What do you guys think? I think the edge is with Murray after Federer's marathon SF.. HE is almost 6 years older, so if the match goes long, which I think it will, it will favor the younger player. BTW, I am a Federer fan!

Feds playing like he did against Delpo but the good thing is, his serve was GODLY good that day so he's still the favorite for me. :)

Murray hasn't turned up, or the one against Djokovic that is.

Federer is lacking the crispness he developed in the latter sets of the Wimbledon final. I haven't really seen it at The Olympics so I'm a bit worried. One of these men is going to rise to the occasion and run away with it, me thinks.

Me agrees ans also thinks it's gonna be real close this time
But I see fed winning this
 
Murray coming up with some big forehands to go up 30-0 on federer's serve.. I always thought that when Murray can start dictating with his FH, he will come closer to winning a slam. He has started to really hit is FH hard and this is helping him in matches against elite players

Is this best of 5? It be interesting if Murray can maintain it as well.
 
Am I wrong for not getting excited by this match and the whole 'tennis at the Olympics' thing at all? I watch these guys all year round, I watch the Olympics to watch cool **** like archery and water polo

Yikes. Federer needs to step it up.
Fed steps it up when his back against the wall....that's what it makes things impossible to predict.

Even when he is in front, he is prone to getting tight/losing focus, so i'd be shocked if this ended up being a 3-setter, no matter who wins the first set :shock:

the final is five sets.

Maybe this is all Fed's master plan. Give him opportunities to blow to break him mentally.

Fed is just terrible. looking very grim at the moment.
Fed has looked A LOT more terrible than this, and still ends up winning in the end...

Both guys look tight so far....no real sense of any guy having a meaningful edge over the other yet, IMO...
 
Murray takes some tips from Shankerror and puts a FH wide.. Federer attempts another great FH DTL, just missing.. Federer going for too much now..
