Tennis Grand Stand:
By Ritesh Gupta
Tennis is in me. It reflects. It invigorates me, strengthens me and keeps me going. It appeases me when things aren’t going my way. I want more of it, always. More on the court, more of it on my mobile, PC, tablet…it has to be in my thoughts. Yes, it’s a way of life.
But somehow I wanted all of it to stop on Sunday for Andy Murray.
I wobbled much before Murray lost the battle against now seven-time Wimbledon singles winner, Roger Federer.
It was a moment where I felt what if Murray falters in the final of Wimbledon 2012. At that point of time, I just hoped everything to get blown away as if nothing existed. Yes for Murray, not to go through what he eventually did after losing in four sets to Federer.
May be we can ask Andy Roddick what all Murray felt as he survived that half-hour or so after he shook hands with Federer to wrap up his loss at the net. But Murray, too, gave ample signs of the fact he was trodden from within, only to get crushed slowly. And when he ...

SO CLOSE, YET SO FAR
Andy Murray and Great Britian were unable to break a 74 year Wimbledon title drought.
It seems like all of Wimbledon is cheering for Andy Murray over Roger Federer today except for Murray’s girlfriend. She gave the golf clap a few times. Meanwhile, they are showing Murray’s hometown bar with a line of people out of the door going absolutely bat **** crazy. Federer almost took a ball to the face. Just look at all of these photos of everyone going freaking crazy...
Andy Murray took on Roger Federer at Wimbledon today and it looked like Murray had a chance. Murray was winning at first and then Federer started to take control of the game. After a rain delay, Roger Federer completely took control of the match and finished off Murray.
Murray got the chance to make his very emotional post game speech at Wimbledon to the crowd and everyone watching...
Hope turned to disappointment one more time for Andy Murray and British tennis.
Murray stood closer to the Wimbledon title Sunday than any British man had in three-quarters of a century, two sets away from ending one of the longest waits in British sports.
But he also stood across the net from Roger Federer, who knows better than anyone how to win on Centre Court, and who wasn...
''Murray Mania'' is in full bloom at Wimbledon, and all across Britain, ahead of Andy Murray's final against Roger Federer.
Despite persistent rain in the morning, thousands of British tennis fans arrived at the All England Club several hours ahead of the final to get a good spot on ''Murray Mount'' - formerly known as ''Henman Hill'...
As a Clevelander, nestled in an overstuffed couch with a cup of coffee, fighting off that morning after feeling that follows a wedding reception on what would serve to be the hottest day (and night) of the entire summer, I found it very easy to openly root for Andy Murray. This, within an event to which I am completely indifferent. Wimbledon to me is about the spectacle; the shear...
Andy Murray lost to Roger Federer in the Wimbledon final, but he took the loss like a man. Just kidding, he cried like a little *****. The post-game breakdown was complete with awkward silences, blubbering, and tears during his trembling speech.
Airing on cable television for the first time, the Wimbledon singles finals were a bit of a mixed bag for ESPN.

I didn’t mean that literally.
It was just sad to see Great Britain’s own Andy Murray lose to Roger Federer in the Wimbledon finals and get emotional when speaking to the crowd afterwards.
Not only did he lose out on the chance to win...
