August 6, 2012

LONDON, August 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Simon Fuller managed Andy Murray wins epic victory against Roger Federer in

a 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 victory.

Andy Murray joined the ranks of the Olympic gold medal winners after securing an
emphatic victory over Roger Federer in the Olympic Men’s Singles final at Wimbledon. He
became the first British man to win Olympic gold in the tennis since Josiah Ritchie in
1908.

Murray’s victory was secured after one hour and 56 minutes in front of a packed Centre
Court and a global TV audience of many millions:

“It’s number one for me. The biggest win of my life,” Andy Murray said after the game.
“I have had a lot of tough losses in my career and this is the best way to come back from
the Wimbledon final.”

After beating Djokovic in the semi-final, Murray was full of confidence going into
Sunday’s final. He saved two break points in the opening game and then went on to dominate
the first set before breaking serve in the sixth game, and taking the set 6-2. This
comprehensive display set the tone for the rest of the match, with Murray racing into a
3-0 lead in the second set despite saving six break points in the third game, going on to
a 6-1 second set victory. Although the final set was closer, finishing at 6-4, Murray
always looked likely to win Team GB’s 16th gold medal at the summer games.

Simon Fuller [http://www.xixentertainment.com ], Andy Murray’s manager, said after the
game, “What an incredible day for Andy, not only for winning an Olympic Gold, but for
winning here at Wimbledon during London 2012 in front of his home fans. This is a
justified reward for all his hard work and devotion. Andy is an exemplary sportsman and an
inspiration for a young British sporting generation. I am proud to be associated with him
at this special moment and certain that this will be the first of many more great
victories.”

Shortly after the game Andy Murray competed in the Final of the Mixed Doubles with his
partner Laura Robson, winning a silver medal.
