I'm a Fed girl through and through and I never thought he would win another slam (even though I said that I did). And to grab #1 again. He's an amazing tennis player, seems to be a good person. He's great for tennis.Congratulations to the Fed. He's back. Never thought he'd win another major, let alone regain the #1 ranking.
He proved all us doubters wrong.
stroke wise ??? not that much. IMO, his BH is slightly weaker now, but serve is more reliable ( first serve % ) .... but mentally he has improved quite a bit ....The H2H is now 8-8 but 3-0 for Federer in slam finals. Clear advantage for Federer. I hope we can now stop hearing how Murray is a bad matchup for Federer. I never felt that way the way I did about Nadal and to a lesser extent Djokovic. The overall H2H was always a slight mirage IMO, and I say that as a neutral in this case who isnt a fan of either player.
I do feel bad for Murray though. I wonder if he will ever win a slam. Here he had to play only one of the big 3 and still couldnt pull it off. Usually he will have to beat two of them which seems almost impossible for him. If anything all 3 matchups are turning more heavily against him as time goes on. Federer is the only one significantly older, and new threats are sure to emerge in a few years time. Also has he improved any as a player since 2009 now?
A cocky speech my Federer but with his record you can't blame him :/ I was rooting for Federer but now I will be supporting Andy until we wins one....I think he will win one of them in the coming years, he is only 25.Federer just loving the crushed dreams of the Andys
Feel the same way. I keep telling myself I'll root for Murray to win a slam, but he keeps meeting Fed in finals. As sweet as this one is it is still a little bittersweet.Aww this is really sad, f*ck man.. Murray can win as much majors as he likes from now on man, he can win all of them for all I care. I just wanted Fed to win one more slam before retiring, I'm happy now.
I'm ok about it, surprisingly. I still think this was a good sign from Murray, finally winning a set and having Federer on the ropes in most of the second set.You were 50/50 on who you wanted to win, how do you feel about everything?
With Nadal/Djokovic super-motivated after Wimbledon, exits, there is VERY LITTLE chance of that happening.Feel so bad for Andy though, seriously hope he wins USO now.
I gotta admit, I didn't think he had another Wimbledon in him after his performances there in 2010 and 2011. I did think he would beat Murray in the final though before the match.but keep in mind that fed cannot win wimbledon since he failed to reach the SF in his last 2 attempts. foolproof logic aint it?
and what did that proof? nothing. he was unlucky to run into zoning Tberd and tsonga. that doesnt mean jack in the long run. look what happens to nadal when a nobody zones against him. same thing that shouldve happened against petzschner already.I gotta admit, I didn't think he had another Wimbledon in him after his performances there in 2010 and 2011.
