.Raonic acknowledged Murray was all business. Nothing cute. Nothing that could backfire and stoke Raonics Antworten

LONDON -- Milos Raonics serves flew like the fluorescent green pellets in one of those video games Andy Murray once played for hours on end. Deliveries upwards of 140 mph headed like lasers into his body.Raonic was bringing it, just as he had in a semifinal upset of Roger Federer. But all that firepower was proving insufficient. This was going to be Murrays day.It was also his great chance to win Wimbledon for himself, not for an entire (United) Kingdom hungering for its first male champion in 75 years, like in 2013.He wasnt going to let this one go, no way, no how.He wasnt going to let Raonic serve him off the court. He wouldnt bend to the unique pressure he finally commanded as the favorite to win Wimbledon or quake in the face of the renewed expectations of his passionate, partisan countrymen.Murrays resolve was well-founded and hard-earned. And it helped him play a superb match to overpower a first-time Grand Slam finalist in Raonic in a 2-hour, 48-minute 6-4, 7-6 (3), 7-6 (2) win.It is different, Murray, the No. 2 seed, said. I feel happier, more content. You know, I feel like this was sort of more for myself and my team as well.Last time, it was just pure relief. It was such a big thing for a British man to win Wimbledon. Its something you start to think about and put more and more pressure on yourself to do. I didnt really enjoy the moment as much, whereas Im going to make sure I enjoy this one more than the others.Having lost all of those finals to?Novak Djokovic?and Federer prepared Murray for his role as the favorite. He took command of this?match from the start and never loosened his grip. Raonic, one of the two or three most feared servers in the game, managed to whack just eight aces (one more than Murray). He was under constant pressure to hold serve.I think I returned pretty good today for the most part, Murray said. I made quite a lot of returns, second serve returns as well and just tried to build pressure that way.But this was no ordinary day in which Murray relied solely on his superb defense to eke out a win. His offense was no less impressive; he lost just nine points on his first serve and passed with deadly precision. Raonic reached a break point just once in the match, and that was in the third set, when he was already in a deep hole.Raonic acknowledged Murray was all business. Nothing cute. Nothing that could backfire and stoke Raonics confidence.Every single time he had forehands in the middle of the court, he was really trying to hit them, not giving me two looks at a point, Raonic said. I think thats what he did really well.Murrays great advantage in experience paid off handsomely in the late stages of the second and third sets. Raonic, 25, had won 63 percent of his tiebreakers going into Wimbledon.But when the pressure built to nearly intolerable levels in those stages, the release valve blew. Raonic made mistakes and poor choices. Murray won both tiebreakers handily.Knowing how maybe [Raonic] would have felt at those moments, being in his first Grand Slam final, I do think that helped me a little bit during the match, Murray admitted. In those tight situations, maybe I dealt with things a little better because of my experience.Murray is 29 and playing the best tennis of his life. He has been to five successive finals for the first time in his career. He has won a major and an ATP 1000 (Rome). This win was deeply satisfying in ways that none of his previous conquests have been -- much of it a result of his 5-month-old daughter.This time, Murray was not going to celebrate the simplest way.I want to spend this time with my family and my closest friends, Murray said. Thats who I want to be around right now.Then Murray will return to work, keeping up his reputation as one of the most diligent ATP pros. He now has won three majors in 11 tries. He said he would love to have won more but reminded everyone that the men he has spent most of his career battling are accorded, by some, to be perhaps the three greatest male players of all time.Murray will seek ways to find more wins against them, which may not be as formidable a task as it was two or three years ago, when Rafael Nadal and Federer were younger and healthier. Murray knows its been rare to get through a Slam without playing any of his three main rivals. But that might be changing, which would be to his advantage.I still feel like my best tennis is ahead of me, that I have an opportunity to win more, Murray said. Everyones time comes at different stages. For some, it comes in their early 20s, some mid-20s. Hopefully mine is still to come. Yeezy Outlet .

CLEVELAND -- Thrust into an awkward situation in January, Tyronn Lue finished on top in June.On Tuesday, the affable coach was rewarded for the greatest run by a Cleveland team in more than a half-century.Lue was given a multiyear contract extension with the Cavaliers, who promoted him halfway through a season that ended with a historic comeback and NBA championship.A former assistant, Lue took over when David Blatt was fired in January and led the Cavs to an unexpected title, the citys first pro sports team to win it all since the Browns in 1964.Terms of Lues extension were not immediately disclosed. The AP and other media outlets reported an agreement on the extension Monday.Cavs general manager David Griffin, who approached Lue about the job after dismissing Blatt on Jan. 22, credited the coachs steadiness in helping the team win.Ty took over our team under very trying circumstances and his calm, confident approach was invaluable as we found our way to success, Griffin said. His vision, leadership and tactical acumen were fundamental to us reaching our goals.After replacing Blatt, who was canned despite taking the team to the finals in 2015 and getting them off to a 30-11 start, Lue immediately changed the teams offense. He felt the Cavs were best when they pushed the ball up the floor, and Lue was able to better incorporate star forward Kevin Love, who was a forgotten man in Blatts system.ddddddddddddAs a former player, Lue knew when to be tough and when to ease up on his players.The opportunity to continue coaching the Cavaliers and this very special group of players is tremendous, said Lue. I am extremely appreciative of the effort and commitment that (owners) Dan Gilbert, Jeff Cohen, Nate Forbes, and David Griffin showed in extending my contract.During the playoffs, Lue became the first head coach in league history to win his first 10 postseason games. The Cavs overcame a 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals to dethrone the Golden State Warriors.Lue became the fourth-youngest head coach to win an NBA title and the third to win a championship after taking over a team mid-season, joining Pat Riley (2006 and 1982) and Paul Westhead (1980).Lue joined the Cavs as an associate head coach in June 2014. Before he was with Cleveland, Lue coached on Doc Rivers staff with the Los Angeles Clippers and Boston Celtics.The 39-year-old Lue played 11 seasons in the NBA, with 554 career games. He played on title teams with the Lakers in 2000 and 2001. ' ' '
