Well done

To Andy Murray who has rounded off a wonderful summer of sport in the UK by winning the US Open last night.

It's his first grand slam (and I'm sure it won't be his last, he's always had the talent and the game but what was missing in many of his previous GS finals was the mentality) and he ended Britain's seventy-six year wait for a male GS champion. And he won it on the same day that our last GS champion Fred Perry won the US Open in 1936.

That means this year's grand slams have all been won by different players:

Aussie Open - Novak Djokovic
French Open - Rafael Nadal
Wimbledon - Roger Federer
US Open - Andy Murray

And of course Andy also won gold at the summer Olympics.

With the final parade through London yesterday by our Olympians and Paralympians the final 'event' of London 2012 it really was a wonderful day all round and for it to culminate in a British GS champion really was the icing on the cake.
