World No 3 Andy Murray, who was tagged a 'choker' after losing his first four grand slam finals, finally silenced his critics when he defeated defending champion Novak Djokovic in the final of USOpen 2012 Tennis Championships.
Match Cast: Murray vs Djokovic
"I have been asked about it many times when I got close to winning grand slams before," he said. "I get asked about it more and more, even after I won the Olympics. I still got asked, ‘When are you going to win a Grand Slam? So it's great to have finally done it."
He continued " I hope now it inspires some kids to play tennis and also takes away the notion that British tennis players choke or don't win or it's not a good sport."
"I proved that I can win the Grand Slams,” Murray added. “I proved that I could last four-and-a-half hours and come out on top against one of the strongest guys physically that tennis has probably seen, especially on this surface. But [I learned] to not doubt myself physically and mentally from now on. I'm sure that would have a positive impact in the future.”
