Andy Murray’s historic win at Wimbledon yesterday has birthed a new age of tennis fans looking to cheer on the sportsman at his future games. Lovers of the game now have more confidence in the Brit and are hoping for a repeat of yesterday at the US Open later in the year.
Though not till the 26th August, the US Open is the next chance for Murray to prove his win at Wimbledon was not a one-time occurrence and win his third major tournament. Predictions for the Grand Slam event, held in New York, are already seeing Murray as a top contender as the 26-year-old stays at the top of his game.
British fans of the sport and supporters of Murray are now expected to fly to the USA at the end of August to see the sports star battle his way to the finals again. The timing of the event is also a perfect time to visit the state, as Labour Day celebrations will also take place on the first weekend of the tournament.
People who want to catch a glimpse of the Scotsman on the hard courts in New York need to act fast, as tickets to the US Open are quickly selling out. However, the courts are not the only place to view the matches as screens will be erected all over New York City showing all the big matches during the two weeks.
Andy Murray made history yesterday when he became the first Brit to win Wimbledon in 77 years. The world number 2 beat world number 1 Novak Djokvic in three sets wining 6-4 7-5 6 -4 to claim his second major title.
