安迪·穆雷击败温网一号种子选手德约科维奇,夺得英国77年来的首次温网男单冠军,从而改写了历史。穆迪的这一胜利有可能使他成为世界收入最高的运动员之一。

Andy Murray will collect £1.6m in prize money for (Sunday's) victory, but that's a modest sum compared with the amount he could earn now his status as a national sporting hero has been sealed. According to his manager, Simon Fuller, Murray's victory is no less a triumph than winning the top prize in football. And he's now admired not just as a sportsman but as a personality

Andy Murray's manager, Simon Fuller:

The public has warmed to Andy. As each year passes they understand him and they warm to him, and I think people got a little insight as to how big a heart he has and how sort of passionate he is about sport and what a truly great guy, and I think that, combined with winning on court, makes for a true superstar.

Murray's already earning £15m over five years from sportswear sponsorship and he was reckoned to be worth a total of £32m even before (Sunday's) victory. If he now exploits brand Murray to the full, marketing experts believe, he could earn £15m a year, making him one of the highest earning sportsmen in the world.
