From "PrinceMoron" of TW forum:

'As the court was being prepared around him for the presentation ceremony, Murray could be seen saying, "I don't have it, I don't have it."

The "it" that he was referring to was his watch. Not a present from a loved one with much sentimental value, but a $2,000 (£1,250) designer watch, provided courtesy of his sponsor Rado.

The watch is actually worth much more to Murray, as part of a multi-million dollar deal with the Swiss watch maker, so it was probably to the relief of both player and sponsor that he found it in time to receive his silverware.'

Murray is becoming the consummate pro. Worked very hard to get where he is, now the spoils of war go the the winner.

Accounts for his personal company show he made £6.4m in sponsorship, merchandising and appearance fees over the preceding 12 months. As well as Rado, whose watch the 25-year-old hurriedly strapped on before lifting the trophy, Murray is sponsored by Adidas, tennis equipment manufacturer Head, car-maker Jaguar, and RBS.
