Monday was a good day for artist and English literature graduate Kim Sears, 24, the longtime girlfriend of Andy Murray, 25, after she watched her boyfriend of seven years beat out defending champion Novak Djokovic, 25, in the five-set final in Forest Hills to become the new U.S. Open champion.

Murray, who also nabbed the gold medal in the men's singles event in the 2012 London Olympics, beating Roger Federer, 31, was the first British man in 79 years to win a Grand Slam singles tournament, when Fred Perry walked away with the honor.

Sears, the British daughter of a tennis coach herself, has loyally attended all major tournaments in which Murray has competed since he kicked off his professional career in 2006, always exuding an upbeat and positive attitude, reports the U.K.'s Daily Mail.

After the victory, Murray, Sears and a few friends visited the upscale Hakkasan restaurant in Manhattan's Theatre District, where they ate and drank the night away after the restaurant would have normally been closed, reports the New York Post.

So are there wedding bells in Murray and Sears' future? "I have no plans to get married right now," Murray recently said, according to the Mail. "I am still fairly young. But we'll see." As for his take on the beautiful Sears, Murray admires her own professional ambition. "She wants to have her own career, not just pose in Hello! magazine," he said.
