    That was not total destruction but a lesson by a master to a worthy apprentice! Federer beat Murray roundly and soundly!

    The kid's is only 22, has enormous potential and should only get better. He got a little blinded in the pressure lights of a major against a a master. I thought his chances would have been even had he not choked in that critical third set. Had Murray won set three the pressure/momentum would most definitely have shifted to Murray. had he then pulled of set four I would have thought Federer would have wilted in the heat agsint a younger player! Scotland in particular and UK in general has everything to be proud of and no shame in this loss!

    It is ridiculous the number of people in England who don't realise Scottish money is valid here. On the other hand, I had a pub in Dundee refuse to accept an English twenty pound note - "too big a forgery risk" apparently.

    Could be . He seemed happy enough to accept "proper" money from me, though.

    Isn't it odd how the title to this thread is about Murray and goes off on a tangent into a discussion about currency?

    I hope Andy can take away the positives from this slam and build on it to make a good showing at Roland Garros.

    Kudos to Fed for his consistently solid/excellent play when the chips are down.

    no... not when you consider the thread was created by an englishman laughing at the fact a scot couldn't beat the best tennis player of all time in a slam final.
