The British tennis star, Andy Murray, has said that it was very hard to control the emotions after losing the Wimbledon final. The 25 year old tennis sensation cried a lot while addressing the people after the match. First of all, he gave congratulations to the great Roger Federer. Federer won the 7th singles title at Wimbledon, which is a record. He said the winning a singles title at Wimbledon is very hard and if you are playing in Federer’s era, it gets even harder.
Andy Murray belongs to Dunblane, which is a place in Scotland. He gave some consistent performances in the last few years but, he is not able to win a Grand Slam yet. He is currently positioned at no. 4 in the official rankings of World Tennis Association (WTA). But, unfortunately, he is playing in an era which is dominated by three legends of tennis i.e. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. Murray said that playing against Federer is very difficult. As per Murray, he made a good start by winning the first set. But, once Federer got into the groove, it was almost impossible to stop him.
When Murray was in tears after the match, many British supporters were also crying with him. The British people had massive hopes with Murray in the Wimbledon Championship of this year. He said that people of Britain gave him enormous support and due to their support, it became very easy for him to perform well. He said that he is gutted and it would take him some time to get rid of this disappointment. However, he said that, he would try again and again and hopefully, would win a Grand Slam pretty soon. The words of Andy Murray were so sentimental that his fans have started respecting him a lot more than before.

As Roger Federer waltzed past world number one Novak Djokovic in the semi final to seal his place in the final of Wimbledon at the All England Club, many people opined that the grass court surface, the Swiss player’s favorite surface had handed him the advantage over the Serbian ace, who is more accustomed to playing on the hard courts than the grass courts.
However, The Djoker does not believe in what is being said about FedEx and admitted that the Swiss Master deserved to be in the final of the greatest spectacle on the tennis calendar.
Federer is also in line to take over at the top of the tennis rankings from Djokovic, a position that he last held back in May 2010 after being on top for a record number of weeks. Read more »
World number one Novak Djokovic took just three sets to beat his young opponent Ryan Harrison at Wimbledon on Wednesday. The match took place in the evening under the closed roof of Centre Court, which perhaps slowed the Serb up enough for Harrison to at least steal a few games, finishing as it did 6-4 6-4 6-4. Djokovic never looked quite at his flowing best, but doesn’t yet need to be in just the second round of seven, and did easily enough to progress without much drama. The only moment that took all his concentration was to save 3 break points from 2-3 0-40 down in the second set, and once this mini-crisis was over, Djokovic was comfortable again. “I thought it was a very exciting match to be a part of as a player,” he said afterwards, “and I thought the crowd enjoyed it as well.”
The closed roof did play its part, with players so far this year generally feeling as though the court plays quite differently when covered. The humidity increases slightly, but the main factor is thought to be the lack of airflow which means that the air feels a lot warmer than it is – as if you were playing in oppressively calm weather. “It’s hard to prepare for that because you play indoor match on the Centre Court maybe once every couple of years,” Djokovic said. “2010 was my only match under the roof aside from tonights match. It is quite different. I think the lights were really good. The attendance was fantastic. The crowd enjoyed it. It was a spectacular match from a players point of view. Sometimes its good for a change to be under the roof. It makes it more interesting as well I think, if you go to the late hours.”
