Points won by each set: [ 37-31, 40-41, 30-19, 43-45, 27-15 ]
Points won directly behind the serve:
33 % Murray – 52 of 157
22 % Federer – 39 of 171

Important match in Murray’s [3] legacy, he had beaten his most difficult opponents (Nadal, Djokovic) at Slams, but lost to Federer [2] all their previous three major matches. The Scot was two points away from winning 2nd (5-all in the tie-break) and 4th set (he was serving at 6:5, 30/15). My description of the match.
One year later Federer avenges that defeat on the same court (they didn’t face each other in the meantime) in the quarterfinal.
