Re: Wimbledon final: Murray vs Federer

CONGRATULATIONS ROGER!! Andy its not your time yet you need to wait until Roger retires he is in another class

Murray played a great game but how do you play against the greatest player of all time when he is in form.

It is bloody annoying to finally have someone who is British and good at tennis be so unbelievably unlikeable. Long may he continue losing.

Last night, I was talking to a friend (we didn't watch the match) after reading the BBC report, where it mentioned he cried at the end... my first comment: "He's going to be really popular as the plucky loser now because he cried [compared to previously when no one liked him because he was too cold]."

This morning:
Quote:
When the tears came, however, and the post-match words choked in his throat with half the country watching or listening at home, the young man was at last visible behind the sportsman's tough exterior.

Here he was, revealed in a way few expected: emotional, apologetic, engaging and open for all to see.

<snip>

The difference this time was the reaction from the crowd inside Centre Court - sustained applause, collectively placing an empathetic arm around the shoulder - and from those watching at home who had previously never thawed to the Scot's angular charms.

"I never thought the old boy had it in him," as one chastened spectator said wonderingly courtside.

He let his ego burst out in a show of rude arrogance before he had the ability to back it up. I just remember him 3 or 4 years ago scarfing down a plateful of sushi during a press conference and answering questions monosyllabically through mouthfuls.

The likes of Federer or Nadal are humble and polite despite having been at the top of their game for years.

Yes, I wish him good luck ...I was really sorry he lost the gold medal and Murray won...:
I think he was too tired. Watched an interview with him last night and when asked if he'd throw a party for the silver medal he said something along the line "I'm not 20 anymore, now I'll try to relax". Eh, lovely chap.
