed as Murray edged Djokovic 12-10.

After Djokovic restored parity by taking the fourth set to send the final into a deciding-set shootout, Murray took a career-defining bathroom break. That helped him refocus and to “leave the court with no regrets”.

Murray came out and showed incredible resilience to break the Serb three times before sealing a remarkable victory.

When Djokovic smashed a return long on championship point, the crowd rose to their feet to recognise Britain’s history-maker.

4. Cincinnati 2008

In a battle of the 21-year-olds, Murray was meeting Djokovic for the first time in the final on the ATP World Tour and at a Masters 1000 event too.

It was a hugely significant victory, which encompassed some inspired tennis as power, strategy, fitness and near-genius won the day.

5. Montreal 2015

Murray beat top-ranked Novak Djokovic 6-4 4-6 6-3 for his fourth tournament victory of the year and third title in the Canadian event.

The second-seeded Murray also won the tournament in 2009 and 2010. The Scot ended an eight-match losing streak against Djokovic since the 2013 Wimbledon final.

Murray dedicated the victory to his coach, Amelie Mauresmo, the former women’s star who gave birth to a baby boy hours earlier.

He also moved to No 2 in the world ahead of Roger Federer said: “If this was the US Open, we’d have to play another couple of sets like that, which isn’t easy.”

6. US Open Junior Champion 2004 

Andy Murray did what not even Tim Henman could do : he became the US Open junior champion back in 2004, the first that Britain has ever had, after his 6-4, 6-2 win over Sergiy Stakhovsky.

The last time Britain had a junior Grand Slam champion was 1993, when James Baily took the Australian Open crown. But within a matter of months, Baily had retired from the game forever. Murray had bigger and better ambitions & we all know where he is now !!
