When Andy Murray was annihilated by Roger Federer on Centre Court on Sunday morning, English tennis fans were able to commiserate themselves with the knowledge that the evening before Jonny Marray and his Danish doubles partner Freddie Nielsen won the men's doubles tournament.
And in doing so they became the first Brit to win any kind of trophy on the grass surface since 1936, following their epic 4-6, 6-4, 7-6, 6-7, 6-3 triumph over the fifth seeds, Robert Lindstedt and Horia Tecau.
The pair had entered the tournament as a wild-card duo and even in their wildest dreams couldn't have imagined getting to this stage in the fortnight.
For their successes they will share £260,000 and will probably be able to get a pint bought for them in any pub in south London anytime they want.
