2012 London Olympics: Rejuvenated Andy Murray dispatches Federer to win goldZeenews Sports Bureau

London: It was revenge time for Britain No. 1 Andy Murray. He clinched an Olympic gold medal at 2012 London Olympics outclassing the World No. 1 Roger Federer 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 in the men’s singles final on Sunday.

Murray spoiled Federer’s birthday party (August 08) as he defeated him in three straight sets.

It was the same Centre Court where Murray had lost the Wimbledon final against the Swiss a month back. But on Sunday, Murray gave Federer no chance whatsoever and defeated him convincingly.

Murray dominated the final to win 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 and exact devastating revenge for his defeat to Federer in last month's Wimbledon final at the All England Club.

The Scot dominated in almost every department, outscoring Federer on the forehand and backhand and keeping unforced errors to a minimum.

Murray's gold is Britain's first medal in Olympic tennis since 1920 and first men's singles medal since Josiah Ritchie won gold in London 104 years ago.

The bronze medal went to Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro, who beat Serbia's Novak Djokovic 7-5, 6-4.

London olympics are rigged. Djokovic who can make Federer to play long never ending rallies meakly surrenders in st shots, unbelievable semis. No wonder the results are filled with ambiguity of non doping performances. It looks like judges have been doped this time.
