It was one of the toughest matches and Andy Murray vs Novak Djokovic US Open tennis 2012 final lasted for just short of 5 hours (video)

From being luckless for years, it is a sort of turnaround in fortunes of Andy Murray. Last month he won the Olympics 2012 gold medal, and merely a month later he has pocketed US Open tournament gold medal. The turnaround in fortune seem sensational, if not unprecedented.

To be true, he has not just won two great tennis tournaments in just over a month’s time, he has also beaten two best tennis players of our time. First he beat Roger Federer in the London Olympics 2012 and then beat the superman of the world tennis Novak Djokovic.

But the journey was not easy and the Brit was given a tough fight, unlike the easy match he had in Wimbledon against Roger Federer in London Olympics. The 5 set match was one of the toughest of his career and when he was pronounced the winner after the gruelling match, he looked dazed, unable to believe the turnaround in his fortunes.

To be true, the Briton looked dazed and was himself looking amazed over what he did as he produced a succession of aces to close out the match. Instead of sinking to the floor or leaping the net in the traditional manner, he just stood there with his mouth open. Then, after a few seconds, the realisation dawned – he had just annihilated his old nemesis and was Britain’s first grand slam winner in more than seventy years.

Meanwhile fans are ecstatic with the Brit’s win at the US Open. A reader says, “Fantastic result for Murray winning 2012 US Open. It has been a long journey and it seems there are many of us that have joined him on this journey or perhaps identified with him as an example of the strength of the human spirit to never give up the fight. Murray is an inspiration to many that feel that at times when life can be an uphill climb but perseverance and a self belief amongst the doubters will always win out in the end”.

Many reports have called the final between Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray as epic. Fans to were mesmerised by a very tough match and say that what was amazing after the epic final was the sportsmanship in both the players. A reader says, “What a tough final. Great credit to two great players. Like golf, the sportsmanship in tennis among the top guys is so refreshing to watch. Delighted for Andy, Scotland and the UK. I hope the lasting legacy of this special sports year will concentrate the minds of our politicians on ensuring the revival of sport and facilities at schools in the state sector where it has been allowed to stagnate dreadfully”.

There is no gainsaying the fact that it was one of the best and more fiercest matches that is seen once in years. Andy Murray won the match 7-6, 7-5, 2-6, 3-6, 6-2 but it looked like eternity when he struggled for four hours and 54 minutes on the court. In such matches not just a player wins, but the game is an ultimate winner.http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=v8ZjNJInsn8
