Murray Wins Wimbledon
Andy Murray captured his second Wimbledon Gentlemen's Singles Championship defeating Milos Raonic in straght sets. Three weeks prior to Wimbledon, Andy teamed again with former coach and tennis legend Ivan Lendl. "He's the best coach I've ever had," Murray stated at the time. Given the results of winning the grass court event at Queens then following with his second Wimbledon victory with Lendl in his camp, we'd say Andy has got the winning combination. Congratulations Andy and Ivan!
Wimbledon Title Means #22 for Serena
Serena Williams won her 22nd Grand Slam singles title at Wimbledon, tying Steffi Graf's record. Margaret Court holds the all-time record with 24. Serena defeated Angelique Kerber in straight sets, 7-6, 6-3, to capture her seventh Wimbledon Singles title. Despite the score, it was a well-contested, entertaining and competitive match. Serena also captured the Wimbledon doubles title with her sister Venus.
Remembering Bud Collins
Bud Collins, our sport's walking encyclopedia of tennis, passed away at the age of 86. Many of us were touched by Bud's cheerful ways, delighted by his stories and proud to be in his circle. As the tributes pour in, words cannot express the deep feeling of loss for this legend of tennis. The team here at NorthEast Tennis was fortunate to know and work with Bud and to call him our friend. We, along with so many others, are deeply saddened by his passing. [ Tribute ]
