Speaking after the match, in which he defeated World #2 Novak Djokovic by three sets to two, Andy said:

"I'm absolutely delighted with the win. To take my first Grand Slam straight after winning Olympic gold is such a great feeling. I really appreciate the support that RBS has given me over the past ten years as I've worked towards this goal. In particular, the messages of encouragement and congratulations from RBS people have been countless, and they've meant a great deal to me and my family."

RBS has sponsored Andy for over ten years. Since 2011 our partnership has been centred around Set4Sport - a programme created by Andy's mum Judy, and inspired by her years of experience as a tennis coach and parent. Set4Sport showcases easy and accessible ways for parents to play with their children that help develop the skills required for playing sport.
