Andy Murray has advanced the semifinals of the US Open. Murray beat Marin Cilic, 3-6, 7-6 (4), 6-2, 6-0 on Wednesday. Things didn’t look promising, which is perhaps why Pippa Middleton skipped over to Andy Roddick’s match, until Murray broke twice after the second match and made a comeback. Now I’m sure Middleton wishes she had seen that. Now the best part of this story has finally come Murray will either play Roger Federer or Tomas Berdych next. Yes, that means that
if when Federer beats Berdvch, we will have the rematch we’ve all been waiting for.
I am super excited.
It is a very conflicting feeling having Roger Federer win his 7th Wimbledon. On one hand I am happy as an American. On the other I am so sad for poor Andy Murray. Murray would have been the first Brit(he’s technically Scottish but that’s apart of GB still) to win since 1936. But instead he lost and Federer became the oldest man(30) since 1975 to win. At least Murray put in a good fight. The score was 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4.
It was so close that Murray even got angry which we all know is a no-no for the reserved English culture. He even slammed his racket down. I wonder what Prince William and Kate thought of that in their Royal box? Murray started out strong breaking Federer’s serves and calling plays. But in the end he just couldn’t keep up.
So now that Serena Williams and Federer have won at 30, does that mean 30 is the new 20? May just in tennis.
