Britain’s Dream of lifting the Wimbledon trophy ends in tears

UK: Andy Murray's dream of lifting the Wimbledon trophy ended in tears today after he was soundly beaten in the final by Swiss master Roger Federer.

Federer simply outclassed the 25-year-old Scot to win an astonishing 17th Grand Slam 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 and match Pete Sampras's record of seven Wimbledon singles titles Being interviewed after the game, an exhausted Murray broke down in tears as he congratulated his opponent. His mother Judy and girlfriend Kim Sears could also be seen sobbing in the stands. A celebrity-studded crowd, including the Duchess of Cambridge and her sister Pippa Middleton, had cheered Murray on as he got off to a storming start, breaking Federer's serve in the first game and playing with confidence and determination to take the first set. Putting on a brave face Murray said: ‘I'm getting closer.

I'm going to try this and it's not going to be easy,’ the 25-year-old said, to deafening applause.

‘First I would like to congratulate Roger, I was getting asked the other day after I won my semi-final, is this your best chance, Roger is 30 now? He isn't bad for a 30-year-old.

‘He played a great tournament, he had some struggles early on with his back and showed what a fight he still has in him, so congratulations, you deserve it.’ Speaking about ‘Team Murray’, he said: ‘I'm going to try and not look at them because I'll probably start crying again but everyone who is in that corner over there, who has supported me...we did a great job, so thank you.
