Murray deserved to win: Novak DjokovicLondon: World No.1 Novak Djokovic, who lost the Wimbledon men`s singles final Sunday to Andy Murray, said the Briton played "fantastic tennis" and "deserved to win".

World No.2 Murray created history by becoming the first Briton since Fred Perry in 1936 to win the men’s singles title at the All England Club. The 26-year-old Scot won 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 in three hours and nine minutes.


"Congratulations to Andy. I gave it my all; it was a pleasure to be part of this match, this final. The bottom line is that he was a better player in decisive moments. Both second and third sets, I was 4-2 up and dropped the serve in those games and just allowed him to come back for no reason,” said the top seed, who now has a 11-8 record against the Scot in career meets.


“Andy was getting some incredible shots on the stretch and running down the drop shots. He was all over the court. He played fantastic tennis, no question about it. He deserved to win. I should have played better in the decisive moments," added the Serb.
