This one is gonna end 11-9 in the 5th....Murray wins on a bad call.

Wow. I have never seen Murray hit his forehand that hard so many times in a single point. And it was a set point against him at that. Super impressed. But Come on FEDERER!! Bring your A game now for the whole set!!

Tragic second set loss for Murray.  He clearly outplayed Federer, but once at 4/4 break point, and at 5/6 30/15 made two critical unforced errors (one forehand, one backhand).

This is where we will see if Murray has advanced beyond his past failures in the semis and finals.  If he can recover from this set and still win, he truly belongs to big time.

Waiting for Fed to wake up...
He looks almost desinterested...
The only shot he has been hitting really well are the overheads..
Everything else is so-so, not enough to beat Murray the way he is playing.

I'm not seeing what you're watching at all. The guy has been attacking all day.

Rain for now. Murray needs to regroup as he looks a little lost out there.

Aside...

The Olympics are going to suck for us T&F fans. Why'd they give London the Olympics when *this* is the only 2 week period it doesn't rain???

Well then... how long do we wait?

Federer's been playing pretty well and he's been attacking. The biggest difference in the Semi was that his serve was very effective, especially his serve out wide on the deuce court. Today he hasn't had any free points on serve. Closing the roof would really help him in that department.

But this break will help Andy, the momentum was slowly going toward Federer and now it's a fresh best of 3 match.

It definitely could so long as they keep the roof open. Otherwise, the rain benefits Federer.

The linesmen were paid by Fed, to make it a closer match...
Fed just didn't want to rout the homeboy in front of his crowd.... :)

he is not going away........

A relief after Fed somewhat win the second set after down 4 breakdown . And he bravely did 2 drop shot in a row to clinch the second set.

Now it dead even. Who start better in third set will had huge advantage. Hoping Fed didnot feel pressure and play with less UE than the first set (15 UE)

Fed was taken to 5 sets in the third round under the roof IIRC.
