He Did It
I didn't used to like him before.... until I few years ago I read, "Twenty one things you didn't know about Andy Murray," that when he was eight a man walked into his school and shot dead 17 children including his best friend and a Teacher! That he lived because he hid under the table!
From that day onwards I wanted him to Win! I told everyone I knew, and it changed their views of him too.
Last year when he lost at Wimbledon it was heart breaking. Especially when he tried to talk after he had lost, he was SO emotional.
It was fantastic when he won the Olympics in tennis... all we needed now was for him to win the main event, Wimbledon.
I noticed that after he win some matches he points towards the Heavens and he was also asked after one match just after he had won and was still on the court, "Why do you point upwards?" He replied he wouldn't say, but we know why.....
So, would he do it today, on such a hot day in Great Britain. A day I wouldn't fancy going for a long walk, let alone running around on a tennis court. It was awful when he had three Championships points and let it slip away....
I always wonder what the parents of the other seventeen children think when they see Andy on TV, winning do they think its not fair? Or maybe they are happy for him for he keeps their kids memory alive too. What would they have done, had they lived? What special thing would some of them have achieved for mankind? We will never know for their lives were extinguished age eight.
Today its all about the 7's if the other guy had won he would have won 7 grand slams, Andy won on he the 7th month and the 7th day and of course the 77th year since the last British man, the famous Fred Perry won!
You did it Andy, well done. You did us proud.
