Murray in the past cockily boasted that he was going to beat Fed at a WTF match and he did making it 4 match wins on the trot. I don't think Roger ever forgets these things and there's always a bit of satisfaction for him whenever he can school Murray in another GS final and then make a few throwaway condescending comments about him.
All done in the best possible taste of course!
I don't blame Fed really for a not-so-good speech (being his fan and all). I mean winning something such as Wimbledon, normal people would be speechless. It's really hard to give an ideal after-speech after winning a slam.
Anyways, I've noticed how dangerous Andy's forehand is at times. And his net approaches were vintage in the final.
