A partisan crowd created an electric atmosphere on Centre Court and out on Henman Hill as a nation dreamed that Murray would go on to become Britain's first Wimbledon champion since Fred Perry.    

Murray gave his fans hope by claiming the first set but once Federer levelled the match at one set all, he started to produce some of the tennis which saw him remain virtually untouchable for so many years before going on to win 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4.

Murray had his chances in the second set with Federer fighting off multiple break points before producing a couple of moments of magic to level the match. Rain started to fall early in the third set but instead of the delay helping Murray, it merely brought the best out of Federer.

Federer is without doubt the best indoor player in the world and with the Centre Court roof now closed, he soon took control in the early stages of the third set, winning a tumultuous sixth game to go 4-2 up. At 2 sets to 1 down, anyone but the most ardent Murray fans sensed that the game was up. The British player looked spent and despite continuing to pound down serves well over 130 mph, the inevitable quickly came - Federer broke serve and try as he might, Murray could not find a way back into the match.

 "Andy will at least win one Grand Slam," Federer told the crowd. "I think I played some of my best tennis in the last couple of matches. I've missed playing in the finals, and it feels like a great moment. I've gone through some struggles, so this one comes at the right time."
