The media will be calling him Scottish instead of British again by Sunday night. Murray chokes in big matches. He has failed spectacularly in every Grand Slam final he's ever made. This is Wimbledon and he's the first Brit to make a final since before any of us were born. In other words, this is the most pressure he will ever be under. Federer is arguably the best player ever and definitely one of the five best of all time. He plays even better under pressure. I'll be surprised if Murray wins a set, never mind the match.

Well Murray calls himself Scotish not British, but we Brits still tend to support Scots.

I'm Soooooooooooooooooooooooooo glad Roger won, instead of the freeekin drama queen. The fuss would have been intolerbale otherwise, not to mention the hundreds of Soltires which were already waving in the croud of numpties every time he scored a point, being shoved in our faces :roll:


Well done ROGER.. Style and Class ruled once again :beer:

It is good to see Federer at top of a tournament again.

Let's face it. Murray never stood a chance against Federer. Least of all at Wimbledon.

Weird set of facts for you that my daughter told me.

Murray was the first man for 77 years to win Wimbledon, the last British person to win was Virginia Wade and she won it in 1977 and waht was the date on Sunday? Oh yeah 7-7 Odd eh?
