After a 40-minute rain delay that forced Wimbledon officials to close the center-court roof, No. 3 Roger Federer looked cool and relaxed, cruising to a 6-3 third-set victory over No. 4 Andy Murray.
With some perhaps thinking that momentum from his second-set victory would dissolve during the rain delay, Federer continued his strong play against Murray, winning 14-16 of his first serve points and 9-13 of his net approaches in the third set.
Murray, who slowly is looking overmatched by the more experienced and composed Federer, exhausted a lot of energy while being thrown around from end-to-end in elongated volleys. He lost a nearly 20-minute game seven, which included 10 deuces, to go down 5-2, and was really unable to recover from there.
Clearly the now-indoor setting is benefiting Federer, if not simply bothering Murray, as championship point could soon be upon us.
