Tennis Grand Stand:
(July 7, 2013)History has been made, and the winners of this year’s Wimbledon Championships attended the prestigious Champions Ball at the Intercontinental Park Lane Hotel in London on Sunday evening.
The women’s and men’s singles winners, Marion Bartoli and Andy Murray, pose together
The stunning surprise of the evening was the elegantly beautiful women’s singles winner, Marion Bartoli. Earlier in the day, she promised to don ”extremely high heels” and “a short green dress” to the Ball and we weren’t disappointed. She showed up in skyhigh 6 inch Christian Louboutin Daf Booty suede platform boots (which go for a fierce $1,395), and the French women looked every bit the part of a confident and happy champion.
The men’s singles winner and already a member of the All England Club, Andy Murray looked charming in a black tuxedo and radiant smile. He brought along his mum and dad, Judy and Will, girlfriend Kim Sears, as well as his good friend Dani Vallverdu and coach Ivan Lendl.
BEST OF MAXIM
We can imagine that the minutes immediately following a win in the Wimbledon final are something of a haze. Your mind is probably not all there.

BBC's John Inverdale is catching a lot of heat for comments he made about the physical appearance of Wimbledon winner Marion Bartoli.
This one is forever. For Andy Murray. For Britain. It took forever.
It lasts forever.

For those of you keeping score at home, Andy Murray won the Wimbledon 2013. It was the first time a Brit won the tournament since 1936.
