Murray is only 22 and will have another day at Wimbledon but this was a great opportunity for him. He has had the upper hand on both Roddick and Federer in recent encounters and might have been thinking that this was his year. In spite of Roddick's performance today, it's hard now to see beyond Roger Federer and a record breaking Wimbledon win on Sunday. Murray might have had the game to beat Roger but you have to beat all-comers first and he failed at the penultimate hurdle.
Still, I can go to Gatwick on Sunday to pick up friends without fretting about what I might be missing.
