Team Dunlop’s Max Purcell is officially a Grand Slam CHAMPION and not just any Grand Slam champion – A WIMBLEDON CHAMPION. Max Purcell and his partner Matt Ebden won the fabled title in dramatic fashion after five breath taking sets and a nail biting super tie break.
Purcell went up against Mektic and Pavic, winning 7-6(5), 6-7(3), 4-6, 6-4, 7,6(2) that took them and the crowd well into the late evening as the set sun over centre court. It was no easy road for the Australian duo though as they took part in no less than five, five set matches, winning both the first round and the semi-final from 2 sets down.
It is the third time Purcell has reached a Grand Slam final, having featured into two Australian Opens, including this year, but that final has so far alluded him. Not this time though, it was a triumphant result with some scintillating Tennis that saw Purcell really hit top form. He was already in good form coming into the tournament having qualified for the singles event too.
Dunlop will be running a promotion for some Max Purcell items on social media, so keep and eye out for that.
