Andy Murray on historic win: "I'm just glad it's over with"

(CBS News) Andy Murray made history Sunday, becoming the first British man to win a Wimbledon singles championship in 77 years. The last was Fred Perry in 1936.

It took the Scotsman three hours and nine minutes to defeat world No. 1 and top seed Novak Djokovic in straight sets, 6-4, 7-5, 6-4.

In an interview from London, the 26-year-old told "CBS This Morning" that he's glad the tournament is over.

Murray, describing the morning of the tournament, said the pressure of the day is tough.

"There's a lot of nerves, a lot of pressure," Murray said. "It's tough to eat and drink and stuff and obviously you're practicing for 30, 40 minutes beforehand. It's just not a pleasant morning, really, there's just so much nerves. So I'm just glad it's over with."

Temperatures on the court soared to more than 100 degrees, making play even more difficult for the players. Speaking of the match's progression, Murray said: "The start of the match physically was unbelievable tough. For most of the match, it was, but the last game was just immensely -- it was the toughest sort of four or five minutes I've had in my professional career."

In the final game, Murray's confidence that he would win seemed to waver as his Serbian opponent fought back.

Murray recalled: "I had three match points and he came back and then had break points. ... I'd lost three match points so I started to panic a little bit after that, but it's just amazing how the scoring system works in tennis. I went from being sort of comfortable and confident that I was about to win Wimbledon to I was panicking that it may not happen. It was a stressful few minutes at the end there.

"It was a crazy last game, so I was just really happy I managed to get through it in the end."

Murray is also counted as the first Scot to win Wimbledon since 1896.
