Fantastic performance from both men, and I actually warmed a little more to Murray from that speech - just fuck his mother off the TV Screen and his matches will be bearable
It wasn't that he was mentally fragile. Murray was playing at the top of his game and hanging with Federer in the first two sets. Unforyunately for Murray, Federer had another gear within himself and once he went into that gear Murray was at a big disadvantage.

It's not about being mentally fragile or choking. It's just about not being as good. Case in point is that he wasn't dropping games by errors. It was immense shots from Federer, especially when he broke him to take the second (or third?) set.
