Customer Review

on 26 April 2013
The DVD is up to Wimbledon's usual excellent standard except for the incorrect title. Matches are always described with the player named first who is highest in the draw - not highest seed but highest position in the draw.

The title of this DVD should be Roger Federer vs Andy Murray. Then there is no bias to either player. I musr assume Wimbledon decided to write it incorrectly so that Murray's name "stood out" in the hope all Murray fans would buy the DVD. It was to be expected that Federer fans would buy the DVD anyway.

It seems a small point but to the purists like myself, I really do not expect Wimbledon or the BBC or whoever titled the DVD to make such a glaring error.

In the match Federer started a little nervously whilst Murray, as seems to have been his habit often since Lendl has been coaching him, came all firing well and with what seemed like a considerable majority of the audience behind him, seemed to be somewhat in control, taking first set. But no-one who knows the supreme Federer would underestimate him and Federer was soon back on sufficient form to keep Murray at bay until end set 2 when all of a sudden Federer's genius appeared and he broke Murray's service to take the set whilst presumably Murray and the whole audience had been expecting a tie break.

After that Federer took over. During 20 minutes of to-ing and fro-ing, Murray was unable to take the 6th game on his service, whilst it seemed pretty clear that even if Federer didn't break this time he soon would as his game became more and more authoritative. Once Federer had finally broken Murray in that increasingly hilarious long game, Murray was really done for although he tried hard and continued to produce some very good shots. But Federer was now dictating the play,touching genius more and more times and by set 4 he was unplayable. In actual fact, he should have won the match on what turned out to be his ace in the final game at 40-15, but the ball was incorrectly called out and Federer didn't challenge - Hawkeye proved the ball was good. Federer lost his second serve point but won the next point and of course the match and the tournament for his record 7th Wimbledon win, which equals Sampras and if I recall rightly another great player of very long ago, and also Federer returned to World No.1 and a couple of weeks later passed Sampras's record of weeks at No. 1.

The cream was of course the delightful little twins of Federer and his wife Mirka appearing courtside to see Daddy receive his trophy. "Yes," Federer said to Sue Barker, "that's the best."

Murray gave it a very good try, his best yet in a Major on what is for him a very good surface and like as not some day he will win Wimbledon. He is surely No.2 in the world on grass with the Wimbledon final and his 2 Olympic Golds in 2012.
