He did good, let's hope he uses the experience to move up a gear. I think he's won a lot of people over with his emotional speech, perhaps he'll feel more support from now on.
I'm a bit puzzled by the positive reaction that his post-match interview seems to have gained. Basically, he showed that he couldn't hold himself together under pressure, something which, in my opinion, he also showed during the 3rd and 4th sets with all his huffing and puffing, the looks of pain and anguish etc. Okay, so he was probably struggling to stay in the game and was completely knackered, but I can't help that by showing this quite so openly he handed Federer a huge advantage. Everything about his body language in those last two sets was shouting out "I am a beaten man". Back to the interview, I'm not sure why people might like him better, or respect him more, because he fell apart emotionally.
(Note, I am not saying that he isnt allowed to fall apart emotionally, just that I can't really see why him doing so seems to have gathered such a positive response).
I was thinking very much the same. Defeat is always hard to take in a final but the post game interview gave a hint that maybe he lacks the mental strength needed to win a major tittle. He also started with 'I'm getting closer' but is he, has any of his 4 grand slam finals gone into 5 sets yet? It's interesting to note that before the game lots were saying in the roof stays open Murray could win but if the roof closes it's all Federer, I wonder how much this played on his mind?
He did great to get to the final the interview at the end was more becoming of an 18 year old beaten finalist then a 26(?) year old. Also his girlfriend seems to of prefected the 'Murray clan sour face look' to prefection !!!
