Nice location,Zagor. :lol:
Well, it's sort of a tribute to our dear friend Yoda :).

And of course the only logical explanation as to how can a 31 year old, brokeback, mental midget with no BH win the most prestigious tournament in tennis and reach #1.

That sitter backhand that Andy missed at 4-4 30-40 breakpoint in the 2nd was the biggest miss. Had he nailed that for a winner he would have been serving for a 2 sets lead. Kind of reminded me of Roddick's missed volley in '09.
There is always a counter point. Federer had a high mid-court backhand in the 1st set at 4-4 in Murrays service game. Fed hit a weak drop shot and Murray ran in and whizzed it right at Fed's head for a winner. This shifted momentum and won the 1st set for Murray. If Fed hits any decent shot off Murray's weak ball, Fed likely wins 1st set.

We all view the losers game as a few key strokes but Fed blew several relatively easy break points in the 1st set. Fed could have just as easily been up 2 set to 0 as down 2-0 if you shifted maybe 1 point in the match.

It was very close. They both played unbelievable tennis.

Did not like that app at all. While it's a bit late, I also thought the website was absolutely terrible. No idea why the home page was left blank like that.

Yeah the app was horrible, so was the French. AO and USO 2011 did a great job having a menu page and easy to read scoreboards and such.

Congratulations Roger!!!! I'm glad Andy M was able to win a set and give him a good match. I think all of Great Britian (English, Scots, Welsh, Irish) should be proud of Andy and that Marray guy.

Was an AMAZING Match by both guys. Federer played as good as he did in 2006 in the Tennis Masters cup against Blake. I'm going to be replaying this match on my dvr a LOT

We are. He did his best and you can't ask more. If it was not to be, it was not to be. I think he won over many doubters in this country today and we should hear no more of this silly 'Murray is a Scot, so he's not really one of us' nonsense I've been coming up against in various threads lately. At least I HOPE we won't be hearing anymore such talk!

So.....I guess I am not crazy.....thank god

Actually, Great Britain has nothing to do with Irish. It's the UK that does. )

Proud of Andy's efforts today. Gave Rog a tough outing, but The Fed was just zoned in after the roof closed.
