As a player he should be used to hostile/biased (I don't think the crowds were hostile in his matches though). Nadal has been pretty candid about how he felt the french crowd never embraced or supported him, but it never stopped him from winning 8 haha.
Sad for Lisicki....welp Murray don't let me down.
Come on, Djokovic.

Really, English crowd? It's the first point and Djokovic missed and you're cheering like Murray hit an outstanding winner.

Massive cheering on a double fault? I know it ended up as a break, but...

Murray leads two sets to none.
Too bad, was rooting for Djokovic. Too many errors, and Murray played very well.
I was at a friends house over the weekend and he was kind enough to let me watch finals. Happy for Murrays win, wanted a 5 setter though. Djoker had his chances, being up in the 2nd/3rd sets iirc.
I was sleeping when the match started, and woke up in the 3rd set, with Djoko's net point in the final game
I don't really like any of them, I wanted Fed/Robredo/Haas to win it. And none of them was a black horse that I'd cheer (the no 1 against the local... who is the no 2 ), so idgaf
I stand corrected
Finally able to comment on the match, having spent the day watching it at a beer garden. I'm happy Murray won and on the day he was the better player and so deserved it. Djokovic was obviously affected by his semis match against Del Potro but like he said himself afterwards, he's been in similar situations. Murray just wanted it more I guess.
I was glad to see the english crowd cheering so loudly at Murray's points but I hate classessness and such one sided rooting, as I don't think many besides Djoko's own box was cheering for him. :/
Hopefully though, this will be first of a few more Wimbledon titles for Murray and maybe we'll see him challenging for the no.1 spot very soon. You can pretty much guess the sort of reception and attention his victory has gotten over here, but it's nothing until you actually experience it. There was no need to ask what people were doing yesterday because everyone was watching the match lol. The media coverage before, during and since the match has been close to absurd. There's already talks of knighthood~
Talks of knighthood are ridiculous, just like how it's ridiculous that Bradley Wiggins is now Sir Bradley Wiggins.
His confidence should be SKY HIGH at the moment. He's gotten two major monkeys off his back:
-Ending the brits wimbledon title drought first and foremost.
-Ceasing ANY thoughts of him being a one slam wonder.
Nothing to do but keep winning. Also, he and Djoker have contested 3 of the last 4 finals. Murray has been in 4 of the last 5 finals...Murryvic era has definitely started.
While I didn't see the match, Federer lost to a qualifier named Delbonis in a pair of tiebreaks in the Hamburg SFs.
His opponent played quite well, i expected it though. This tournament was a glorified test run for his new racquet.
Do you remember that guy a numbers of years ago who failed a drug test, came back a while later, beat Fed twice in a row (one time was when he was a lucky loser) and got to like No. 14 in the world, but then failed another drug test and we haven't heard from him since? I believe that his name was Guillermo Cañas.
His opponent actually almost won the tournament lol, squandered 5 match points.
Yeah Canas! Beat Federer in 07 in Indian Wells/Miami. It was one of the early signs that Federer was becoming more vulnerable a player. Canas retired in 2010, he went on to coach Ernests Gulbis for a year.
