Champions create History

Though I am not an ardent Tennis fan but as a sportsperson I understand the internal mental contests that one gets to face in high pressure situations. Watching the Wimbledon final was a treat. To beat the world no. 1 required something special which could have only been delivered by a champion. On Sunday the Scottish Andy Murray was that champion. It is said champions are not born they are made. They become great players just not on the basis of their ranking but mainly because of the manner in which they are able to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. The never give up attitude defines their character which is visible on the field. After winning the first set Murray was 4-1 in the second set but he made a comeback and made it 7-5. That was a remarkable turnaround in the game.  Something similar happened in the third set as well when he was down to 4-2 and came back to win the set and the Wimbledon title. Murray displayed the attitude of a true champion. Though my heart was with the Serbian, Novak Djokovic, Murray stole it away. Though at times it looked as if Andy Murray was actually destined to win the Wimbledon, it must have been his determination and hard work that paid off. I don’t know what else helped him but Murray has now penned his name down in the history. He became the first British player after 77 years to win the Wimbledon. That’s precisely what champions do, they create history.
