Roger Federer is now the US Open 2008 Mens singles champion. Yesterday Roger defeated Andy Murray in straight sets 6-2 7-5 6-2, to take the title. Federer is the first man since Bill Tilden in the 1920s to win five consecutive US Open titles.

Murray was never really in the match from the outset. Federer was quick to gain an early break in the first set and then never looked back. At one stage it was 2-2 in the first set, then Federer won 6 quick games to lead 6-2 2-0. Murray didn’t really bring his game to the court today, and Federer just seemed to have all the answers to whatever he did.

It was always going to be tough on Murray, his first Grand Slam final, and it was against one of the most professional and experienced players on tour. Federer was never going to lose this match, even though Murray did lead 2-1 in head to heads.

Congratulation Roger Federer!
