Federer played pretty bad the first 3 games, allowing Murray to go up a break (the 1st game of the match was a break). He then sort of settled down a bit but Murray was still dominating till the score got to 2-4. The 7th game was on Federer's serve and this is where the match started to turn around. Federer got some good shots in, drew some confidence, and had a great service game. He then broke Murray's serve to get back on serve at 4-4. It was a really tight battle then for the first set, with both players playing well, but Federer won 7-5 in the tiebreaker. The second set was served to Federer on a silver platter by a shanking Murray.
