[FORENAME] [SURNAME] rounded off a remarkable fortnight yesterday when he won the Wimbledon Men's Singles title, in front of a capacity Centre Court crowd. [AGE]-year-old [SURNAME] triumphed over favourite and number one seed, Roger Federer, in a titanic five-set tussle that will go down in history as one of the greatest finals of all time. [SURNAME], who entered the tournament as a wild card entrant and relative unknown, showed incredible skill and stamina to take the title against all the odds, despite losing both of the first two sets on tie breaks.
The [LOCATION] star looked to be down and out at that stage but, in a remarkable turnaround, he won the next two sets 6-4, 6-4, before winning the decider 7-5. Federer had no answer for the powerful serves and punishing returns from [FORENAME], which became more and more effective as the game wore on. His tennis has progressed at an amazing rate this year. A string of fine victories at his local club saw him become [LOCATION] Men's Singles Champion. Even so, no-one could have predicted that he would ever attain the form that he achieved during the last fourteen days.
His semi-final win was particularly impressive, although most experts expected the [LOCATION] ace to struggle in the final against Federer. The first two sets were especially hard-fought but, despite sending down a series of monster serves, [SURNAME] could not prevent his Swiss opponent taking a two-set lead, thanks to successive tie break wins. After changing ends at the conclusion of the second set, [SURNAME] looked into the packed grandstands where he saw his friends and family who had travelled to London to watch the final. â€œYou can do it [FORENAME]", came the shout from the stands and, straight away, [FORENAME] knew all was not lost.
Summoning up all of his strength, [SURNAME] served hard to Federer's left and, even though his opponent somehow got the ball back over the net, the [LOCATION]-based star was ready at the net to hammer home a winning volley. Winner after winner flew from his racket and, within less than an hour, he had won the next two sets to level the match. The Centre Court crowd rose to their feet time after time as [SURNAME] made the most amazing comeback Wimbledon has ever seen. The final set was another tight affair but, after taking a 6-5 lead, [SURNAME] knew he was just one game away from winning Wimbledon.
With his family cheering him on, [SURNAME] won the first point with a wonderful top-spin lob before two forehand winners gave him match point. The tension on centre court was unbelievable. The crowd eventually fell silent as Federer, with three Championship points against him, sent down a powerful first serve but, keeping his eye firmly on the ball as it moved towards him, [SURNAME] hammered it back across the net and watched as it bounced on the baseline, out of the favourite's reach.
The crowd went absolutely wild as [SURNAME] fell to his knees. Wimbledon, and indeed tennis had a new hero. When interviewed by the BBC's Sue Barker the modest [SURNAME] said. â€œPeople always told me I could be good, now I've got a trophy to prove that I am the best player in the world!"
