LONDON – Roger Federer’s three-set demolition of Andy Murray at Wimbledon on Friday gave a succinct answer to those who question why the Swiss continues to play deep into his thirties when he has already won everything the game has to offer.
“They helped me rather than hindered me”, said Federer who said he was looking forward to meeting Murray. She’s the first Spanish woman to advance to the Wimbledon final since Arantxa Sanchez Vicario in 1996. Then again, there was no shame in a 6-4 4-6 3-6 6-4...
Early in the third set of Andy Murray’s Wimbledon quarter-final against Canadian Vasek Pospisil the Centre Court scoreboard flashed a message warning of the impending shutdown of the London Underground.
Until Gasquet dropped to his back at the baseline when French Open champion Wawrinkas last backhand sailed long, it appeared this might be the first Wimbledon semifinals in 20 years involving men seeded 1-4.
