Federer never played well because he wasn't allowed to play well. Murray didn't give him room to breathe. His shots were deep, on point, clean, his serve was great, as was his second serve and he was hitting a load of winners. Federer wasn't allowed to get into any kind of rhythm, wasn't allowed to get any kind of feel for his shots and that was due to Murray. There's no doubt Federer wasnt playing his best tennis but we should credit a lot of that to Murray.
Pretty much yeah. But if Federer played better, Murray would probably not have won in straight sets and the match would have been closer. Federer was way below par.
I don't remember anyone saying Federer was playing well. They were just saying along the lines of Murray is only winning because Federer was playing below par and Federer is giving it to Murray which isn't true and incredibly harsh on Murray. He proved he could beat the best when he beat Murray and did it again today. You don't beat Federer 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 in a major Grass Court Final without playing some great Tennis.
I don't think anyone said Murray wasn't immense.
First of all this tournament he's proved he can win a five set final, and second he's proved that he can beat the world number one and two in one tournament. He's got momentum on his side, and he should feel very good coming into the US Open this year. His strongest slam, just won the Olympic final against the world number one. He's got a big shot there. So, so happy for him, it just feels like he's just overcame this huge obstacle and now he should be able to play to the standard we know he can.
Wait, what? I think it is clear that Austrailian Open is his strongest slam.
He wants a slam more.
Even if he does win a slam he will still act like that.
Ok, I think Murray overachieved in this tournament. He was playing so amazing. He has never been that good. I think he has been playing even better than his best. . I do not think he will play like that in US Open.
Also I find it quite ridiculous that Murray is considered the favourite by some of you to win the US Open over Nadal, Djokovic and Federer. Yeah he won the gold medal but he never won a slam. NEVER
. I am not not saying that he does not have a chance. He has a big chance but Federer, Nadal and Djokovic are still more likely to win the US Open than Murray. Don't forget that Nadal is coming back and we all know how Murray fares against him.
With that being said, I predicted before the Olympics that Murray would win the US Open and I still stand by that. I think he will face Del Potro in the final.
