Andy Murray finally managed to break the United Kingdom's jinx at grand slam title victories, by finally winning the 2012 US Open!
Murray had been on a hot streak lately, after securing a gold medal at the London Olympics by thrashing the great Roger Federer.
IN the US Open final, the Scottish Murray faced another tennis champ on a hot streak, Novak Djokovic, and took down the Serb 7-6,7-5, 2-6, 3-6, 6-2 after a titanic battle.
Djokovic was the defending champion, and when Murray finally triumphed, the appreciative New York crowd must have been thinking: "The King is dead. Long live the King!"
