Wimbledon: 7 is the magic number

It seems 7 really is the magic number in Wimbledon.

Andy Murray won Wimbledon last week. He was the first British man to win for 77 years. It was won on the 7th day of the 7th month. The last Brit to win a Grand Slaw (before Murray of course) was Virginia Wade in 1977. (She is now 67). Andy Murray beat Novak Djokovic last Sunday – they were born 7 days apart in 1987. I think he also won on his 7th match point. (And I think Andy Murray broke Djokovic in the 7th game of each set).

In 1985, Boris Becker won Wimbledon. He was 17 and won on 7th July.
