Perhaps no man had a more difficult journey to winning his first major Grand Slam title. For years, Andy Murray had to navigate through a treacherous tennis jungle where all-time titans like Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal mercilessly massacred him time after time.But Murray survived his beatings and now, finally, in his 28th attempt at a major tournament, the 25-year-old Murray got the job done with a spectacular Herculean effort to subdue the dominant hard court master Djokovic in five grueling sets. Unlike Murray, Federer, Djokovic and Nadal had it far easier in comparison. Federer defeated Mark Philippousis for his first major title at Wimbledon and Nadal beat Mariano Puerto in his first French Open final. Djokovic knocked off Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the 2008 Australian Open final.Murray, with new coach Ivan Lendl in his corner, asserted his superiority early by winning the first two sets but an inspired Djokovic fought his way back to level the match at two-all. A fifth set would determine the victor and Murray, realizing how critical the early moments of set five were, raised his game and emotional adrenaline levels at just the right time, to surge to a 3-0 lead. Murray matched and outplayed Djokovic from the baseline while also expressing outwardly that he wanted this title more than his Serbian rival. Djokovic made one last assault to get to 2-3 but Murray was able to thwart him from that point, appearing to be the physically superior competitor of the two.When it was all over, Murray's mind must have been like a hurricane blitz of thoughts and emotions, as he seemed dazed and even somewhat disoriented for a few minutes. It was like he didn't know how to react, he held his face and covered his mouth, dropped his Head racquet, fell to his knees, embraced his counterpart, appearing totally lost in himself and the moment which he had waited so many years to finally capture.Now the long wait is over, Andy Murray of Scotland, is the reigning U.S. Open and Olympic champion.
