Andy Murray has done it. Murray won the U.S. Open in a thrilling final vs. Novak Djokovic 7-6 (10), 7-5, 2-6, 3-6, 6-2 for his first career Grand Slam title. He became the first Brit to win a major title since Fred Perry in 1936 and caps off an impressive summer that saw Murray reach the Wimbledon final and win Olympic gold. The match featured grueling rallies and incredible shotmaking and counterpunching from both players, but Murray was able to prevail in just under five hours.
