Many would claim Federer to be the favourite to win the Wimbledon title. Why not, as he has been one of the best Wimbledon champions of the modern era. He has had a good championship so far with victories against the likes of Djokovic, M. Youzhny and X. Malisse, etc. Murray has also had an impressive run up to the competition, as he has defeated much stronger players en route to the finals, such as J. Tsonga, D. Ferrer, M. Cilic and M. Baghdatis, etc. Hence, Andy would not be short of confidence during the finals.
Federer has a good service game, which can take the game away from the Brit. Hence, it is mandatory for Murray to up his game, if he wants to win his maiden Grand Slam title, which is not going to be an easy task. Murray is a good player from the baseline and his powerful shots could even make the best of the best players sweat, including Federer. On the other hand, Federer has class written all over his shots. He plays all the shots in a game with high-quality precision, which takes players by surprise too, sometimes. If Andy Murray wants to win the match, he must play out of his skin.
With all the home support and Murray's intent to clinch the title, Federer may still walk away with the crown for the 7th time, as he is the master of the grass courts. He failed to win his favourite Grand Slam in Wimbleodn 2010, 2011 in his last two outings. He won it last in 2009. Will 2012 be his Wimbledon year?
