Mixed fortunes for Brits at Wimbledon

9th July 2012

Saturday evening saw Jonathan Marray became the first Briton to win the Wimbledon men's doubles title for 76 years. Murray and his wildcard partner Danish player Frederik Nielsen beat fifth seeds Robert Lindstedt and Horia Tecau 4-6 6-4 7-6 6-7 6-3.

"What a great honour. I just wanted to cherish every moment. Thanks to Freddie. It was meant to be," said the 31-year old from Sheffield.

Marray added that he could not believe that he had won the title: "When I see my friends and family and speak to them about it, over the course of a few days, a few weeks, I'm sure it will sink in a bit more."

However, there was disappointment for the other major British player at this year's tournament. Andy Murray was defeated by Roger Federer as the Swiss player claimed a record-equalling seventh Wimbledon win and his 17th Grand Slam title.

Despite a strong start which saw Murray break Federer in the first game, the experienced player won 4-6 7-5 6-3 6-4 on Centre Court. The Scot has now lost all of the four Grand Slam finals that he has played in.

"Everybody always talks about the pressure of playing at Wimbledon, but it's not the people watching - they make it incredible," said a tearful Murray.

Tennis fans enjoying top hotels in London later in the year should consider purchasing tickets for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals that take place at the O2 Arena at the start of November.
