For me, as much as I want to see Roger win gold, I wouldn't mind seeing Andy get it either. But I can't stand to watch Roger playing this badly. It's incredibly frustrating!

Naaaah, Fed has this. Murray went from not winning a set in finals, to winning one at Wimby 2012 and he'll win two today. Then Rogi will come back and win it all in 5.


I don't think Roger is going to come back from this but at least I hope he manages to put up a little more resistance in the next set(s).
This is just a good old fashioned ass kicking by Murray.

I really wanted Fed to win a Singles Gold and fill the only gap left on his resume, but if Murray can hold on, it will be awesome to see him win something of Note. It's not a Major, but it's probably the next best thing, especially in front of a home crowd.


No roof to save Indoorerer this time.

But seriously, what the hell is Fed doing? I don't mind Murray winning - he deserves some success in top events - but at least put up a fight.

Roger doesn't even have the serve that saved him against delPo, in addition to lacking the consistency off the ground and return.

Come on Roger! Get it together!!


The **** are you watching?

Murray is playing the greatest match in the history of tennis. Everything he hits is going in.
Over dramatic much?

Murray playing great and Fed playing mediocre, DOES NOT equal Murray playing the "greatest match in the history of tennis". Get a grip, dude :)


Federer obviously didn't give a **** about the 1st 2 sets. Much more satisfying for him to watch Murray choke a lead. When he wants to wake up, Murray doesn't stand a chance of winning a point, let alone a set.

If God mode stays on, it's soon over. If not, I don't think Andy can cope with coming off of it. Then Rogi in 5.

6-1 6-3 6-0

Looks like it's going to 5 sets.
In the Roland Garros 2008 final, Nadal went on a similar streak, winning the first two sets 6-1 6-3. He then became the only player in the 21st century to bagel Federer, in the third set. It wouldn't surprise me if Murray won 6-2 6-1 6-0, actually. And it produces an even nicer pattern.
