Woohooohooo! Totally exhausted this morning but it was well worth it to witness a defining moment in British sport. What a summer it's been!

Can't wait to watch the replay tonight, wonder when it will sink in for Andy, he just looked shocked at the end, so pleased for him, read something on line this morning that made me smile, a reporter said to Andy he didn't look very happy and Andy replied "I'm happy on the inside"  w00t  Brilliant stuff Andy, many more to come.  yay

Lots of coverage on BBC World - headline in fact. Andy also made NZ national news twice - a headline story as well as the main sports item.

Right, chocolate and tea to hand to start watching the match tv catch you all later wave

Just reading the full match report with somewhat bleary eyes. Excellent work. The best summary of the match I've seen (and I was reading plenty online in the early hours trying to make what I'd seen sink in!)

"The voice in the head that told the Olympic champion never to give up, always to believe, to run that one step further, and hit that one ball extra, persisted like a wasp around a Coke can" - perfect simile for the sheer bloody minded brilliance that got Andy over the finish line last night.

Stuck with it from start to finish. A great match, but what a pity that Djokovitch  threw in the the dying man's last throw  "When all else fails call in the trainer" just before the final point.
Aye. I was cursing Djokovic for that along with the absolutely useless umpire who seemed to sit catatonically while the New York crowd where roaring and whistling over every serve. In the end though this new Murray 2.0 just ate it up and spat it out and did it his way.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

What the hell is this headline all about?

It's time to celebrate! Andy Murray's first thought after winning US Open is to look for his expensive Rado watch so he can pose with trophy while wearing it to please sponsors

How cheap of them!!!!!!!!
I remember once even Rafa after winning a GS (dont remember which one) was frantic searching for his watch..
At that time such headlines wont appear, right???

I think someone in his box shouted at him to put on the watch, I don't think it was foremost in Andy's mind tbh.

It certainly was on his mind. He went over to his box to get the watch and then Kim shouted it was in his black bag...

Don't understand why people are making such a fuss out of it. He gets paid to do this, who cares? Definitely not front page spread news.

Great report, Nigel.

So delighted for Andy, after all his years of hard work and 4 previous grand slam disappointments.

I watched the screen active and recordings of the 5th set until 3.15, when I got to bed happy but exhausted.

In the office now, but have not done any work. I have spent all my time since 8.30 am reading all the various papers' reports and worldwide tweets.

Well done, Andy. First of many.

Nigel, I'm waiting the vision of your cigar smoking and please will someone else post a vision drinking champagne. I have to see these pictures as I neither smoke nor drink. But I want to toast Andy's success.

Incidentally, Djokovic's medical time out is typical of the man. I hope Andy tells him later precisely what he thinks of his (ND) actions.

Great result once again and at 3.15 I WAS close to happy tears.

Wonder if Andy Murray will become an authentic British clothing manufacturer like Fred Perry in 70 odd years! Very Happy
