Andy Murray: US Open Champ!

Better late than never.

9 months ago, when I heard that Andy Murray had hired Ivan Lendl as his coach, I thought, “He’ll probably fire him in six months, just like the others.”

I was wrong.  Again.  Which is fine.  I hate being right all the time.

On Monday night, Andy Murray became the US Open champion.  It was his first Grand Slam, and the first Grand Slam won by a British player in 76 years.  (Or was it 3,000 years?)  He had to beat the reigning US Open Champ, Novak Djokovic, and it took him 5 sets and nearly 5 hours to do it.

In the end, it was worth the wait.

Congratulations Andy.  You are truly British now, and you are truly a member of the Big 4.

I know Andy, it’s a shock.  But you’ll get used to it!
