video | Federer, Murray set for Wimbledon final

The time has come for yet another Wimbledon final. Roger Federer meets Britain’s Andy Murray in the final tomorrow.

16-time Grand Slam winner Roger Federer said that this has been a tough tournament for him and he has worked really hard in the past two years to reach a level where he stands out. In the match between him and the Serbian Novak Djokovic, Federer was exquisite in his play and answered all his critics why he is still considered by some the best tennis player ever to have stepped on grass centre stage. With a semifinal win in just 4 sets, lasting only 2 hours and 19 minutes, Federer reached his 8th Wimbledon final.

On the other hand, Britisher Andy Murray has had an excellent tournament so far with wins over some of the toughest opponents to make his way to the first-ever Wimbledon final. It had been a long time since a British player stepped into the final. The semi-final match between Murray and Tsonga was another classic filled with drama when Murray took the first two sets and Tsonga was on song in the third set, but Andy Murray soon realized that if that kept going on, Tsonga could bounce back, and sorted out things in the fourth set to close the match in almost 3 hours.

If the statistics are analyzed, Federer and Murray have met on 15 different occasions in their careers and Murray leads this record by 8 wins to Federer’s 7. In all the matches, the two have met twice in the Grand Slams and Federer has won in both of those meetings. Both players have never met on grass, so this is where the excitement starts to build up. Above all, Federer has played 7 Wimbledon finals and won 6 times and Murray has never played in this tournament’s final.

It would be easy to say that Federer will be crowned champion based on the statistics, but like every other sport, tennis can prove to be cruel, since it all depends on who plays better tennis on the day.

Rest assured, this match will go down in the history books as another classic, since Britain has hope to clear out the voodoo that has been agonizingly prevailing for over 8 decades and for Roger Federer, it will be a slam win in over 2 and half years with a record 17th time, which will possibly take him back to the top of the men’s tennis rankings, making him number 1 for yet another time.
