Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson has wished Andy Murray good luck in tomorrow’s Wimbledon final against Roger Federer.
The 25-year-old Scot is bidding to become the first man to win the title since Fred Perry tasted success in 1936.
Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson MSP said:
“Andy Murray has already shown true Scottish grit and flair to win a place in the history books by becoming the first British man in 74 years to reach a Wimbledon final.
“This is the moment he has been waiting all his life for, and tomorrow he will have five million screaming Scots and the rest of Britain willing him on to victory.
“He now stands on the brink of glory and I’m sure he can go a step further by winning his first Grand Slam title to take his rightful place alongside the legendary Fred Perry.
“Go for it tomorrow Andy, you can do it and create your own slice of history.”
A victory for Andy Murray would see him become the third Briton to win a title at Wimbledon in Jubilee years, following successes by Virginia Wade in 1977 and Fred Perry in 1935.
