World No.4 Andy Murray came close to winning his first ever Grand Slam this past Sunday, but in the end fell short. His effort though was absolutely top draw and even his mom is proud of that performance.
Murray's post match on court interview showed how overwhelmed the Scot was, as he broke down several times during a span of five minutes.
The 25-year-old's friends and family were also emotional, with girlfriend Kim Sears in tears, but Judy Murray was determined the day should end on a high.
She tweeted a picture of champagne glasses with the message: "Let's get fizzical! Lots to celebrate … Amazing day. Amazing tourney. Amazing son."
Murray played a fantastic first set where he broke Roger Federer twice, even in the second set the Scot was in the ascendancy, but Federer shifted gears and was then impossible to play against. The World No.4's performance though was several levels above his previous Grand Slam finals, as he won his first set in a match of the highest magnitude for the first time.
Murray said: "It doesn't get easier. When you lose, it's hard. It's tough to take, but you need to try to show strength of character to come back from it. Hopefully one day you get there.
"I'd say that's the best I've played in a slam final. I created chances. I went up a set. It was a long match. Even the last two sets, I still had chances.
"I played a good match. I made pretty good decisions for the most part, so I'm happy with that."
It was Federer's first grand slam title since he beat Murray in the 2010 Australian Open final, and the Swiss is confident his opponent's wait will not go on too much longer.
Federer said: "It's hard. I've been there as well. I think he's done so, so well. Because I see him every day, I see what he goes through on a daily basis on tour.
"At Wimbledon I think he handles it so perfectly. I think he's giving himself so many looks at big titles. I really do believe deep down in me he will win grand slams – not just one.
"Things just didn't quite turn out for him in the finals the way he hoped for. But I'm sure he got another step closer to a grand slam title. I really do believe and hope for him that he's going to win one soon."
