Fred Perry would have found Andy Murray victory 'bitter-sweet' his daughter says

When Fred Perry's daughter Penny was asked what her father's reaction would have been to Andy Murray becoming the first Brit to win Wimbledon title in 77 years, she said he would have found it 'bitter-sweet'.

She told ITV News: "I think to be honest it would have been bitter sweet. I think 50% of him would have been absolutely up in the hysterical mode of the British drought is over, we have got a British champion - hail to the Brits - because he was supremely patriotic."

Penny said: "If he was human, and most people are, you would always feel that little element of when someone breaks a record. It was the same thing when Borg first beat the three times in a row [record] - that was slightly bitter-sweet."

She added: "It goes on - when Federer equalled Sampras' record - there has got to be an element of bitter-sweet, and this would probably be along the same lines. I mean he was only human."

Judy Murray 'best feeling ever' to watch Andy win Wimbledon

Andy Murray's mother Judy, told BBC Radio 5 live it was the "best feeling ever to watch your son win Wimbledon".

I was an emotional wreck but now it is the best feeling ever to watch your son win Wimbledon. I can't remember what happened in the last game but he was gutsy and determined to win that trophy today.

I have been shaking for about three hours now. I have been around tennis for many years, you can never sit back and relax and think it is in the bag. The minute you start thinking too far ahead, it is dangerous. Never count your chickens, just be as supportive as you can be but he got through in the end. He has been strong and composed all week.

I knew he had a chance to win if he brought his A game and he did that. It will be a mix of relief and joy. He will be absolutely over the moon.
