Wimbledon final – Murray vs Djokovic

ISU, update

On Sunday afternoon, we visited what has become our local Irish “watering hole” in Strasbourg, The Dubliners. They show most British sports and they have a great atmosphere both inside and out. We went there to watch the Wimbledon men’s singles final between Andy Murray (UK) and Novak Djokovic (Serbia).

It was a tough match between the two players. Djokovic sure gave Murray a run for his money. Each set was more close than the next.

With sets 2-0 to Murray, he only needed one more set to beat Djokovic. At 5 games to 4 (5-4) and at deuce (40-40) there was every chance Djokovic would win the game and go on to take the set to make it 2-1 in sets. All Murray needed was this competition point. As the game went it it took four deuces to secure Andy Murray the set, game and match.

Score in final game.
