Oxshott tennis ace Andy Murray ends Britain's 76-year wait for a male singles champion

Oxshott tennis star Andy Murray quickly followed his Olympic gold medal in spectacular style by ending Britain's 76-year wait for a male Grand Slam singles champion.

Oxshott-based tennis ace Andy Murray followed up on his Olympic gold medal in spectacular style last weekend, by ending Britain's 76-year wait for a male Grand Slam singles champion.


An epic victory over Novak Djokovic in the US Open final, saw Murray, 25, emulate Fred Perrys 1936 achievement.


Murray arrived in Oxshott three years ago, moving in to an impressivemansion built by Cobham-based Avicam Homes.


His move to Surrey coincided with a string of Grand Slam finals losses, which led to him sharing an Open-era record with coach Ivan Lendl.


Like the Czech, however, the new world number three has triumphed at the fifth time of asking.
