Wimbledon Final reaction: how the stars saw Andy Murray-Roger Federer unfold
Monday 09 July 2012
Boris Becker: "[Andy Murray] lost to a better player today. Most successful tennis player of all time and there's no shame in losing to Roger Federer."
Richard Krajicek: "Murray brought his A game but it wasn't enough. He had chances but the momentum of the match changed."
Pat Cash: "I don't think anyone can be called the greatest of all time but it is amazing that Federer is back at No 1. He has gone back to the drawing board. It is starting to click now and he is more aggressive. As long as he stays fit he is almost unstoppable."
Tiger Woods: "Hats off to Murray for a great fight. But we saw why Fed is the #GOAT."
Michael Owen: "Great final. Murray can hold his head high. Beaten by a legend."
Sepp Blatter: "Congratulations to Roger Federer. A record-equalling seventh #Wimbledon victory. Pushed all the way by Murray."
Rio Ferdinand: "Well done @andy_murray no disgrace losing to the best that ever played tennis..."
Sir Chris Hoy: "Hard luck to Andy Murray. He'll get there eventually and it'll be all the sweeter when he does."
Sachin Tendulkar: "With all the pressure and expectations Andy did a fabulous job. Well done Andy!!"
Rory McIlroy: "@andy_murray did himself, his family and his nation proud today. Played like a champ. His time will come for sure!"
Lee Westwood: "Well played andy but roger federer! Wow that was some tennis!"
Tim Henman: "Federer's ball striking and timing was immaculate. I don't think Federer plays as consistently as he did a couple of years ago, but when he plays his best tennis he is the best."
Russell Crowe: "Federer, all hail, 7th Wimbledon championship. Andy Murray, you are a champion in my eyes, one day mate it will be you."
