A “BRIT WINS WIMBELDON,” says the Mirror’s front page. Hooray. Our plan to have Roger Federer repatriated has worked. Well, down Roger. The golden cup is yours, so too the “Federer Facilities” potable male and female conveniences by Henman Hill.

But this good news is accompanies by still more good news that Murray (J) has taken top spot in the mixed doubles.

Partnered by migrant worker Jelena Jankovic (Serb), 21-year-old Jamie Murray says: “It was destiny.”

There’s Murray (J) on the Mail’s cover page – “Our first Wimbledon champ for 20 years.”

Murray (J) and his au pair beat Sweden’s Jonas Bjorkman and Australia’s Alicia Molik in three sets of unisex tennis.

“She’s good fun, that’s all I can say,” says Murray (J) of his partner. “We seem to get along pretty well. I haven’t quite got the ring yet.”

But the village church has. Ring the bells! Ring them out loud. And make mine a mixed double…

Hooray for Murray (J), the tonic to our gin…
