Yeah - Federer is such a massive pita for opponents, the tiebreaks he just keeps winning again and again. Greatest tiebreaker of all time (and Murray has become bloody good at them also the last few years).

Some serious choking on Murray's behalf.

He had no legs at the end, anyone who says he hasn't declined should watch this match.

Good for Murray to finally break his Fed duck at Slams. Nole is favorite in the final I think.
agree bro. it's like the olympics final. federer showing his age but still able to show some bite. matches like this makes me thankful i am one of his fans.

Eurosport player crashed for me on match point!

Anyway, congrats to Murray for beating Fed in a slam. Although I expect he already felt like he had done, in best of 5 sets in London.

Murray is just a superior player atm, anyone neutral can see that. Stats show that Fed was lucky to get this to 5th.

Roger just did not have a serve and played very passively today and still it took Murray 5 sets to win , he is gonna be crushed for the final

Roger just ran out of gas in the end once again

very proud of you roger , you are a legend.

but today andy murray deserved the victory , but roger had many balls , he served like shit all match and murray served like god and roger was capable to pushed to the limits to andy and go to the 5ºset.

but the reality is that roger in this slow or medium harcourts needs to serve nearly the perfection for defeat nadal , nole or murray , because he is not capable to be so regular from the baseline like them and not has they physicall condition.

the problem with the return of murray against fed`s second serve , is that roger hasn`t the footwork and reflexes of his peak years , and he hit the ball without timing

I watched only the end of the 4th and the 5th. I must say Murray was pretty clutch mentally. I didn't expect him to stay focused after he lost the 4th. Federer was physically done in the deciding set though.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Pretty expected, Andy should have won in 4 and the better player throughout, but Rog was incredibly solid and you can't say enough about how much of a fighter the GOAT is. His fans should be proud of the effort today.

Too defensive are we? i'll be more than happy to play tennis with you in real life. let me know
