Britain reacts to Andy Murray's win

Great Britain can finally rejoice.

For the first time since 1936, a British player won the men's singles title at Wimbledon, with Andy Murray breaking through Sunday to defeat Novak Djokovic.

Whether you're into tennis or not, the storyline every year of Murray trying to end that streak is fairly recognizable to many mainstream sports fans. The pressure under which he plays every year at Wimbledon is staggering.

Thankfully for Murray, that big weight has been lifted off his shoulders.

Here is a look at how the British media covered the momentous occasion:


Sky Sports

Daily Mail


Twitter is having a fun time with it as well.

Regardless of how they're phrased, they all add up to the same finality - the streak is over.

No matter where it is or how long it takes, streaks in sports do end at some point, and in this case, with a thrilling conclusion.
