Especially when there's his girlfriend sat there in front of her ugly fucking mug. I'd have one camera fixed permanently on her. The numerous shots of the Middleton sisters was appreciated though yesterday.
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.
It's not that he choked but when Federer stepped it up once the roof was closed at the start of the third set and was dominating Murray, you could see the frustration coming out of Murray. He was letting it get the better of him at times. You don't see that from Rafa or Federer. Novak does sometimes but he comes back at another level which Murray simply doesn't have in him unfortunately. It's why he can't make that next step.
