Yep. That’s that. A record breaking Wimbledon is over and Roger Federer is back as the World Number One, aged 30. His semi final clash was a big surprise not because he won but because it was in a pretty average, at times boring as shit, match to watch. Novak just didnt show up after that 5-4 game in the third. And Federer pounced, obviously. Andy Murray’s opponent was J.W.T. aka The Zonks. Jo Willy lived up to his official nickname and entertained the hell out of people, diving left right as if he was on a beach, but Murray prevailed and the tears, already began to flow. Emotion Pressure Button: ON.
FEDERER (No.3) def. MURRAY (No.4) – 4-6 7-5 6-3 6-4
But. The beginning of the final was a big surprise, so much so that my suspicious mind wondered if there was a deal struck for Murray to get his first slam because the RF was all over the place, and not there mentally, for ,like, the first set and a half. Andy was giving it his all but after the roof closed, Roger was in the zone and all Murray could do was moan and groan and be in physical pain. It was, at times, tragic and at times very weird. Murray producing some brilliance here and there, while Roger drop volleying and dropping slices of genius whenever he felt like it.
Say what you want about Roger and his arrogance or faggyness, the guy is a legend and deserves to beat Sampras’ record of the Longest Number One holder and he deserves the 7th Wimbledon. Murray was in pieces at the end, poor guy, you couldn’t not feel for the kid. He ain’t going nowhere though. One day, he’ll get Slam. But not today, bitch.
