Novak Djokovic was taking risks because he was tired, and Andy Murray capitalized with flawless defense.
Andy Murray finally won one for the Brits, defeating top-seeded Novak Djokovic in straight sets for the Wimbledon title. Still, it wasn’t easy:
Murray has definitely paid his dues, and it’s nice to see him finally get what he so desperately wanted.
Roger Federer isn’t finished yet. The six-time Wimbledon champ took out defending champ Novak Djokovic to get to his record 8th final at Wimbledon with the chance to tie Pete Sampras and his seven titles.
Things are getting pretty interesting in men’s tennis with Novak Djokovic’s victory over Rafael Nadal to win Wimbledon. Nadal has now lost five times to Djokovic this year, and here’s his quote after today’s loss:
Roger Federer continued his dominant season, defeating Novak Djokavic to capture his third Western & Southern Financial Group Masters in Cincinnati.
Well, ladies and gents, it looks like we have a favorite going into the 2009 U.S. Open. Of course, this has already been a remarkable year for Fed, regaining his No. 1 ranking and becoming the Grand Slam record holder. That’s all well and good, but I’m hoping Federer doesn’t cruise through the U.S. Open. His loss to Rafael Nadal in the final at the Australian Open was great, as was his victory over Andy Roddick in the final at Wimbledon. Still, it’s seemed like he’s had an easy time since Nadal took some time off to nurse his knees. Thankfully, Andy Roddick has had a surprising year, giving the fans another epic Wimbledon final, nearly beating the Federer on his favorite surface.
Hopefully, Nadal can regain his prowess and make a run at the U.S. Open, the only Grand Slam he’s never won. Federer’s secured his place in the pantheon of tennis, so now I don’t feel like a have to root for the guy in every match. I’d like to see the wealth spread a little. Where you at Roddick and Blake?
