Congrats Murray! It is great to see him win a slam. 76 years wait is over. Finally a brit won a slam. He is no.3 now. I am also glad that the Joker didn't win. Can see Murray winning few more slams now tbh. But he will never win the Roland Garros. Going to watch the highlights now.
What is awesome is that even though Federer got eliminated earlier than Djokovic, the gap between them is extended. Federer was leading Djokovic by 895 points. Now Fed is leading him by 1335 points. Lol
I hope Federer recovers from his loss against Berdych and does great in the next few tournament, especially the Barclays ATP World Tour. Federer could become the first player to hold the NO.1 raking for 300 weeks.
It is also awesome that 4 different players won a slam this year, when was last time that happened?

Forgot how to beat top players, ah Djokovic?
Btw Berdych overtook Tsonga in the rankings.
Combination of djokovic time wastin/ball bouncing with Murray's slow counter punching style of play.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Told y'all Murray and Serena would win

being in Murray's box was clearly the difference for Murray. I think Fergie was actually struggling to get a ticket which is why he was in there.

Tremendous final. Odd feeling but even at 2-2 I always felt confident that Murray would win. Best player in the world right now. Be interesting to see how he fares against Rafa now when he returns but I don't think Rafa will be on the same level after this injury unless he changes the way he plays.

at some of the rallies.

Hopefully he goes on from here and really cements himself at the level of Nadal and Djokovic because he's more than good enough too. No reason why he shouldn't be winning at least one slam a year for the next few years barring injuries.

Novak's girlfriend is just waaaaaaaaaaay too cute.

Murray having to ask his girlfriend where he packed his watch and forgetting to take the trophy out of the Sky Sports studio. So British

Yeah, I was expecting the worst when he fell away in the 3rd and beginning of the 4th. But somewhere in the middle of the 4th set he found his rhythm again and started contesting the rallies and forcing Djokovic to play out of his skin to win the big points. From that moment on whilst I still feared Djokovic would just have a little too much composure and experience on the big points, Murray definitely had a chance and the minute he broke after dropping serve and threatening to recreate the 2nd set Djokovic comeback I sensed it was about to happen.

Immensely proud of the lad, definitely deserved it and hopefully it can be the beginning of a few more with his mental belief now enhanced by being able to win the big one over 5 sets. Whilst the overall quality of tennis wasn't their best, some of the rallies from the 4th set in particular onwards were just incredibly tense and dramatic, and we can't forget the monster 54 shot rally.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Shame that rally ended on a Murray unforced error

Defensive work of both men is just out of this world. Not surprising the match wasn't sprinkled with winners when they defend the baselines like that. Against anyone else they probably would have had double the amount of winners they had in that match.

Looks like it was 2003 with Andre Agassi, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Roger Federer and Andy Roddick

Here's hoping 2013 is a great year for Andy. Totally deserved the win last night, after he seems to have finally got that monkey off his back. Wimbledon 2013 Champion, I hope.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

That rally where Murray had Djokovic running left to right repeatedly and finally ending with Djokovic falling over... That was immense. When the rallies got going, they were brilliant.
