Federer just too good for Murray in US Open Final

Federer celebrates

6-2 7-5 6-2, in just under two hours Roger Federer won his first Grand Slam of the year, and is now one away from equalling Pete Sampras’ total haul of 14. He does become the first person to have won two Grand Slams five years running. Quite simply Murray was outplayed by a contender for the best tennis player in the history of the game; though he did fight back to prevent a white wash in the third set.

“It definitely feels great,” said Federer afterwards. “This is a very special moment in my career.

“I had a couple of tough Grand Slams this year, finishing in semi-finals and two finals, one epic at Wimbledon.

“So to take this one home is incredible. It means the world to me.”

I had a great tournament but I came up against, in my opinion, the best player ever to play the game today
Andy Murray

He added: “I’m not going to stop at 13 – that would be terrible! I congratulate Andy – he’s done great these last two weeks. I’m sure we’re going to see a lot more of him in the future.”

Murray – the best days are yet to come.

  2. 13 grand slams by the age of 27 is pretty good. he makes history every time he steps onto a court it seems.

  3. If he wins the French Open he will be the greatest player ever – there will be no question on that score. At 27 he still has the chance to do so.

    But winning 5 grand slams in a row at Wimbledon and the US Open has settled it for me.

    Plus I rather fancy the cardigan he was wearing at this year’s Wimbledon.
