Despite that fact that this match was a five set match, it only lasted for 1 hour and 56 minutes. What beats me is that the semi-finals lasted for 4 hours and 20+ minutes, but the finals only last for half of that time. Federer had a total of 31 unforced errors, and as for Murray, he hit 17 unforced errors. Murray finished the match with his service game, and hit 3 aces in the final game. His fastest serve in the match was 218kph, while Roger hit a 202kph serve. Murray hit three more aces than Federer overall in the match, but Federer hit 4 more service aces than Murray. Andy played extremely well, well enough to earn the London 2012 Olympic Gold Medal.

Congratulations Murray!

As for the bronze, Juan Martin del Potro won against world number 3 Novak Djokovic with a game count of 7-5, 6-4, which lasted for 1 hour and 48 minutes. Djokovic amazingly hit 10 service aces, but was not able to break Del Potro’s serve, resulting in the loss.

Here are the points that will be awarded to the medalists.

  • Andy Murray – 750
  • Roger Federer – 450
  • Juan Martin del Potro – 340
  • ( [NOT A MEDALIST] Novak Djokovic – 270)

Federer will remain in the number one spot, and will not be playing in Toronto this year.

Once again, congrats Murray!
