It took Murray's grand slam record to three trophies from 11 finals as he took full advantage of not having to face Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal for the first time.
But, like all true champions, it's defeats that motivate him to success.
The 29-year-old is the first Briton to secure multiple All England Club titles since Fred Perry in the 1930s and only the 12th man to win Wimbledon a few times. "I'm proud to have my hands on the trophy again". "To be able to play singles here at Wimbledon is brilliant; I've had worse weekends for sure!"
"You kind of get dragged in all sorts of directions afterwards and I want to spend this time with my family and my closest friends, the people I work with, that's who I want to be around, "Murray responded when asked on what he would do to celebrate his second title at Wimbledon". I feel like this was for myself more than anything, and my team as well.
Andy Murray declared he is playing the best tennis of his life after ending a three-year wait for his third Grand Slam in sensational style.
"It's very rare that you get through a slam without playing Novak, Roger or Rafa".
Meanwhile, there was more good news for British tennis after Heather Watson won the mixed doubles final with her partner Henri Kontinen, beating Robert Farah and Anna-Lena Groenefeld 7-6, 6-4. Failing's not bad, if you can learn from it.
Murray has been in superb form over the last three months, reaching the final of his last five events and winning three of them.
After his victory, Murray was overcome by emotion and sobbed on court, but said it felt different to when he won in 2013. I had a great night.
"I had a good feeling about this Wimbledon". But the reality is you still have to put the work in.
"It helps to have played a match against him on the grass", Murray said.
This was a totally dominant display of textbook tennis, defence and aggression fusing perfectly.
Against the cannon-ball serve Milos Raonic on Sunday, the Scot returned with breathtaking skill and picked him off with a dizzying array of dipping and passing shots to win 6-4 7-6 7-6 in two hours and 47 minutes.
Prime Minister David Cameron - who was booed by the fans - actors Bradley Cooper and Benedict Cumberbatch, and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon all lauded Murray from the Royal Box, while wife Kim and his mother Judy shouted their congratulations from his player's area.
'I would say it's looking unlikely, but even if I don't play I'm still probably going to go anyway just to be there with the team. "The last time it was just pure relief, and I didn't really enjoy the moment as much, whereas I'm going to make sure I enjoy this one more than the others".
"I don't see that being an issue this time".
