Andy Murray displays the trophy after defeating Novak Djokovic in the U.S. Open.

Britain’s Andy Murray finally has a Grand Slam title, winning the U.S. Open Monday against defending champion Novak Djokovic of Serbia 7-6 (10), 7-5, 2-6, 3-6, 6-2. It wasn’t easy, taking 4 hours and 54 minutes for Murray to claim victory after he let the third and fourth sets slip away after taking the first two, including a 25-minute, 22-point tiebreaker in the first set. But in the end, he came out on top and won the first Grand Slam men’s singles title for Britian in 76 years. The validating victory for Murray came just one month after he won the gold medal in front of a home crowd at the London Olympics.
