Its interesting to note that instead of fully supporting Murray who had a more difficult draw than Federer n a finalist since 1938, half d court were supporting Federer. What is happening to patriotism!!!! Murray deserves much more but d crowd responded only when he had lost...

Federer is one of the greatest players ever and is a fan favourite all over the world. You can't expect 15,000 people to all vote for Murray as there were likely some people from Switzerland in the crowd. I feel somewhat bad for Murray, however, Federer the better man won so you can't feel that bad for Murray.

I was thinking the same thing. Murray was playing at home in front of his countrymen with a chance to end a 77 year drought. You would think he would get unanimous support. Instead, quite a few people were pulling for Federer. One can't help but wonder if there still remains a bit of animosity in Britain for the Scots.

Why would he get unanimous support? Obviously there are always going to be some Federer fans no matter where he goes as he has such a great reputation all over the world. Can you not think of anything intelligent to say yet?
