Raonic was among Murray’s victims as he clinched his first grand slam title. The fourth-round clash was expected to be a tough test for Murray but he gave a virtuoso performance. He said sorry at the net for a couple of lucky moments, to which Raonic replied: “Don’t be sorry, it was simply amazing.”
