Roger Federer Defeats Andy Murray to Claim Wimbledon

July 8th— Britain has not won a Grand Slam tournament since 1936 and Andy Murray attempted to end that drought this year. Going into the match, Andy was the fan favorite, supported by Scots and Brits alike.  Roger Federer, however, played a perfect match and ended up beating Murray in four sets.

Right after Murray lost the second set (which tied up the match to a set apiece), rain unexpectedly halted all play. Unfortunately for Murray, it gave Federer just enough time to revitalize himself, as he his ensuing serves seemed nearly impossible to stop.  Andy also had a strong performance giving it all he had each and every point.  It was an emotional loss for Andy who was trying desperately to give his fans – and Scotland – a long awaited Wimbledon Title.  Furthermore ,the loss marked his 3rd in a grand slam tournament to Federer.

Federer’s dominance in men’s tennis has been remarkable to watch.  At 30, he has claimed his 17th major championship and his 7th Wimbledon Title.  He is now tied with the elite group that includes Pete Sampras and William Renshaw, the only men to win seven Wimbledon titles.  In addition, with the win on Sunday, he has returned to his number one world ranking which he held in 2009.
