To say that the last two weeks of tennis was interesting would be one of the biggest understatements I could possibly ever come up with. The whole Wimbledon competition was intense since the very first round, and it was only a matter of time until we saw a match between the two best players in tennis.
Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray went head to head yesterday with quite an epic match; it was definitely the most energetic and nail-biting battle of the whole competition, especially if you’re British or Serbian.
The Men’s Final
Some people are saying that it was a one-sided match for Andy Murray, however if you were watching the game then you would know otherwise. Whilst Murray may have won in three straight sets, Djokovic was not making life easy for him. Several times the two were fighting for an advantage point where the Serbian server would just deny Murray of every point possible.
After 77 years, the Wimbledon cup has finally been won by a British champion, and if you one of the sensible people betting with Paddy Power then you would have won no matter what, as they have refunded all losing outright bets since Murray won the tournament.
The Women’s Final
It was a shock to see Serena Williams go out before the finals, but these things happen; plus she’s won Wimbledon enough times, let someone else have a go. Unfortunately, the bane of Williams couldn’t bring it home and lost to Marion Bartoli in 2 straight sets.
While Sabine Lisicki may not have won Wimbledon, she can still hold her head up high that she took on the number 1 seed and still beat her. Marion Bartoli will definitely go home happy with a trophy under her arms, even after some derogatory comments from John Inverdale.
There’s Always Next Year
So that’s another year of Wimbledon over with; the player’s will still be practising for the next event and we’ll just hold our breathe for next year’s Wimbledon. We’ve got a British male champion now, how about we start backing Laura Robson too? Couldn’t hurt to win Wimbledon twice in a row with both genders.
