Embrace the moment
So there are two options for today’s final: lament that it will not pit Rafael Nadal against Roger Federer, and refuse to watch as a result.
Or embrace the fact that a) Roger Federer still has a chance to salvage this season; and b) that he’s by no means a lock to do so.
I know, I know. Andy Murray doesn’t quite have the same Q-rating that the certain biceped left-hander would bring. I would have liked to cover a Wimbledon rematch, and I’m pretty sure everyone outside of the U.K. feels the same way. But Murray has his own appeal: an up-and-coming talent who could simultaneously enjoyÂ a career breakthrough, and give Britain its first men’s Grand Slam champion in 72 years.
And then there’s Federer. When you think about it, given the struggles the four-time defending champion has endured this year, it doesn’t really matter who he plays. If he ends up winning today, it’s still a return to prominence for a player mired in a season-long funk.
But again, that’s not neccessarily a sure thing…
