A peak audience of 17.3 million watched Andy Murray win Wimbledon 2013

A peak audience of 17.3 million watched Andy Murray become the first man in 77 years to claim the top prize at Wimbledon.

The build up to the match began at 12.50pm on BBC One and went through to the scheduled 6pm close. The match itself lasted just over 3 hours; 2.10pm-5.30pm.

6.9 million were watching BBC One at 2pm, 10m by 2.50pm, 12m at 3.50pm, 13m at 4.20pm, 14m at 4.40pm, 15m at 5.05pm, 16m at 5.15pm and 17m at 5.25pm, according to @TVRatingsUK

Yesterday’s final peaked higher than all Olympic sporting events last year, except for the 100 meters final, which drew 20 million viewers.

The BBC said the 17.3 million figure was up on last year’s final, which was watched by a peak of 17 million when Murray lost to Roger Federer.
