Moments earlier, with the crowd at Centre Court roaring "AN-DY," Federer wrapped up his record-tying seventh Wimbledon singles title by winning his final service game of the match. The raucous, partisan crowd at the All England Club -- which included Kate and Pippa Middelton -- had hoped to see Murray become the first British man to win the singles title at Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936.
Unfortunately for those fans, the 25-year-old from Glasgow was overwhelmed by Federer, who grabbed hold of the match during a taut second set and went on to win 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4. Unable to celebrate an iconic win by Murray, the crowd was stuck witnessing Federer make history of his own.
In the moments after the match, Murray did manage to get the spotlight back from his competitor by delivering a tearful speech.
