Wimbledon Re-Lived 2013: Andy’s Title, Judy’s Journey

In the penultimate episode of Wimbledon Re-Lived, we take ourselves back to July 7th 2013 when Andy Murray became the first British man to win Wimbledon since 1936 by beating Novak Djokovic 6-4, 7-5, 6-4.

In what way had the British public come to embrace Murray before the 2013 final? What impact had Ivan Lendl had on Murray’s game and his rivalry with Djokovic? How much of a factor was the weight of Britain’s 77-year drought for Murray? Why did Djokovic put in a flat performance? And what was everyone feeling during that final game?

We also speak at length to Judy Murray about the journey that led to the 2013 Wimbledon final and her experiences of that day. Judy talks about how the 2012 Olympics helped Murray to get over his Wimbledon final defeat to Federer, the stress of sitting in the player box at Wimbledon, the scrutiny she faced for her role in Murray’s career, the champion’s dinner, and how Murray’s victory in 2016 compared.
