Murray Suffers Great Disappointment, But He Will Bounce Back

As the thick black cloud of abject disappointment gradually dissipates in Andy Murray’s mind after his Wimbledon final defeat, the positives of the 25 year-old Scot’s campaign begin to sink in and his determination is now stronger than ever before to end a 76 year wait for a British male Grand Slam singles champion and claim Olympic gold for his nation on the same Centre Court.

“Sunday was painful, but the prospect of attempting to win a gold medal is already spurring me on,” maintained Murray who accepts the fact he will not have coach Ivan Lendl in his corner for the Olympics but re-iterated the influence of the former world no.1 is closing the gap between simply being a Grand Slam contender and a champion.


Playing Golf is a Great Relaxation for Djokovic

Playing 18 holes of golf is not the usual reaction of a defending champion after losing his Wimbledon crown but that was Novak Djokovic’s say of purging his disappointment after last Friday’s semi-final defeat to Roger Federer.

Djokovic contacted Surbiton Golf Club, about eight miles distant from the All England Club and requested a tee-time as quickly as possible. Together with three of his support team, Djokovic played a full round before finishing around 9pm.


Mouratoglou Has Role in Williams’ Win

Serena Williams emotional victory at Wimbledon highlighted the effort that her team put into her well being post her pulmonary embolism of February 2011, which almost ended her career.

There were two key members of her team whom she thanked; her long time hitting partner and touring coach, Sasha Bijan, and her new coaching consultant Patrick Mouratoglou, who owns his own academy in France. Serena began working with Mouratoglou after Virginie Razzano stunned her in the first round of Roland Garros.

Mouratoglou wouldn't reveal exactly what he was working on with Serena, but she said that she was hitting serves at his academy and she ended up setting a Wimbledon women's record with 102 aces.


Things Looking Up for Canada

The good news for Canada continues, with two of the northern nation's juniors winning the Wimbledon girls and boys crowns. A day after Eugenie Bouchard won the girls' singles with a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Elina Svitolina of Ukraine, Filip Peliwo followed suit by winning the boys' singles crown by taking out No. 1 Luke Seville of Australia 7-5, 6-4.

With Milos Raonic also having become a top 30 player on the ATP Tour, things are looking up.
