“You don’t want to go to sleep in case you wake up and it didn’t actually happen. I was just messaging my friends and laying in bed,” said Andy Murray, Britain’s Number one tennis player and now 2013 Wimbledon Champ. Image Source
Yesterday Murray became the first British man to lift the trophy since Fred Perry won the last of three titles at the All England club 77 years ago. Murray beat world number one Novak Djokovic in a 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 victory.
The 26-year-old believes it will take some time for his latest achievement to sink in and he is calling the win – the best day of his life.
“No-one could really believe it and I was the same,” Murray told BBC Five Live.
He said it was tough to get to sleep after he won and he only managed an hour.
