2012 U.S. Open Tennis Results: Andy Murray Finally Has His Major

Andy Murray has his first major championship after beating No. 2 Novak Djokovic in five thrilling sets at the 2012 U.S. Open.

Murray has come close so many times before to gaining glory on the biggest stages in the tennis world. Now, Murray can rest easy after dispatching Djokovic 7-6 (12-10), 7-5, 2-6, 3-6 and 6-2.

Murray appeared in control and ready to win the match after two sets, but then things took a turn. Djokovic showed why he's a champion, fighting back to dominate the third and fourth sets to force the fifth and deciding one.

From that point on, Murray refused to be denied on this windswept Monday night in Flushing, N.Y.

In what was statistically a very even contest, the Great Britain product made the pressure shots when he had to, just like this summer at the 2012 London Olympics.

No longer will Murray be one of the players topping lists of the greatest without a major.
