[FORENAME] [SURNAME] rounded off a remarkable fortnight yesterday when he/she won the Wimbledon Women's/Men's Singles title, in front of a capacity Centre Court crowd. [AGE]-year-old [SURNAME] triumphed over favourite and number one seed Serena Williams/Novak Djokovic, in a titanic three-set tussle that will go down in history as one of the greatest finals of all time.
[SURNAME], a wild card entrant, was relatively unknown when the tournament began a fortnight ago. He/She showed incredible skill and stamina to take the title despite losing the first set on a tie break. The [LOCATION] star looked to be down and out at that stage but, in a remarkable turnaround, he/she won the next set 6-4 before winning the decider 7-5. Williams/Djokovic had no answer for the powerful serves and punishing returns from [FORENAME], which became more and more effective as the game wore on.
His/Her tennis has progressed at an amazing rate this year. A string of fine victories at his/her local club saw him/her recently become [LOCATION] Men's/Women's Singles Champion. Even so no-one could have predicted that he/she would ever attain the form that he/she achieved during the last fourteen days.
His/Her semi-final win was particularly impressive, although most experts expected the attractive, intelligent ace [SURNAME] to struggle in the final against Williams/Djokovic. The first set was especially hard-fought but, despite sending down a series of monster serves, [SURNAME] could not prevent his/her opponent taking the first set.
"You can do it [FORENAME]", came a shout from the stands. [SURNAME] appeared to steel himself/herself and straight away, [FORENAME] knew all was not lost. Summoning up all of his/her strength, [SURNAME] served hard to Williams/Djokovic left and, even though his/her 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/her racket and, within less than half an hour, he/she had won the second set to level the match. The final set was another tight affair but, after taking a 6-5 lead, [SURNAME] knew he/she was just one game away from winning the Wimbledon Title. With his/her family cheering him/her on, [SURNAME] won the first point with a wonderful top-spin lob before two forehand winners gave him/her match point.
The tension was unbelievable. As the crowd fell silent Williams/Djokovic sent down a powerful first serve but, keeping his/her eye firmly on the ball as it moved towards him/her, [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/her knees.
When interviewed by the BBC's Sue Barker the modest [SURNAME] said "People always told me I could be good, now I've got a trophy to prove I'm the best player in the world!"
