Wimbledon Men's Final 2013; Andy Murray Vs Novak Djokovic: Murray wins, WTF Happened???
WTF happened??? This final was exactly a repeat of the Murray/Janowicz game. My spurring daughter woke me up exactly as the bell tolled. You see, it don't matter how long you have played at Wimbledon, 'butterflies' can still get to you. That was all I saw watching Djokovic play; 'butterflies' and fatigue.
Andy Murray was the surprise and it has to be said that he absolutely deserved to win. He ran down every ball. He was immaculate, obstinate and tunnel-visioned. I have never seen such sheer toughness and commitment to winning. This was sports drama as any could be. It is not only historical that Andy won Wimbledon after seventy-seven years for Britain but that he beat Djokovic in three straight sets to do it. Novak Djokovic did not get to put his name up on the score board and that is definitely a first.
What didn't I think watching this final? Did they dope Novak's Kool aid? Were the balls being remotely controlled to veer off course? Was Hawk-eye being rigged to favor Andy??? WTF was happening to Novak??? Truth be said, I have never seen Novak play so densely and make so many rookie mistakes. I would like to ask him when I catch up with him at Monaco; WTF happened Novak???
