All hail Andy Murray

Wow. Andy Murray is really something. In a spectacular display of tennis skills, Murray defeated Serb Novak Djokovic 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 to win the 2013 Gentlemen's Wimbledon Championship.

It wasn't exactly what one would normally consider a drubbing or a rout, but it was pretty convincing nonetheless. I doubt many foresaw Murray knocking off Djokovic in straight sets. After all, there's a reason, actually many of them, the Serb has been ranked #1 in the world for a while. He's an all-around fantastic player himself.

In the post-match on-court interviews, both men showed what class individuals they are. In my opinion, they exhibited a perfect blend of thank-yous, appreciation, grace, and humility. Gentlemen indeed.

While Djokovic certainly remains a formidable opponent, let's not forget Murray also won the gold medal at the Olympics a while back.

And now finally -- FINALLY -- after 77 loooooong years, a native son has recaptured his homeland's ultimate tennis prize.

He earned it, he deserved it, well done, and bravo to Andy Murray.

Let the party begin.
