Murray started off the match strong, taking the first set 6-4. The key moment was in the second set, when Murray fought back after being broken, and missed a backhand on a breakpoint at 4-4 that could have made him a heavy favorite to go up 2 sets to none. Instead, it was Federer who broke Murray to win the second set 7-5, and then go on to win the last two sets in dominant Federer fashion.
Roger Federer has now tied Pete Sampras for the most Wimbledon titles of all-time, and has also regained the #1 ranking in the world.
