First British man for 77 years (Fred Perry).

I think it's a great achievement, but I cannot warm to the guy, and I'm sure that people will be asking if he'd have won it if five or so of the top seeds hadn't withdrawn due to injury.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

Last British man to win a Wimbledon title wasn't Perry it was Jonathan Marray last year in the doubles.

OK, last British man to win the Men's Singles since Fred Perry. That's what they're all going on about in the press this morning.
