Wimbledon Day 14 Men's Singles Final

Roger Federer added another Wimbledon title equalling Pete Sampras with 7 titles.Murray again the Bridesmaid in his 4th Grandslam final.I for one thought Federer's grandslam winning was past him.Dont write of champions! Until 4 all in the second Murray was on top,but then Federer Magic kicked in,his all court game too good.Murray will rue the fact he hit a straightforward backhand return long off an ordinary second serve at breakpoint and 4-4.You miss your opportunity and it is gone as quick as it arrived.Federer wins the set and its 1-1 and then a rain delay.Federer until then had been fairly passive on his second serve return,but I am guessing his team reinforced how important it was to go after Andy's second serve.And he did! As I said yesterday in my post this would be a key factor,Feds average second serve speed was 98 MPH whilst Murray was 88MPH. Fed was in control his dropshots, his disguised slice approaches and the lobs over a stranded Andy was perfection. Murray was beaten by a better player and in some opinions the best that has ever played this game.I'm not a Murray fan but his emotional speech at the end showed his passion and the respect he has for his supporters.He tried his hardest and I have no doubt his committment and dedication.Well done Andy Murray you earned a lot of respect from the viewing public , dissapointed but Gallant in defeat.You did yourself and country Proud.

Roger is back ...he never went away but this week has put a little fear back into the Djoker and Rafa ,he has sent out a stern warning the "King" has regained the throne.
