Andy Murray ended Britain's 76-year wait for a male Grand Slam singles champion with an epic victory over Novak Jokovich in the US Open final.

The Scot finally emulated Fred Perry's 1936 achievement, winning 7-6 / 7-5 / 2-6 / 3-6 / 6-2 in four hours 54 minutes on Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Murray, the new world number three, ended Jokovich's title defence and 27-match hard court winning run at majors.

It caps a fine year for the 25-year-old, who also won Olympic gold.

But this result will arguably have a greater impact on his career and the future of tennis in the United Kingdom.
