To be fair the last British person to win a Wimbledon singles final was Virginia Wade in 1977, but Murray is indeed the first Brit to take the men's singles in almost 80 years. He is also the first Brit to win the title wearing shorts(Fred Perry wore trousers).

Nice win for the home crowd. Gave them something to cheer about.

And another sports announcer stuck his foot in his mouth when he said the Woman's Wimbledon champ had to work harder in life to succeed because she wasn't attractive. So far the BBC is refusing to fire him, but the pressure is building.

John Inverdale incensed radio listeners before Bartoli beat German Sabine Lisicki when he asked if people thought her father told her when little that she was never going to be "a looker" like Maria Sharapova so would have to fight harder for success.

John Inverdale is a great announcer and he was only stating facts, she aint a looker.

Be a shame if he got fired for that.

Whether he's a good announcer or not............he's an idiot for opening his mouth with that statement.

But funnily enough she had Amélie Mauresmo in her court,who for years had rumours circulating that she was previously a man.

Maybe or maybe the politically correct idiots say so.

Look at a picture of her and tell me you dont agree.

I think he's right. But its politically incorrect to call her ugly especially for a broadcaster.

You can also put Andy Murray in that category. Pale, anemic but one helluva tennis player.

I haven't listened to the announcers comments, but on the surface it is dumb. Attractiveness or lack does play a tangential role in how others treat you in life. I don't believe for one minute that this woman had to work harder on the court to be successful because of her looks. Winning in sports is about performance on the court or on the field. Maybe this woman won't be a cover girl but that is something outside of the sports competition. Bartoli can't fight harder to be a cover girl, she just won't be one. Once stepping on the court, Maria Sharapova and Marion Bartoli are only unequal in regards to their physical talent and tennis skills.

Murray played well in the final and throughout the entire tournament. His tournament win is well deserved.

Djokovich despite being the number one ranked player he clearly is struggling physically this year and is not playing anywhere near the physical and mental level from last year.
