Soon after Andy Murray’s first Wimbledon win, rumours spread that he had given his Wimbledon prize money of £1.6 million to the cancer centre of Royal Marsden Hospital. However Britain’s top seed has denied all such news.
Rumours about the donation of his prize money won at Wimbledon to Royal Marsden Hospital had spread all over Twitter ( a social-networking site) but soon it was refused by the Scot.
Perhaps there was a misunderstanding in the conveyance of the news. The World No. 2 had donated his Queen’s prize money and not his Wimbledon prize money. A media reporter asked Murray about it and Murray denied any news of donating his Wimbledon prize money to the cancer hospital.
Andy Murray bagged his first Wimbledon crown today after defeating Novak Djokovic in the finals 6-4, 7-5, 6-4. This was the Brit’s second Grand Slam win, first being his US Open last year. With this win in his bag, Murray became the first British male tennis player to win the Championships after 77 years. 77 years earlier in 1936 Britain’s Fred Perry had won the title.
After losing last year against Roger Federer in the finals, Andy Murray was declared this year’s winner where he battled past Novak Djokovic in straight sets.
