Britain’s Murray Beats Federer to Win Tennis Gold

This time Andy Murray wouldn’t be denied.

Beaten in the Wimbledon final by Roger Federer, the Brit delighted a capacity crowd at the all-England Club, by beating Switzerland’s Roger Federer in straight sets, 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 to win the Gold Medal in men’s singles at the London Olympics.

This may have been a breakthrough win for Murray, who lost all four Grand Slam finals in which he has appeared, three of them to Federer.

It was a disappointing loss for Federer, who, playing in his fourth Olympics, was going for the only title which has eluded him.  The silver medal is the first singles medal Federer has won.

Murray fought off nine break points in the match and, at one point, won nine straight games to take control of the day.
