Points won directly behind the serve:
19 % Nadal – 20 of 103
31 % Murray – 36 of 113

Murray [4] had been playing a perfect match until he led 2:1* (30/15) in the 2nd set; then he missed an easy forehand that should have given him a double break point, and the momentum shifted – Nadal [1] took the next seven games, and finished the 3-hour contest with an inside-out forehand winner on his third match point. Murray lost the Wimbledon semifinal for the third year running (the second time to Nadal).
