After a tense match for the men’s singles finals at Wimbledon, Andy Murray is the straight-sets victor after beating Canada’s Milos Raonic 6-4, 7-6, and 7-6 on centre court.
Raonic was looking to win his first Wimbledon title and to become the first player representing Canada to win a Grand Slam title.
The native of Thornhill, Ontario, would have been the first player other than Roger Federer, Novac Djokovic, Murray or Rafael Nadal to win Wimbledon since Lleyton Hewitt in 2002.
Murray secured his second Wimbledon win, and third Grand Slam title.
Canadians rallied together in Toronto today for a special viewing of the match.
Tennis Canada, the organization that operates the annual Rogers Cup in Toronto and Montreal, organized the event for fans to watch Raonic play.
Organizers handed out T-shirts with Raonic’s face. Fans cheered, clapped and banged together inflatable Canada-themed noisemakers.
