London Olympics men’s singles champion Andy Murray has shared that British crowd is doing an amazing job by supporting their stars in the best manner and it is helping British athletes.
Great Britain’s top tennis player also revealed that his morale was raised by the success of his country’s athletes in track and field events a day before his final.
Talking to media people after his success at the London Olympics, Murray said, “The crowd is unbelievable. It’s not just here but at all the events. I watched the athletics. It was amazing – it gave me a boost. The way Mo Farah won... I do 400m repetitions in my training and when I’m completely fresh I can run it in 57 seconds. His last lap after 9,600m was 53 seconds. It’s just unbelievable fitness.”
Mo Farah of Great Britain upset the favorites to win Gold Medal in the 400m race. There was more success for British athletes a day before Murray’s final and that inspired the four-time losing Grand Slam finalist to go the distance this time.
Murray thrashed the 17-time Grand Slam champion and current world number one Roger Federer to grab the Gold Medal. The British star took the revenge of his lost at the hands of Swiss star in the Wimbledon final at the same venue four weeks back.
He added, “It is amazing to be Olympic champion. I didn’t expect it at the beginning of the week. I’ve had a lot of tough losses in my career and this is the best way to come back from the Wimbledon final. I will never forget this.”
Murray was saying from the start of this year that it is his dream to win Gold Medal at the London Olympics. He rates Olympics ahead of the Grand Slams, as they come once in four years and Major championships are held four times in one year.
With his amazing run at the London Olympics, Murray has also got the favorite tag to win the US Open.
