no, you are the one being pathetic here, trying to pretend to be "neutral" ..

federer first let raonic in that game by DF twice ..it was only after that that raonic raised his level.

fed was the better player in the set until then ..
Who won the first set? I'm a huge Federer fan but I told you guys yesterday that Raonic should not be underestimated.

I don't understand these FH misses by Fed. Seems like the ball doesn't have much on it, not so fast, he's there in time, yet he puts it in the net, why?
He's doubting himself. Doubting every aspect of his game right now. I just hope the fall didn't hurt him.

Such a great opportunity to win another slam gone down the drain. Seems like he got so comfortable up 2-1 and raonic got confident with each game

Nerves will gift Murray a couple of breaks in the first set and I don't think there's any doubt from that point. If Chokerer can go virtual match points up on Raonic, Murray will roll over his serves like no tomorrow.

Also the Time On court stat is firmly in Andy's favour
I think Murray will win the title but I think Raonic should have his chances. He's played Murray close.

I cannot believe this match. I cannot believe.
Classic Federer choke. He reminds us that he isn't actually mentally tough.

Also how fitting that having lucked out on second serves @ MP against Cilic, he burns himself while in a winning position in this match.

I think his leg(quad muscle) was cramping. Looks like the cramp is now gone though. Also, he must be so tired.

I've repeated this ad nauseum. He is extremely unlucky in that he didn't have the draw open up when he was fit the last two years and when it finally did this year, he is in no physical shape to capitalize.
he's not some mug trying to win his first major. Djokovic was far from unbeatable, but Federer shied away and played nervously. He could have had better luck with the draw but it it mostly his fault he doesn't have another major.

Luck finally smiled on Andy Murray since he has been giving himself chances getting to the final. No Djoko to stop him, even Fed stopping him in the final would be doubtful at best.

Incredible match from Raonic. I have clear that Federer wasted his chances in the 4th set, but Milos did not fold and resisted like a man. Props to him even if at the end is not enough for the win
Yep, props to Milos for remaining steady. Probably the only thing he can take from this game. Keeping his cool.
