Roger Federer today defeated Andy Murray 6–3 6–4 7–6 (13–11) in the final of the Australian Open, winning the tournament for a fourth time. The Swiss Federer, who is ranked world number one in men’s tennis, has now won a total of sixteen Grand Slam titles.

Cquote1.svg I can cry like Roger, it’s just a shame I can’t play like him. Cquote2.svg

—Andy Murray

Going into the final Murray had won six of the ten matches where the two players had met before, and had hopes of becoming the first British man to win a Grand Slam title in 74 years. The last was Fred Perry, who won the US Open in 1936. In 2008 Federer and Murray met in the final of that tournament, where the Swiss player won an easy victory.

This time the match was closer, with Murray fighting hard in the third set and at one point leading it 5–2. Federer pulled back to force a tie break, where he eventually triumphed after 2 hours 41 minutes of play.

After the match an emotional Murray said: “I can cry like Roger, it’s just a shame I can’t play like him. I loved every minute of it and hopefully one time I can come back and win here.”

Federer said he was “over the moon” to win again, and congratulated Murray on his performance in the tournament, saying he was “too good a player not to win a Grand Slam.”

The Australian Open, held on hard courts at Melbourne Park, is the first Grand Slam tennis tournament of the year. The top prize is A$2,000,000. Federer previously won in 2004, 2006 and 2007.

Victorious: Andy Murray at this year’s French Open

Scottish tennis player Andy Murray has won the Montreal Masters event in Canada. Murray, who recently reached number two in the world, defeated Argentina’s Juan Martin del Potro.

Murray lost the first set in a tie break after both men held each and every serve in the set. Del Potro had the early advantage in the second set, but this too required a tie break after reaching 6-6. Potro received treatment to his shoulder at this point but managed to return to the game.

According to The Guardian, del Potro looked tired in the third set and this was ultimately won by Murray 6–1, giving the overall victory to the Scot. He is now set to head to the Cincinnati Open next week to defend his title from last year.

Rafael Nadal at the 2009 Australian Open

Rafael Nadal, the 2008 Men’s Singles winner at the Wimbledon Championships, announced today his withdrawal from the 2009 Championships because of a knee injury caused by his tendinitis. The formal announcement came after he had played the second of his warm-up matches.

Cquote1.svg I am picking Andy Murray or Roger Federer Cquote2.svg

—Bjorn Borg

On Thursday, whilst playing Lleyton Hewitt, Nadal had experienced issues with moving about the court. Again, whilst playing Stanislas Wawrinka today, he had problems and lost the match.

He will be the first champion to not defend his Wimbledon championship since Goran Ivanišević pulled out in 2002.

As a result, fifth seed Juan Martín del Potro takes Nadal’s place in the first quarter of the draw, seventeenth seed James Blake takes del Potro’s place in the fifth quarter, Nicolas Kiefer becomes the thirty-third seed and takes Blake’s place in the fourth quarter, with his own previous spot now filled by lucky loser Thiago Alves.

Björn Borg was quoted on Tuesday (June 16) as saying “Nadal is always a dangerous player because he is the best in the world — but what happened in Paris and then the injury, I am picking Andy Murray or Roger Federer. […] For Nadal to win five in a row (at the French Open) was a big goal this year. I am sure he was very, very disappointed when he went home after Paris. That defeat took him many, many days to get over. Nadal is saying he has got an injury, but he has to be fit at Wimbledon if he wants to go all the way, and I do not think he will go all the way this year.”

Britain’s Andy Murray today was defeated by Rafael Nadal, who is ranked as the second best tennis player in the world, in the quarter finals of the Wimbledon Championships. Nadal won by three sets to none.

As the winner, Nadal will face Rainer Schuettler or Arnaud Clement in the final. Except for in the Australian Open, neither Schuettler or Clement have got past the quarter final of a major tournament, while Nadal has won several international competitions. Reaching the quarter finals is Murray’s most successful run.

Murray was born in Scotland in 1987 and he is currently Britain’s highest ranked player, at number eleven worldwide. A successful run at Wimbledon would have meant that Murray’s ranking would have risen higher.

Nadal was born in Spain in 1986, and his ranking is second only to that of Roger Federer. He is well known for winning a record 81 consecutive clay court matches.

Murray started the first set well, with him being close behind for much of the first half of the set. After Murray had won three games of the set, however, his play got worse and he lost the set 6-3.

Nadal dominated much of the second set, and he got a clear lead at the early stages of the set. Murray, fought back unsuccessfully, although he managed to stay only one game behind Nadal at the early stages of the set. The set finished with Nadal winning by six games to two.

The first game of the third set was won by Murray, although Nadal won the next game without letting his opponent score a single point. Murray almost broke serve in the third game, although he started to fall apart after he had won thirty points.

The set’s next three games were very similar to the first three, with the two opponents being on an equal score after six games. Nadal then won the next three games to take the match.

Before the match, Murray said that he thought he had a chance of beating Nadal. “Obviously he’s the favourite for the match but I do think that I can win,” he said, speaking to BBC Sport.
