He only narrowly won the 2nd set. The closure of the roof changed conditions completely and definitely favoured Federer. Had Federer lost that match you would no doubt have used the closure of the roof as an excuse just as you seem to think the wind blew more strongly on Djokovic's side of the court than it did on Murray's at the USO!

Well, he went on to win the USO but, oh I forgot, that one was down to the wind (because we all know that Murray is the only player on the tour that isn't affected by the wiind). I guess if it weren't for hurricanes and tired opponents, he would never win anything, would he?
