Murray’s straight-sets victory over Novak Djokovic in the 2013 Wimbledon men’s final may be nothing short of cosmic, highlighting the tennis player’s uncanny connection with the number seven.

Not only did Murray’s win end a 77-year-long drought for a British men’s singles champion, but the date Sunday was 7/7.

Want more? The last British Wimbledon winner, Virginia Wade, took home a win 36 years ago, in 1977.

Murray made it to the Wimbledon finals last year, but lost to Roger Federer.

Djokovic is a week younger than Murray – both are 26. Murray’s first big tournament win was the US Open last year.

Djokovic has won six major tournaments, including Wimbledon and the 2011 US Open.
