Murray Finally Wins A Major

Andy Murray finally ended the 76 years long wait for a British male Grand Slam winner when he beat defending champion Novak Djokovic to win the US Open in a five sets contest that last nearly as many hours. And afterwards he admitted: “I don't know how I managed to come through in the end.”



Djokovic Now Aiming To Regain Number One Ranking

Novak Djokovic refused to be disconsolate after losing his US Open title to Andy Murray and insisted his aim for the remainder of 2012 is to reclaim the world no.1 ranking he lost to Roger Federer after Wimbledon.

“I'm going to try to recover from this and move on. Any loss is a bad loss.  There is no question about it.  I'm disappointed to lose the match, but in the back of my mind I knew that I gave it all.  I really, really tried to fight my way back through.”


US Girls Progressing

With each passing month, it looks like the legendary Williams sisters will have some back up in the singles ranks sometime soon. Serena won her 15th Grand Slam title at the US Open on Sunday and on the same day, American Samantha Crawford of Atlanta captured the 2012 US Open Girls' Championship with a 7-5, 6-3 victory over Anett Kontaveit of Estonia.


More Players Qualify For Istanbul
