One is a Wimbledon champion and Britain’s current favourite son after making tennis history.

The other is a morning TV presenter most famous for her nickname Willoughboobies.guaranteed rental properties

So it was no surprise when the pair met for an interview Holly Willoughby was no match for Andy Murray.

Trying to get the tennis champion to tell her if he was going to propose to girlfriend Kim Sears, the presenter posed the tactless question: ‘I’m trying to think what you’re next challenge will be.

‘You’ve had the US Open, the Olympics, now Wimbledon, could it be popping the question?’

Murray, 26, replied: ‘I only met you like ten minutes ago so I wouldn’t be telling you first.’

The tennis star who, has been dating Miss Sears, 25, for the last seven years, said he is not planning to get on one knee – but he added ‘you never know’.

Murray yesterday gave the performance of his life to defeat world Number One Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon men’s final 6-4 7-5 6-4.

He has been living with Kim since 2010 but she is forced to spend a lot of time apart from him while he travels the world competing in tournaments.

‘It has been getting close to eight years that we have been together,’ he added.

‘She has been with me since the second time I played Wimbledon, just after the first summer I played.

‘It has been good because her dad is a tennis coach and he still travels on the tour. She understands the sport well and is used to being away from her dad from a young age. She understands that sort of distant relationship, and yes it works well.’

As Murray carried out a series of interviews after his historic victory yesterday, there was growing speculation that he will receive a knighthood.

He ended 77 years of failure by becoming the first British man to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936.

Murray modestly questioned whether he would deserve such an honour for winning a tennis tournament.

‘I think it’s a nice thing to have or be offered,’ he said.

‘I think just because everyone’s waited for such a long time for this, that’s probably why it’ll be suggested, but I don’t know if it merits that. I don’t know.’

The British champion said it was only when he was taking a post-match drugs test 45 minutes that he realised he had made history.

A year ago he suffered the heartbreak of losing to Roger Federer in the final at Wimbledon, but bounced back in style.

Since then he has won Olympic Gold at Wimbledon before finally winning his first Grand Slam title at the US Open at Flushing Meadows in New York last September.guaranteed rental properties

But yesterday’s triumph in front of an expectant home crowd was his greatest of all.

Speaking on the BBC Radio 4 Today programme this morning, Andy Murray said that it took nearly an hour for his achievement to sink in.

‘It was a bit different to the US Open last year. I think about 45 minutes after the match I sat down and I was waiting to do the drug test and it just hit me,’ he said.

‘I got so so tired and everything started to sink in, It was the best day of my life.’

The win made Murray the first British man to take the Wimbledon title since Fred Perry in 1936.

A year ago Murray won the first set against Federer in the final but was defeated after losing the next three.

The Scottish player burst into tears after the defeat – his fourth in a Grand Slam final – but he said that the heartbreak helped him mature as a player.

‘The two or three weeks after Wimbledon last year were really important. Some will say the Wimbledon final was the turning point but I don’t really know exactly,’ he said.

‘The period after Wimbledon was really important. It was the hardest loss of my career and I was really emotional but I responded really well from it.

‘I don’t know why that was. I don’t know if I matured, if years of these emotions just came out but when I returned to the practice courts I felt really good about my game after Wimbledon.

‘It would normally take a couple of months for me to get over the Grand Slam losses.’

Murray finally sealed victory yesterday after dramatically squandering three Championship points from 40-0 and 5-4 up in the third set.

He told BBC Breakfast that it dawned on him that he was about to win the tournament at match point and his confidence slipped.

‘When I sat down at the end change, I actually felt OK. I wasn’t really thinking too much about it. I was just concentrating on the first point and where I was going to hit my first serve on the first point,’ he said.

‘But then when I went 40-0 up, I was thinking in my head ‘I’m about to win Wimbledon’, so very rarely will you lose your serve from 40-0 up.

‘And then, a few points later, facing break point, and some of the points in that last game were unbelievable, I can’t really remember exactly what happened in it.

‘But it was the toughest three, four-minute period of my career, some of the hardest points I’ve ever played, and just mentally really, really challenging.’

Andy Murray’s grandparents had ‘every faith’ in him as battled his way to a historic Wimbledon victory on Centre Court.

Roy and Shirley Erskine watched the match from Murray’s hometown of Dunblane, where they said support for their grandson had been ‘absolutely fantastic’.

Murray, 26, received bellowing support from fans in Centre Court and those watching back home as he sealed a thrilling victory over Serbian world number one Novak Djokovic.

Murray’s grandparents had the opportunity to speak to him on the phone last night minutes after he had won.

Mrs Erskine told BBC Radio Scotland’s Good Morning Scotland programme: ‘I congratulated him and told him that there was a tremendous party and that as usual the support in Dunblane was absolutely fantastic.

‘It was actually lovely last night to watch the highlights, tired as we were, because I don’t think we could remember that last game.’

Mrs Erskine said Murray had displayed competitveness and a determination to win from an early age, but she credited the player’s coach, Ivan Lendl, with helping him find the mental strength win the championship.

‘His mental toughness that has improved so much in the last 18 months since Ivan Lendl became his coach,’ she said. ‘There is no question that he has been so good for Andy.’

Speaking to ITV’s Daybreak, Mrs Erskine added: ‘I just had a feeling that he was in control of himself. He was playing well, we knew that, we knew that it was going to be a long battle. I suppose we just had every faith in him.’
