This year’s Wimbledon has been one of full of shocks especially in the men’s draw with Wawrinka and Novak Djokovic falling in the first week.
Yesterday in the semi-final we saw, the greatest player of his generation Federer also head for the exit doors following a brutal encounter with Raonic who played an absolutely blinding game.
Milos Raonic becomes the first Canadian to play in a Grand Slam final when he takes on the British number one Andy Murray on Centre Court.
Murray has had a very routine tournament so far following a reunion with tennis idol Ivan Lendl prior to his sixth title at Queens. Murray dispatched with former finalist Berdych in straight sets.
The in-form Scot looks destined to win his second title at Wimbledon due to all the biggest challengers Djokovic, Wawrinka, Federer, Nishikori, Cilic all gone without a trace.
Murray is the heavy favourite for tomorrow’s match up but he will be wary of the Canadian and his powerful service game that gave Federer some real problems.
Murray knows how big the stage is for him tomorrow and he also knows for any other match at any other tournament this tie would be routine. He also knows this is a Wimbledon final, he is the overwhelming favourite and he has to perform. That pressure does not make the task easier.
The ball looks to be in Murray’s court, if he can hit the winner remains to be seen.
