One month after his hopes were dashed on the same famous court at Wimbledon, Scotland's Andy Murray just won the men's tennis title at the London Olympics in front of a joyous home crowd.
He did it by defeating the same man who beat him at Wimbledon in July.
Murray bested Switzerland's Roger Federer today in straight sets, 6-2, 6-1, 6-4. Federer. (Note: In this post's original version, we said Federer was the defending Olympic champion, but he won the men's doubles in 2008. Spain's Rafael Nadal won gold at the Beijing Games. Our apologies.)
