It is hoped Cornwall's up and coming tennis talent will get a boost from Andy Murray's Wimbledon final.

He is the first Brit to get there in 74 years.

17 million watched on television, as he took on Roger Federer.

Even though he lost, Launceston coach James Brobin reckons it will fire up some dreams:

"Desire is everything. You've got to want it at the end of the day. Yes, we are probably at a disadvantage being slightly further away in Cornwall from certain parts of the country than other counties but. at the end of the day if you want it badly enough you'll still go out and do it"

"It all comes down to desire and let's just hope that Wimbledon will encourage more and more youngsters as time goes on and more people who'll want to emulate what Andy Murray has done. Perhaps they'll be able to go one step further"
