The Brits have been waiting 77 years for a hometown hero to win Wimbledon, and this year they have crowned Andy Murray as their savior. Andy defeated the number one seed Novak Djokovic in straight sets; 6-4, 7-5, 6-4. It wasn't even close! But give Novak some credit as everybody in the building except for his mom and dad were cheering for Andy.

Marion Bartolli is the new champion of Ladies tennis. This french woman made it to the Wimbledon Finals 6 years ago but fell to the once-powerful Venus Williams. Well Marion is back and this little 5 '7' bundle of jolt destroyed her tall, muscular opponent Sabine Lisicki in 2 straight sets 6-1, 6-4. Most people have never even heard of these two finalists so you could say women's tennis is changing with lots of potential champions.
