It was a very special day for Andy Murray who beat the world’s number 1 tennis player Roger Federer to take Gold at Wimbledon in the 2012 Olympics. Murray became the first British man to win the gold in singles since Josiah Ritchie in 1908. He won one for his home team Sunday, beating Federer 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 in the tennis final at Wimbledon.
Murray has struggled to recover from disappointments in the past, but today seemed to be his day. He bounced back quickly this time, sweeping through six matches in the Olympic tournament with the loss of only one set and reeling off nine straight games against Federer in one particularly lopsided stretch Sunday and finishing with two consecutive aces.
The victory marked a career breakthrough for Andy, as he has lost all four of his Grand Slam finals, three against Federer, including Wimbledon a month ago. Currently ranked at #4 in the world, Murray doesn’t have the endorsement portfolio quite like Roger Federer, but he could soon add to his list after this huge win. He currently has product endorsements with Rado Switzerland, Adidas, RBS and Head to name a few. Companies in Britian will be turning to Andy Murray when they are looking to for an athlete to make an appearance or deliver that keynote speech about being in the zone!
