After losing in the Finals of both the Australian and the French Open to Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray finally grabbed the elusive third major title he’s been looking for since he won Wimbledon three years ago, winning at the all England club for the second time today. He beat Canadian Milos Raonic, making his first ever appearance at a major Final 6-4, 7-6, 7-6.
Murray was locked in all afternoon, finally in a major final as a favorite rather than an underdog. After Djokovic was shockingly upset by Sam Querrey, Murray became the favorite even with Roger Federer potentially waiting for him in the Final, although Raonic took care of Federer’s chances in the semifinals.

Murray now heads into the Rio Olympics as the defending gold medal winner in the tennis championships.
