Murray spoils dream final


Andy Murray got in the way of the final everyone outside of Great Britain wanted, defeating Rafael Nadal 6-4 in the fourth set.

Murray broke Nadal in a spectacular final game, capping off a 62-minute set. He finished the match 4 of 20 on break point conversions, while Nadal was 2 of 3.

That definitely takes some steam out of the final, but Murray is an excellent all-around player and should give Federer a challenge. I’d still take Federer in four.
