They have met on Grass once being the 2012 Wimbledon final with Roger Winning Obviously.

2012 Wimbledon Final :Federer def Murray 4-6,7-5,6-3,6-4


I think it would be similiar with Federer winning in 4 again.

Federer work will be much easier with the Roof on....I doubt it though....the rain has been kind to Wimbledon Olympics.

Lol good thread.

If Federer recovers - I'm taking him in 2, if not, Murray could take this in 2.

Edit: no, wait, the finals best-of-5. In this case I'd take a replay of the Wimbledon final.

Murray has the home court advantage again. Another mountain to climb for Federer

Both of the players I wanted to see in the final made it, so I'm pretty happy.

I feel selfish for wanting Federer to win gold and take it from Andy, as I'm certain Andy must be sick of having to deal with Roger everytime he gets to a final of a huge tournament. I would be happy with either result. I'd be happier if Federer won gold but not really that disappointed if Murray were to win instead. He deserves it and it would be huge for him.

I pick Federer in four, though am very prepared to be proven wrong.

perhaps, i am a biased federer worshiper, something tells me Federer is going to be amped up for this match. I think Federer in straight sets, like 7-5, 6-4, 6-3. Look at Federer against Benneateau. The Frenchmen played him super tough at Wimbledon, and then Federer put a beatdown on him at the Olympics. I could see something similiar happening in the final. Murray played so well for the first two sets of Wimbledon, and it was only 1 set all. Federer didn't play that well then or today. He can only get better.

He has to cut down his UFEs. too many free points against Del Potro.

As a neutral party here I want it to be good but from what I've seen so far, big finals and Muzza don't mix very well. Hopefully he can change history. If he puts up half the fight DelPo did I'll be satisfied.

DelPo has a massive monster forehand, Muzza has..... ????

Murray fares well in the poll! :shock:
With Murray having a home court advantage and the wind at his sails, and Federer coming down from an emotionally and perhaps physically draining contest, this is obviously Murray's best chance of besting Federer at an event bigger than the Masters 1000. Still, I think it will be close.

Cmon Murrah.

I am a huge Fed fan, but I want you to get a little glory too. We need a new generation also.

Just stay the hell away from majors until the old man is done :)
