Andy Murray wins his first grand slam - US Open 2012 winner

Andy Murray was fifth time lucky... winning his first grand slam title playing in his fifth finals at a grand slam.

Britain's Andy Murray beat Serbian Novak Djokovic in a gruelling 5-setter to clinch his first grandslam at the US Open 2012 championships. Murray outlasted defending champion Djokovic 7-6 (10), 7-5, 2-6, 3-6, 6-2 after nearly five hours to become the first British man to win a Grand Slam title since Fred Perry captured the Wimbledon and the U.S. Championships in 1936.  Wimbledon 2013 waiting??

With his grand slam winning credentials put to rest, Murray will be looking to add more to his collection. 

2012 Australian Open Champion - Novak Djokovic
2012 French Open Champion      -  Rafael Nadal
2012 Wimbledon Champion         -  Roger Federer
2012 US Open Champion            -  Andy Murray

Do we see the pattern here :)  2013 looks to be mouth watering with all the top four men's tennis players being in good form....  hope Nadal recovers fully from his injury and hope Federer still has the hunger in him to win more.. also hope Djokovic comes back to his usual form again.... hope Murray carries forward this victory march.... hoping lots ain't I :D
