Andy Murray has claimed his second Wimbledon Open title after posting a 6-4, 7-6 (7-3), 7-6 (7-2) win over Milos Raonic in the 2016 finals at the All England Club on Sunday.
The latest addition is Murray’s third major title, and first since his reunion with Ivan Lendl, the influential coach who has presided over all three.
The 29-year-old world No 2 had before now won his first Wimbledon title in 2013 and a year earlier he surprised all to win the US Open title.
Sunday’s game was the 11th final at the majors for Murray, but his first against an opponent other than Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.
Having failed in most meetings with the duo of Djokovic and Federer, the Scot grabbed Sunday’s chance as he shattered Raonic’s hopes of becoming the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam crown.
