After a 77-year rift, Andy Murray brought the golden chalice of Wimbledon victory home to the UK, sweeping the men’s final in three sets against Novak Djokovic.
He took to the Wimbledon Champions Ball last night dressing the part. Both he and longtime girlfriend Kim Sears were head-to-toe in Burberry. Murray kept to high-and-tight British tradition, donning a satin-lapel tuxedo and patent leather ceremonial shoes.
For this, we’re bestowing the honor of Kempt’s Man of the Hour, which we’re sure is the real highlight in becoming a national hero and tennis legend.
Well done, sir.
The Reentry may prove a bit bumpy this time around, particularly if you were among the gluttonous few who managed to turn Fourth of July weekend into a midsummer, nine-day vacation. Here’s what you missed while manning the grill:
Syria’s president accused the US of trying to destabilize the region by providing political support to rebels fighting the regime. Secretary of State Clinton responded Pictionarily, stating: “The sand is running out of the hourglass” for Assad. Dan Rather wants you to give The Newsroom another shot, claiming that last night’s episode, the third of the season, “is something every American should see and ponder.” (Spoiler alert: it’s still Sorkin-y. 60 Minutes’ tribute to Mike Wallace, on the other hand, was not.) Andy Murray made a whole lot of little old English ladies tear up after his four-set, no-doubt-about-it loss to Roger Federer in the Wimbledon Finals yesterday, and Ernest Borgnine, Hollywood’s beloved blustery villain, has died at the age of 95.
Slow and steady…
