 Andy Murray defeated Novak Djokovic in an absolutely thrilling five-setter at the U.S. Open Final. The victory marks the first Grand Slam of Murray’s career.

Djokovic made it tough on Murray, forcing Andy to five sets after Murray led two sets to love. In the end, Novak’s comeback fell short, as Murray won the memorable final 7-6 (10), 7-5, 2-6, 3-6, 6-2.

Britain’s Fred Perry won the 1936 U.S. Championships (now known as the U.S. Open). It took until today for another Brit to win a Grand Slam singles championship.

76 years is a long time, but the 25-year-old Scot is happy to be the man to break through. After the victory, Murray was moved to tears and at a loss for words as to how he got it done.

“Novak is so, so strong. He fights until the end in every single match,” Murray explained. “I don’t know how I managed to come through in the end.”

 The enthralling final took 4 hours and 54 minutes, tying the record for longest U.S. Open final.
