Murray "proud" to win Wimbledon again

Andy Murray has declared himself to be "proud" to have won Wimbledon for s second time after he overpowered Milos Raonic 6-4 7-6 (7-3) 7-6 (7-2) in Sunday's final.

The Scot was outstanding as he gave his opponent precious few chances to break his serve while he produced his best play when it mattered most in both tie-breakers.

Murray, who won his other Wimbledon crown in 2013, was emotional afterwards and beaming with pride.

"This the most important tournament for me every year," he told BBC Sport. "I've had some great moments here but also some tough losses the wins feels extra special because of the tough losses.

"I played really good stuff today. Milos has had a great few weeks on the grass and had some unbelievable wins, that semi-final against Roger was a great, great match.

"He is one of the harder workers out there and each time we play against each other he's made big improvements.

"A big thank you to all of my team for all the hard work they've put in to help me. To all my family watching up there, I love all of you. Thank you. I'm going make sure I enjoy winning this one, last time I was so relieved, there was so much stress and pressure I didn't get as much a chance to enjoy it.

"Huge thank you to everyone who came out to support. The Prime Minister of the country is here. Playing at a Wimbledon final is tough and I certainly wouldn't want to be Prime Minister, it's a tough job."

Raonic meanwhile paid tribute to the world number two.

"He moves incredibly well, he returns well - those are his two biggest strengths, and he's been playing well," he said.

"Every time you play him, you know he's going to get more returns back than anyone else, along with Novak."
