Raonic falls to Murray in Wimbledon final

Milos Raonic came up against a determined opponent in Andy Murray at Wimbledon today.

World No. 2 Murray won his third Grand Slam title over the Canadian on Sunday, in three tough-fought sets 6-4, 7-6 (3), 7-6 (2). The match lasted two hours and 48 minutes, and saw only one break of serve, earned by Murray in the first set.

Raonic was gracious in defeat and stated his determination to return to Centre Court on final Sunday once again.

Raonic was making not only his first appearance in a Grand Slam singles final, but the first by a Canadian man in history. This comes after he also was the first Canadian male in the Open Era to make a Grand Slam singles quarter-final (2014 Roland Garros) and semifinal (2014 Wimbledon).

Murray, meanwhile, joined just 12 men in sharing multiple Wimbledon titles, and the first British man to do so since Fred Perry in 1935.

Next up for Raonic will be Rogers Cup presented by National Bank in Toronto from July 23-31, where he will surely receive a warm homecoming from his Canadian fans. Murray is set to return to Rogers Cup as well, as defending champion.
