Andy Murray's Magical Moment: Celebrating a Third Major Triumph at Wimbledon

Andy Murray secured his third and last Major crown at Wimbledon 2013, edging Milos Raonic 6-4, 7-6, 7-6 in two hours and 47 minutes to lift the trophy in front of the partisan crowd. It was Andy's 11th and last Major final, with no Roger Federer or Novak Djokovic on the other side of the net for the first time!

Raonic, a first-time Major finalist, gave his best while chasing his first Major trophy, only to lose the pivotal points and settle for a runner-up spot. The Canadian ousted Roger Federer in the semi-final and pushed Murray to the limits in the title clash.

However, the Briton endured all the obstacles and tamed the rival's aggression to seal the deal in straight sets. Milos rushed to the net, and Andy was ready for that, with his backhand passing shot working like a charm and earning the title for him.

Murray had to tame Raonic's booming serve, and he did that in style, reducing his rival to eight aces and 67% of the first serve won.

Andy Murray ousted Milos Raonic in the 2016 Wimbledon final.

Milos got broken once, but he had to do more to remain competitive before the tie breaks, reaching only two deuces and two break points on Andy's serve.

Andy sprayed 12 unforced errors and had the upper hand in the most extended rallies. Milos hit 30 unforced errors and missed some routine forehands that cost him dearly. Murray created a break chance in the encounter's third game, and Raonic denied it with a solid attack to avoid an early setback.

Andy pushed strong on the return at 3-3 and grabbed a break when Milos netted a volley. The Briton served well and wrapped up the first part of the clash with a hold in game ten. Murray tamed his strokes nicely in the second set and landed 12 winners and four unforced errors.

He served at 75% and kept his second serve safe, mounting the pressure on the other side. Milos had to dig deep from the first game, saving a break point and experiencing more issues in games seven and nine. Raonic denied four break points to stay in touch, relieved after reaching a tie break.

Feeling no pressure, Andy grabbed mini-breaks in the first and fifth points to bring the breaker home and open a massive two sets to love advantage. Murray squandered it at Majors only once, and this was not the day to repeat the same mistake!

Milos stayed competitive and played his best tennis in the third set, never experiencing deuce behind the initial shot. In addition, Raonic finally got one more lagging service game from Murray and created two break chances at 2-2.

Andy saved both to remain on the positive side, and they both served well to arrange another tie break. Murray grabbed three mini-breaks to control the pace and clinch the breaker 7-2 after a service winner that carried him toward his third and final Major title.
