Very shaky start (after he mugged a break) from Fedclown but I'm glad he got it done in 2

Game over. Forever.

Sloppy to give the break away in the first but overall Solid in cold and rough conditions.

Good job, Roger. Another hard-thought victory on the way to greatest tennis title of all times which Olympic singles gold.

I hope his FH remains positive and strong, even if he makes a mistake here or there. The British weather wants an indoor final and Roger likes it.

Rain delay at 5-5 really helped Fed, overall shaky groundstrokes still most importantly got through in 2.
