Murray was the gentlemen’s singles runner-up in 2012 after losing to Roger Federer. Murray’s first win in 2013 had great significance to him and his country. For the previous 77 years, no Brit had won the men’s championship. Murray successfully broke the curse after more than three hours of play. Source: Wimbledon, BBC
