The likes of Calvin Harris, Mollie King and Professor Green have also hailed the tennis star's victory.

The Wanted's Max George and One Direction star Niall Horan have led the praise for Scottish tennis star Andy Murray after his historic Grand Slam victory in New York City this morning (11th September).
