Andy Murray's photo diary

As the Pimm's and superlatives dried up in the heat of a glorious summer's day, Andy Murray finally put pay to the hoodoo of British (men's) tennis. It took four championship points, but Murray defied all expectations by dispatching Novak Djokovic in straight sets. We're still mopping up the sweat and drinks from our gardens, and still can't remember how that final point played out. What a day. What a match.

The great Scot has divided opinion across the years, breaking many hearts with last year's tears and gold medal exploits. Here's a wry look at Murray's journey from moody youngster to Wimbledon men's singles champion.
