As one of the greatest sporting personalities from Scotland – Sir Alex Ferguson watched from the stands, his compatriot Andy Murray put in a stunning display of resilience and mental strength as he captured the US Open crown.
The now World No.3 displayed immense self belief and courage as he halted a stunning fight back from the 2011 champion Novak Djokovic, who came back into the match after being two sets down to level the match at two sets all.
The 25 year-old right hander re-wrote history books as he became the first man to capture a major after Fred Perry.
Ferguson who was there to support the Olympic champion in the semifinal too, was burlbing with praise for his countryman, and the 70 year old is been a fan for a while now.
"I'm really proud for the boy. That was a real test of a champion for me. I love watching tennis.”
said the Scot.
The Manchester United boss has enjoyed unparalleled success with the Old Trafford side since taking over in 1986, winning 12 Premier League titles and two Champions League trophies, but concedes he was more nervous watching Murray at Flushing Meadows than sitting in the United dugout.
“It was more nerve-wracking than a Premier League match," he admitted. "I'm usually in control of my own situation but I wasn't in control tonight."
