You Are Welcome

You've said your goodbyes,
You are welcome.
You've sailed through strong tides,
Your are welcome.
The demand to get here must have been high,
But you have paid the price,
So you are welcome.
Welcome to a new beginning,
A journey to a new world.
A world of opportunities,
A place where dreams come true.
You are about to make history,
And start a new chapter of your life.
You will learn about many things,
And pay your rents without your pa-rents.
Here, you will make new friends,
And will have to pass many tests.
The ride won't be easy,
But you are welcome to this new beginning,
You are welcome to ASTON UNIVERSITY.

The Wait Is Over For Andy Murray and Great Britain

Andy Murray lifting his trophy.
History was made today as Andy Murray was crowned the US Open Men's Champion in New York.
It's been a long wait for the Scot, as he had to wait till the fifth time to win his first grand slam. The 2012 Men's US open final featured a strong Djokovic who is currently world number two. It was not going to be an easy ride for Murray as he had to wait till the 5th set to be crowned the Champion.

The Showdown
2012 has been a very good year for Andy, as he made the Wimbledon final, won an Olympic gold medal for the men's single and now the US Open. 
Murray's mum, Judy Murray, watched as her son cruised to victory and become the first Brit to win the US open after about 8 decades.

The second to the longest tennis match of the US Open Era (just 1 minute short of the longest) will go down in history as a showdown of a brilliant tennis match between two brilliant players of this generation. The match results are 6-2, 7-5, 2-6, 3-6 and 6-2. Andy Murray took home his trophy and a prize of $1.9million.
