This loss was a function of the draw.

Sure Murray served awesome and played awesome.

but he was also the fresher opponent by far.

If Murray had just been drawn to the other side, Federer would likely be in the final, playing an opponent coming off of a 5-set deathmatch.

In addition... because DelPo donked, Murray didn't have to play a single quality opponent before the semi... he played a bunch of practice matches.

Federer had to fight a very tough Tsonga.... If Murray had had to put in a hard 4 or 5 sets against Juan, the match might have been different.

Trust me.. this loss was every bit as much on the blame of the draw as it was on Murray's stellar play.
