Feel really sad for Andy. He played a really good two sets, but once the roof came on, Federer just knocked it out the park. He was just too good in the last two sets, Murray still had his chances but couldn't stop the momentum Federer had from winning the second set. Really happy to see Federer as world number one again, and him breaking a lot of records through this Wimbledon, he deserves the limelight again and he's playing incredibly well.
Murray shouldn't feel too bad. He got a lot closer to that slam title this time around. He picked up the first set and honestly was playing better than Federer in the second, he should have won that. He's got chances, and I think he can do it. Was very sad to see him so upset in his speech, although lovely to see how much he cares about what he's doing. As Federer said, he will win one at some point, I think it's just a matter of when. Fed will decline (eventually) and Murray will only get better in the next two or three years.
Great tournament though and a great final with some fantastic tennis quality. Congrads to Roger!
