    Wimbledon Mens Final...

    So, it will be Roger Federer vs. Andy Murray on Sunday. Been a long time since a "Brit" raised the cup, 74 years to be exact, keep waiting, Federer will crush him.

    Lol John.

    Yeah I too think Federer will have him, but he's played some good Tennis to get into the finals so far so who knows! Was a good match, thought if Tsonga started the first 2 sets with a bit more urgency he'd have walked it, but it wasn't to be.

    I'm hoping Murray will win, it's not like he doesn't stand a chance. He had a pretty hard draw this time at Wimbledon and came through and let's face it Federer isn't what he used to be...

    Wimbledon always has used the term (GBR) Great Britain, its the same for the Davis cup Fed cup and the Olympics.

    Federer himself said Murray has won more of the matches they've met in than he has.

    Roger Federer is considered by some to be the best player ever to have graced the sport but don't count Murray out just yet. Federer isn't.

    I am a Murray fan ,but Fed wins this Easy IMO ,Murray looked like his bottle was going late in the 3rd Set ,While Federer looks like he's getting back to the old Federer again .either Way hope Murray wins it.

    With you there.
    Murray was playing perfect in the first 2 sets Tsonga didn't know what to do but something changed in the 3rd Tsonga went for trainer attention due to his back (yet he kept making amazing dives to win points) and he came out a new improved player and Murray's nerves got to him.
    If anything nerves are Murray's downfall. Champions do not let anything bother them, they just get on with it but Murray lets things fester and blames something other than him for his misfortune mid game, you know you often see him throwing his arms up and mouthing stuff.

    So how do we explain almost being put out by Ferrer, a game where he was virtually beaten but failed to go down. Instead, fighting back and taking the win?

    Murray hasn't had an easy run to get to the final. It's a place he deserves to be and is clearly capable of taking home the win.

    On his court antics, I get the impression he gives himself a hard time when he does make unforced errors etc. Haven't seen him blame anything else for his game but happy to be corrected on that point.

    Oops. You're forgetting the rule of the English press. Right now he's British. He's only Scottish when he loses.

    Don't really care for Serena.. seems to think she's superior and treats other people like s*** (threatening to shove a tennis ball down someone's throat and kill them?)

    But Federer.. class.. I still remember Wimbledon 2004 and have been watching him since.. and many of the heartbreaks against Nadal. Hoping he'll win today!

    Yep, totally agree, was hoping she would lose yesterday.

    Congratulations to Federer, good match, certainly didn't breeze through it like I thought he would. Props to Murray, the pesky fly he always seems to be...

    Federer was immense in the latter stages of the match.
    Happy to see Murray at least win a set.

    True that R3D D3V!L. Federer was just in another league today, especially after the first set and when the roof went on. Murray started off well but couldn't sustain it..I knew that'd happen . I think he played a decent game though. Federer though, ultimate professional. Can't help but love the guy

    I backed Fed, but wanted Murray to win. Simply because being from a country that hadn't won a Rugby world Cup for 20+ years (until last year of coruse), must be tough for Brits going 70 odd years without a championship at the major sports they created (tennis), and around the same time for a Soccer world cup.
