Andy Murray becomes the first British male since Fred Perry to win the US Open, in the second longest US Open final in history

I know we have a sports forum but this is huge!

Amazing game! Some of the best return play I've ever seen by both players.

Full kudos to Andy; ever since Wimbledon he's found a new focus & completely raised his game. This major will not be his last.

Very proud....

The number of people I've seen saying "COME ON MURRAY" on Facebook (no one springs to mind...) I'm amazed he managed to win, given he must have been under an avalanche of cum.

It was a heck of a nervy match, the quality wasn't that great till the end of the fourth set and the fifth when the wind eventually died down, but man was it tense and just as thrilling because of it! God I love tennis!

I just find it amusing that he's British when he wins, but Scottish when he looses

Congratulations to the guy - it's great to have a serious Brtitish contender in tennis at last! I'm really happy for him to have finally broke through and won a grand slam, must have been awful coming so close yet being beaten so many times. Hopefully the start of even greater things for Andy Murray!

Nice to have another British success to celebrate - disappointment seems to stick in the mind more than success with British sports, but it's been a really good year.

The best thing of all is he really had to give everything he had to take it.

What a wonderful way to win your first major, in an epic 5 set match full of chokes and momentum switches. Quality not withstanding, this match will be remembered for decades

Indeed. It's narked me a bit that recently that trope has gone from being something I always thought was a tongue in cheek bit of media-driven banter to something that people actually seem to believe.

Same here, I've never seen any evidence of it. Pretty sure that it's just something that some people simply assume due to the various portions of fish & chips on their shoulders.

It chips as in timber and joinery rather than fish.

I erm... uhh... Och Aye the Noo?

And yeah, this whole "British winner/Scottish loser" thing is something that I've only ever heard in jest from people on the wind up, or those complaining about it even though it never seems to be said

Anecdotal evidence I know, but I've yet to ever actually hear it said with any conviction.
