FEDERER BEATS MURRAY 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 FOR SEVENTH WIMBLEDON TITLE
A fantastic effort by Murray but ultimately again was beaten by the better player if not the best player to ever grace the SW19 courts.
Today's final marked a step in the right direction, Murray wasn't beaten by nerves or the occasion.
Early on, in fact, it was Murray who looked like a six-time champion rather than his rival and he won his first set in a major following three straight-sets defeats in his previous three final defeats.
A failure to close out some of his service games will grate, but Federer was deserving of a seventh Wimbledon title which sees him equal Pete Sampras's achievement.
It also sees him reclaim the world No 1 spot from Novak Djokovic and comes two years after his last major triumph.
The old master past it? No way.
