Here’s Roger in his post-match presser talking about this U.S. Open championship and his year so far:
I always knew that if I were to get one Slam under my belt, especially the last one, things weren’t looking that bad like everybody was talking about… I would have been disappointed, you know, losing today and having three finals and one semis of Slams. You feel like you missed an entire year, you know, being so close but yet so far, because semis and finals don’t help me a whole lot anymore in my career. It’s all about the wins, and that’s why this is huge. This is massive, really, and I’m very, very happy about this Grand Slam obviously. It’s a different type of flavor, this one, to me, no doubt. And I can definitely go into the rest of the season more relaxed now, and then also looking forward with great spirits for next year.
And here’s Murray’s take on his million dollar check: “That’s about 10 pounds, isn’t it?”
