    Murray's serve not as big as the first 2 sets.

    Murray's 1st serve % has dropped by 8% since before the tiebreak in the 2nd. Federer has increased his by 8%

    Yeah maybe, but Every big fed win is awesome anyway.

    Rog not Sharp enough on return. Murray's serve has dropped a little but rog not yet reaping the fruits. Only in the tiebreak.

    Completely different circumstances. Murray hadn't won a major and facing Fed in finals was something he couldn't mentally deal with. Now that he's won a major it shouldn't be a factor anymore. Funny how your buddy abmk likes to use the "AFTER Fed won his first major" line making a massive deal out of it, but not the case with Murray now? LOL.

    No player has excuses tonight. If they lose it's simply from being outplayed.

    Murray expended sooooooo much more energy in those first two sets. Not looking fresh at all. Serve speed way down. What's his plan b?

    Bizarre. He can't think Murray will run out of gas. Murray's fitness (ignoring the fake leg and back grabs) hasn't been in question in about 4 years...

    Fed seems to lack that bit of extra to break through in Andy's service games, it's amazing to me how better Murray's FH is since he hooked up with Lendl.

    Murray's level has certainly dropped. And Federer has raised his a bit too. Match is a lot more even than the one way traffic before.

    That's silly, you can never get rid of nerves totally. Even Nadal has gotten nerves like at Wimbledon 2008, Djokovic had some at the last US open and the French in 2011 i bet.. probably in all slams players get nerves. Fed hit a great shot to get set point. Not much Murray could do.

    So in short, once again you have a bunch of excuses for Murray's slam losses to Fed but Fed fans aren't allowed to use any (such as Fed's age and mileage for example) for the match today, got it.

    P.S what my "buddy" Abmk likes to use is no business of mine.
