    Points won by each set: | 33-26, 35-23, 29-19 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    31 % Murray – 27 of 87
    24 % Federer – 19 of 78

    Federer [1] had three game points to level at 3-all in the 1st set, but failed and lost 9 games in a row in total! He was exhausted after a titanic semifinal battle against Juan Martin del Potro. The final lasted only 1 hour 56 minutes, Murray [4] finished it with an ace down the T. It was a revenge for their Wimbledon final played a month before. “Definitely easier winning in the final than losing,” Murray said. “This is the way to come back from the Wimbledon final. I’ll never forget it. It’s the biggest win of my life. This week has been incredible so far – I’ve had a lot of fun, the support’s been amazing. All of the events I’ve watched, the support has been amazing. I didn’t expect that at the start of the week, but I felt so fresh. I didn’t feel nervous, apart from the start. Tough conditions, very windy. I played a good match.”

    Murray’s route to the Gold medal:
    1 Stanislas Wawrinka (SUI) 6-3, 6-3
    2 Jarkko Nieminen (FIN) 6-2, 6-4
    3 Marcos Baghdatis (CYP) 4-6, 6-1, 6-4
    Q Nicolas Almagro (ESP) 6-4, 6-1
    S Novak Djokovic (SRB) 7-5, 7-5
    W Roger Federer (SUI) 6-2, 6-1, 6-4
