The Scot made himself an instant hero in his first appearance in the main draw as an 18-year-old.

Murray made it through to the third round, where he led former finalist Nalbandian by two sets to love on Centre Court before fading physically.

A Wimbledon love affair had been established.

The match that established Murray’s reputation for never giving up.

The 21-year-old was two sets and a break down before recovering to reach the quarter-finals of a grand slam for the first time.

The backhand down the line during the third-set tie-break that left him almost in the crowd is one of his most memorable shots.

Murray’s first experience under the new Centre Court roof turned out to be one of his most dramatic matches.

Taking on one of the most familiar opponents of his career, Swiss Wawrinka, the pair battled for nearly four hours and finished at 10.39pm in what was the first Wimbledon match to be played fully indoors.

One of Murray’s most painful defeats was also the occasion that turned the tide of his relationship with the British public after a rocky few years.

Having finally won a semi-final at the fourth time of asking, the Scot took on Centre Court king Federer. He won the first set but a pivotal second went the Swiss’ way and Murray could not reclaim the momentum.

Murray’s tears in his on-court interview helped him shake his dour image.

Murray’s first meeting at Wimbledon with his big rival came in the last four of the Olympics on Centre Court.

A high-quality and tense match went the way of a fired-up Murray, who played aggressive tennis and used the crowd to his advantage.

“It’s the most fun I’ve had at any tournament,” he said afterwards.

Admittedly he was facing a tired Federer but this was complete domination in front of a raucous and disbelieving Centre Court crowd.

Superb throughout, the final game was a match in itself before Murray at last got his hands on the golden trophy.

Murray’s battles with his hip kept him away from Wimbledon in singles for four years, with his return coming in 2021.

His body may have let him down but the famous Murray battling spirit was fully intact and he took the Centre Court crowd on another rollercoaster ride before winning in five sets.

What has proved to be Murray’s final Wimbledon singles match was a fitting way to go out in all but the result.

The Scot produced his best level since 2016 and might have beaten Tsitsipas had play not been suspended overnight after the third set, but the Greek fought back impressively.
