Djoker played 5 hours..
He is finished..

Murray saw the ball well today..
Murray wins in straights..

Djoker and Murray are sooo close..
But I gotta go with the guy closer to freshness..

Your move buffalo boy!


I'll take a stab at this 0ne Frog, but you'll need to give me more to work with.

First thing is Djokovic played for 4hrs 43 minutes. How are you getting 5 hours out of that? Must be you haven't been playing tennis lately.

Secondly, this is Djokovic's 9th Final in the last 12 years. Murray lost to Roger Federer last year in the Final.... No one from Britain has won the Wimbledon Final since Fred Perry in 1936. Djokovic won the Grand Slam just 2 years ago.

Djokovic has a lifetime 11-7 record over Murray right now as it is. Yes, Murray overcame a 2 set deficit today. How often do you think he plays like that?

I gotta go with reality here. Andy Murray will lose the elusive Wimbledon final Championship again this year. I say Djokovic wins.

And you can call me HOOTS buffalo boy!


I won't lie..
Im definitely picking the under dog..
There is a reason why the Djoker has won 6 slams..
But it would not surprise me if the Djoker is going to be a step and a half slower on sunday, after that epic semi-final match vs Del Potro..
Murray got exactly what he wanted, the longest semi-finals in wimbledon history..
I know Murray was awful in the quarters vs Verdasco..
But Andy dramatically raised his game vs Jerzy Janowiz..

It has all the makings of another classic..
Gotta go with Andy, who will become the first brit to win since 1936!
Talk about curses..

Good Luck Hoots!


I anticipate this being a classic match Frog. But again, you're relying on Djokavic being tired and out of step. I'm wondering if you're bandwagoning Murray even more than you've already admitted to though.

You've pointed out that Djokovic's match on Friday against Del Potro was the longest Wimbledon match in history. This is true. But...

I honestly don't understand why you're using that angle for debate???

Do you by any chance recall the Australian Open in January? Less than 175 days ago? Do you recall Djokovic's 4th round match against Stanislas Wawrinka? That match DID last 5 hours and is recorded as the 30th longest tennis match in history. We all know who won the Australian Open don't we?

I think anytime Djokovic and Murray square off we're in for one hell of a match up. I do believe however, that the 77 year Wimbledon British drought will continue. I'd be very surprised if...

A: Djokovic appears to look fatigued in any way

And

B: if Djokovic were to somehow lose to Murray

To quote our dear friend JimJ, who has said many times in many parts of this site "you can't make it up".


The curse is over!!!!!!


Good call Frog!

Djoker for 3 reasons. 1. he is better. 2. he is better. 3. he is better.

Djoker!

Murray played a pretty long time too, and Novak will be more rested seeing how he played the first game. Plus Murray has played more tennis to get to the finals throughout the tournament. Though I don't think this will make any difference and either will be tired.

Murray I don't think looked all that sharp in either the Quarters or Semi's.

Novak in 4 sets.

That semifinals of del po vs novak was one of the best matches I have ever seen..

July 6, 2013  02:09 PM ET

It's going to be hard to duplicate the delpo match

July 7, 2013  10:22 AM ET

djokovic looks tired ha ha!

July 7, 2013  11:31 AM ET

djokovic played a lot better vs del po..

That may have been Murray's last chance..

Congratulations Frog. I'm not going to make anymore predictions on Murray's behalf, but, I will tell you that the match was thrilling to put it mildly. Thanks for a good TD.
