Wimbledon Final 2012: Federer def. Murray 4-6 7-5 6-3 6-4
Congratulations to Federer on equalling Sampras' record of 7 titles. He produced some brilliant tennis in the 4th set, with plenty of nice all-court play and a great backhand pass to break serve. Nobody he can deny he deserved this title after his performances in the semis against Djokovic and in the final today.
But this was a close match most of the way, hinging on Murray dropping serve from 30-0 at the end of the second set, and that game with 10+ deuces in the 3rd.
Murray deserves a lot of praise, hopefully people will stop calling him a pusher after this effort. Undeniably, without a shadow of a doubt, he is the greatest player in history not to win a major, but hopefully that will change some time in the next couple of years.
Wimbledon F: R. Federer beats A. Murray 4-6 7-5 6-3 6-4
Fed started nervy but then played great when he needed to from the second set on, including two outstanding points to win the second set. After the rain delay and the closing of the roof there was no doubt who the winner would be. Murray played very well except perhaps for his serve which let him down at crucial stages.
Fed gets 17th slam, 7th Wimbly and number 1 ranking to break Sampras record.

GS nr. 17 ! Back at nr. 1 ! Will break Sampras' record of weeks at nr.1 !
A bit sad for Andy, wouldn't have minded him winning. But I think his time will come. He played a much better match today than in the previous finals. Gotta feel for my pal Clydey and other sane Murray fans
