Rusedski: 'Murray played the match of his life'

Former British number one Greg Rusedski has said Andy Murray played the "match of his life" to finally end 77 years of hurt for British tennis fans and win Wimbledon.

Rusedski said: "He got off to an absolute perfect start and found a way to get it done. We never thought he would get it done in three sets. It was just magical. Murray played the match of his life."

The former player said Murray was in a "daze" and "could not take it in" when he visited him straight after the match in the locker room.

Rusedski also boldly predicted that Murray would become the world number one and the favourite to defend his title next year.
