Who was closer to beating Roger in Wimbledon - Murray or Djokovic?

Djokovic:
Lost in 4 sets. Won a routine 2nd set, and was keeping up with Federer until the last game of the third. He was getting into Fed's service games more often than Murray, but he didn't come really close to winning other sets.

Murray:
Lost in 4 sets. Won first set breaking twice and getting broken once. Didn't get into that much of Roger's service games, but was very close to taking the second set as well.

Djokovic never was in leading position and Murray was as close to 2-0 as possible. Hm... Really tough one.

Gasquet is next №1

Djoker. Murray's loss was NID, no matter the score.

Re: Who was closer to beating Roger in Wimbledon - Murray or Djokovic?

Murray was closer. I'm still amazed how Roger took that 2nd set, the last 2 points were just sublime stuff.

Djoker folded like a cheap tent after he got broken to lose that 3rd set. He was never in the match at all in sets 1 and 4, he's lucky he didn't get breadsticked in the 4th set.

Djokovic, Federer, Tsonga, Del Potro, Wawrinka, Thiem, Nishikori, Raonic

Congrats Djokovic on winning 2016 French Open and becoming the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win 4 consecutive majors!

Murray with a clear margin, Federer was on the ropes in that 2nd set. Murray was clearly in control of the play, was in many of Fed's service games and had a good look to a passing shot at BP, up until 5-5.

Definitely Murray. Those last two points in the 2nd set literally saved federer.

Re: Who was closer to beating Roger in Wimbledon - Murray or Djokovic?

Murray was outplaying Federer completely for 2 sets, this poll just seems to have been made to make the point Murray>Djokovic on grass, which everyone already knows at the moment.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Benneteau and Del Potro

Seriously, it was Murray, he came very, very close to a 2-0 up lead. Had he made that forehand when he had break point, he'd probably the Wimbledon champion right now. Fine margins.
