After 2 hours and 48 minutes, Andy Murray overcame Canadian Milos Raonic, 6-4 7-6 7-6 to claim his second Wimbledon Title. It was his sixth straight sets win of the tournament, which saw him drop only two sets en route to the title, against Frenchman Jo-Wilfred Tsonga in their quarterfinal encounter.
None more successfully than Ursue Arconada, who was part of the successful USA team which won the Compass IC World-wide Junior Challenge in 2014.
Ursue won the Girls 18 and under Wimbledon Junior Championships Doubles title at this year’s Wimbledon Championships and we send her our congratulations!
