- Andy Murray’s finalist opponent was Milos Raonic. Roger Federer lost against him in the Semifinals. This is the first Wimbledon Finals for Milos.
- Andy Murray’s Finals so far was only with Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic. Since they were not present in the Finals, Andy was the most anticipated winner of the 2016 Wimbledon Men’s Singles Championship.
- He won the Gold Medal for Tennis in Olympics 2012 held in London. By this, he became the first British Champion to win the Gold in Tennis for Olympics in 100 years. Hence he would be defending the Tennis Championship for Olympics 2016 which is supposed to happen in Brazil along with Serena Williams, who won the Gold in the Women’s Tennis Championship in Olympics 2012. It is to be noted that Serena Williams is the winner of Women’s Singles in Wimbledon 2016.

- Andy Murray added Evan Lendl recently to his coaching team. Similarly, Milos Raonic’s coach was John McEnroe. The two coaches are legendary players who are analogous to Federer and Nadal in the present day. Hence, it was a tough fight not just for the finalists, but for the coaches as well.
It is to be noted that Evan Lendl coached Andy Murray from 2011 to 2014 previously, after which he moved out due to certain reasons. He has again coached him presently for the Wimbledon Championship 2016. Hence, it is evident that only during his coaching period Andy Murray has won the Grand Slam. Kudos to Andy Murray and our wishes for his upcoming Olympics in August.
