Though, everyone is talking about Andy Murray’s quest to become the first British contender to claim Wimbledon singles’ title after 76 years – his compatriot Jonathan Marray achieved another feat for his country on Saturday.
Britain’s 76-year Wimbledon title drought came to end on Saturday — with men's doubles title. Jonathan Marray of Great Britain and Frederik Nielsen of Denmark beat fifth-seeded pair of Robert Lindstedt of Sweden and Horia Tecau of Romania with a 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (5), 6-7 (5), 6-3 scoreline on Centre Court on Saturday and claimed the doubles title.
Sheffield-based Marray and Dane Nielsen only teamed up three events ago. Patrick Hughes and Raymond Tuckey were the last British winners of doubles title in 1936.
After this win, Marray quoted "What a great honor. I just wanted to cherish every moment. Thanks to Freddie. It was meant to be."
