There is no place to hide. Thank you for joining us.

:00:12.:00:22.
:00:22.:00:22.

Thanks to our team on the ground. That is the women's marathon. The

:00:22.:00:25.

athletics continues tonight in the stadium, with the women's 400m

:00:25.:00:28.

hurdle heats at 7pm. Then there's the small matter of

:00:28.:00:31.

the 100m semis at 7.45pm. Whatever you have planned for your Sunday

:00:31.:00:35.

night, make sure you're with us on BBC One at 9.50pm, for the final.

:00:35.:00:40.

But, before that, there's plenty coming up this afternoon.

:00:40.:00:46.

Having reached the Wimbledon final four weeks ago, Andy Murray has two

:00:46.:00:53.

chances of a gold medal today. Ben Ainslie could clinch his 4th

:00:53.:01:03.
:01:03.:01:10.

gold medal. There is historic action with

:01:10.:01:15.

through women's first ever boxing bout, Natasha Jones goes for Team

:01:15.:01:25.
:01:25.:01:25.

The let us go to the ExCel Arena, this is a moment of history. This

:01:25.:01:35.
:01:35.:01:47.

is the moment that the sport has competing in the Olympic Games

:01:47.:01:53.

boxing tournament. A significant and sturdy gender barrier has come

:01:53.:01:58.

crashing down with their inclusion in the boxing tournament for the

:01:58.:02:07.

first time in 108 years. Boxing was first a demonstration event. Here,

:02:07.:02:13.

at the 30th Olympiad, women are competing on equal terms in the

:02:13.:02:22.

boxing ring. It is being contested by the Russian, Savelyeva, and her

:02:22.:02:31.

opponent, Kim, from the People's Republic of Korea.

:02:31.:02:36.

Kim has suddenly started strongly, very positive on the front.

:02:36.:02:46.
:02:46.:02:49.

Savelyeva does preferred the back for it -- foot. A rematch of the

:02:49.:02:59.
:02:59.:02:59.

last two World Championships when these boxers met, in 2012, in China.

:02:59.:03:09.
:03:09.:03:15.

The Russian has prevailed in their previous two about. -- bouts.

:03:15.:03:25.
:03:25.:03:27.

Women's contests are fought over four two-minute rounds. Kim just

:03:27.:03:31.

smothering her own work, launching an attack from the centre of the

:03:31.:03:39.

ring. She is not getting the benefit of her combinations,

:03:39.:03:49.
:03:49.:03:56.

of the stop. And, the end of the first round, it is as tight as we

:03:56.:04:05.

expected it to be between these two high quality boxers. 3-2, in favour

:04:05.:04:11.

of the Russian. I think that is about right, Savelyeva is clever,

:04:11.:04:18.

she picks her shop's, she doesn't waste much. Kim had good

:04:18.:04:23.

combinations but smothered her work, so the sport is about right for now.

:04:23.:04:33.
:04:33.:04:45.

He a good right hand by Kim, the first round of this -- feeling

:04:45.:04:55.
:04:55.:05:30.

this women's 51 kg flyweight lightest of the three divisions

:05:30.:05:39.

being contested here at London 2012. Against a fellow three-time World

:05:39.:05:47.

Championship contender. Savelyeva is clever, she does tie her

:05:47.:05:53.

opponent up. Savelyeva, moving nicely to the side, to give her a

:05:53.:05:56.

room, to place herself back into the centre where she has plenty of

:05:56.:06:06.
:06:06.:06:35.

room to move off when Kim launches straight lines. -- her attacks in

:06:35.:06:40.

straight lines. She needs to come in from an angle to get that

:06:40.:06:46.

advantage against Savelyeva. Savelyeva has returned to the

:06:46.:06:51.

orthodox stance. The referee to stipulating that she wants the

:06:51.:06:59.

boxes to keep their heads up. Kim getting through with a good right

:06:59.:07:09.
:07:09.:07:10.

several occasions about tucking the club beneath the arms. If the

:07:10.:07:16.

warnings continue to come, it could result in a public warning of which

:07:16.:07:21.

would be two points on to the score of Savelyeva. Here we are, it been

:07:21.:07:25.

the ExCel Arena, in London, we are saying this first ever of women's

:07:25.:07:34.

boxing, it in Olympic history. The lead has been doubled in favour of

:07:34.:07:43.

Savelyeva. Leading 6-4. Savelyeva it is very clever on the inside,

:07:43.:07:49.

she holds on the blind side of the referee. Derek astute boxer in that

:07:49.:07:59.
:07:59.:08:21.

was the only one which did not feature both men and women. That

:08:21.:08:27.

was changed in 2009 when it voted Committee voted to include women.

:08:27.:08:37.
:08:37.:08:39.

Women boxers here in the Alex -- and limping boxing tournament. --

:08:39.:08:49.
:08:49.:09:05.

ropes. It is good to see Savelyeva starting off more offensively.

:09:05.:09:15.
:09:15.:09:18.

Throwing the first phase, cantering that attack. -- countering. These

:09:18.:09:23.

two met in the last two World Championships. A good exchange

:09:23.:09:30.

bringing applause from the crowd as Savelyeva continues to switch. In

:09:30.:09:40.
:09:40.:09:41.

2010, at 54 kgs, she lost to Savelyeva in the final. And at the

:09:41.:09:48.

quarter-final stage, it in China, earlier this year. Fishing in 7th

:09:48.:09:58.
:09:58.:10:01.

place. She launches from a little bit too far out. She needs to

:10:01.:10:08.

become aggressive now, to throw first. To throw more punches, to

:10:08.:10:13.

make up this deficit against Savelyeva. How difficult it is a

:10:13.:10:20.

deficit in the context of this contest. With such a short rounds.

:10:21.:10:25.

With just two minutes, instead of three minutes which the men compete

:10:25.:10:32.

at. It doesn't give you much of time. Actually, if you get a lead

:10:32.:10:40.

in the first rounds, it is very difficult to make up. Savelyeva led

:10:40.:10:48.

by one point after the first, and after three rounds of boxing,

:10:48.:10:53.

Savelyeva, from Russia, leads by three, she has extended her lead

:10:53.:11:03.
:11:03.:11:04.

once more. 9-6, in her favour. Small, little head movements from

:11:04.:11:14.
:11:14.:11:29.

Savelyeva. Then she moves nicely to final round. The deficit is a

:11:29.:11:33.

challenge, particularly when faced with a boxer who is moving as

:11:33.:11:41.

efficiently as Savelyeva. The 4th and final two minute round is

:11:41.:11:51.
:11:51.:11:52.

underweight in the women's 51 programme flyweight class. -- 51

:11:52.:12:01.

kilogramme. Savelyeva, happy to hold on, she is

:12:01.:12:11.
:12:11.:12:12.

three points up. Came macro fiercely tried to work her hands --

:12:12.:12:22.
:12:22.:12:23.

Kim. A good right hand from her. And she got through with the second.

:12:23.:12:30.

Look at the arm, being tucked beneath those of Savelyeva. But

:12:30.:12:38.

scoring effectively. Knowing that she is trailing by three points.

:12:38.:12:44.

And has only one more round to turn it around. She has come out in far

:12:44.:12:53.

more aggressive fashion in this final round. She is less

:12:53.:13:03.
:13:03.:13:10.

Clinging on, preventing her opponent from working away, saying

:13:10.:13:16.

to the referee she is not doing anything. But that is about

:13:16.:13:26.
:13:26.:13:34.

blind side of the referee. Difficult to do anything when she

:13:34.:13:43.

is held. A first warning for Savelyeva. A left hand attack. But

:13:43.:13:53.
:13:53.:13:58.

this first ever women's Olympic bout, the woman In Red appears to

:13:58.:14:02.

have done enough to progress through to the quarter-finals in

:14:02.:14:12.
:14:12.:14:28.

deficit, probably has not done make up for three points she was

:14:28.:14:35.

down going into the last. All of the ring craft and guile of 28-

:14:35.:14:40.

year-old Savalyeva was on display. She just prevented came from

:14:40.:14:46.

working at the tempo she would like. She was employing a sneaky little

:14:46.:14:50.

clutches, particularly on the blind-side of the referee. Now we

:14:50.:14:54.

are about to get the official verdict in the first-ever women's

:14:54.:14:59.

bout in the history of the Olympic bout in the history of the Olympic

:14:59.:15:05.

Games. Ladies and gentlemen, the winner by a score of 12 points to

:15:06.:15:10.

nine, in the red corner, representing the Russian Federation,

:15:10.:15:20.
:15:20.:15:27.

In a contest between these two familiar rivals, it is Elena

:15:27.:15:31.

Savalyeva who has prevailed again. She has booked her place in the

:15:31.:15:38.

quarter-finals. 12-9. The Olympic boxing ring has been the birthplace

:15:38.:15:43.

for so many Olympic legends now has a fresh chapter as women are

:15:43.:15:48.

competing for the first time as they set about building their own

:15:48.:15:52.

Olympic legacy. Britain's Natasha Jonas us will be

:15:52.:15:56.

in action in about half an hour. It will be available on the red button.

:15:56.:16:01.

A lot of people pointing out to me that men a lot it to do -- not

:16:01.:16:07.

allowed to do synchronised swimming, I know. Tennis has been one of the

:16:07.:16:11.

originals. Women were allowed to compete in 1,900. The women's

:16:11.:16:13.

compete in 1,900. The women's doubles gold medal match is in

:16:13.:16:18.

progress right now. The Williams sisters have match point. That has

:16:18.:16:23.

been saved by the Czech Republic pair. For Williams sisters trying

:16:23.:16:27.

to win the doubles gold medal together for the third time. They

:16:27.:16:34.

won it in 20021008. They would become the first tennis players,

:16:34.:16:39.

male or female, to win four Olympic gold medals because both of them

:16:39.:16:44.

have won the singles titles. We will be back at Wimbledon when that

:16:44.:16:51.

match has concluded. The gold medal match in the men's singles is

:16:51.:16:56.

between Murray and Federer. We are now going to head to the Jurassic

:16:56.:17:02.

Coast of Dorset. There's been an upset. Leading overnight in the

:17:02.:17:06.

Star class were Andrew Simpson and Iain Percy, trying to retain their

:17:06.:17:11.

title, but things not going according to plan. We all head

:17:11.:17:15.

there for an update. They lead by four points overnight... Eight

:17:15.:17:19.

points. It is not going according to plan. I can see Shirley on a

:17:19.:17:29.
:17:29.:17:31.

boat. We are going to join the Percy, four years of Olympic

:17:31.:17:35.

preparation, comes down to these final four minutes as they head

:17:35.:17:41.

down wind. They have a medal. The colour is not yet decided. Sweden

:17:41.:17:47.

have the advantage at the front. The Kiwis are in second place at

:17:47.:17:53.

the moment. Great Britain, left of picture, out on the left-hand side

:17:53.:17:59.

of the track. He had it looks good at the moment. It looks like they

:17:59.:18:03.

were able to lay the finish. They would not have to do any gybes.

:18:03.:18:08.

They are in a good position. At the They are in a good position. At the

:18:08.:18:12.

moment it is looking good for the Brits. Great Britain are up to

:18:12.:18:20.

fourth place. I'm holding on. It is not a straight line. Things could

:18:20.:18:30.
:18:30.:18:37.

change very quickly. This is far gold or silver? West Percy? He is

:18:37.:18:42.

spending far more time looking back. They are coming down towards the

:18:42.:18:48.

finish. They are on target for victory in the race, but they will

:18:48.:18:52.

not know if they are on target... It looks like they will win this

:18:52.:18:57.

race. They won't know which medal yet. It is the points scored during

:18:57.:19:05.

the week. Sweden win the race. 32 points for Sweden. New Zealand

:19:05.:19:15.
:19:15.:19:25.

finish second. Great Britain coming Germany. 44 5th four top 5th would

:19:25.:19:35.
:19:35.:19:36.

be OK. A we need an aerial shot. can't call that here. We can't call

:19:36.:19:46.
:19:46.:19:52.

Great Britain finished 8th and that was not enough. That final race

:19:52.:19:57.

scores double. Sweden win with 32 scores double. Sweden win with 32

:19:57.:20:07.
:20:07.:20:08.

A huge effort. You sailed a great regatta. Sometimes it can be so

:20:08.:20:15.

cruel. Yes, it feels it at the moment. We end up racing in

:20:15.:20:20.

ridiculous conditions at the end. We just got it wrong. It is pretty

:20:21.:20:27.

gutting. We felt we sailed a good week and feel a little rocked, but

:20:27.:20:32.

it is our fault. We will have to take it on the chin. He sailed so

:20:32.:20:39.

well all week. You must have been so confident today. You are never

:20:39.:20:44.

100% confident. It is -- it can be a lottery at times. We didn't get

:20:44.:20:50.

it right, we can't blame anyone else. He fair play to the Swedes,

:20:50.:20:55.

they had a great regatta and did a great job. So did the Brazilians.

:20:55.:20:59.

We are really frustrated. Sorry to everyone watching. We feel bad for

:20:59.:21:04.

you guys. We tried our hardest. hope you can take some consolation

:21:04.:21:09.

from the fact that what you have achieved over the last 15 or 20

:21:09.:21:13.

years has inspired not only a generation of sailors, but of

:21:13.:21:18.

sailing fans. There were 4,500 people cheering for you. Do you

:21:18.:21:23.

take comfort from that? Just coming past and getting the applause, we

:21:23.:21:28.

were hurting so much inside, but it makes it so much easier to feel

:21:28.:21:35.

that those guys are still happy for us. It meant so much. It will be a

:21:35.:21:40.

highlight of my life. Probably that only put a smile back on our face.

:21:40.:21:45.

Hard luck. We were so proud to watch that.

:21:45.:21:50.

A fine effort, particularly from Rob Walker doing the interviews on

:21:50.:21:56.

the boat's! Silver for them. Not long for Ben Ainslie in his attempt

:21:56.:21:59.

to become the most decorated sale ever in Olympic history. He is

:22:00.:22:05.

trying to win the Finn class and we will have coverage of VAT on BBC

:22:05.:22:12.

Three. He is known as Big Ben. There's a real atmosphere between

:22:12.:22:16.

these two. Ben Ainslie leads, he has overtaken Hogh-Christensen. He

:22:16.:22:20.

could become the greatest Olympic sailor of all time. Those guys had

:22:20.:22:27.

better watch out. The Dane has failed. Quite possibly the best

:22:27.:22:31.

race of all. Ben Ainslie has gone far out in front and he is now

:22:31.:22:37.

going to go for the Danish sailor. This puts a sequel going into the

:22:37.:22:43.

medal race. -- this puts us equal. It is a good position to be in. It

:22:43.:22:50.

will be fascinating on Sunday. There was some interchange there.

:22:50.:22:56.

He made a big mistake, I am angry. He did not want to make me angry.

:22:56.:23:00.

That is a great line! He just has to keep the Dane behind him and

:23:00.:23:06.

gold will be his. Full coverage of that on BBC Three. On BBC Two, the

:23:06.:23:10.

gymnastics has started and across the red button, you can select

:23:10.:23:15.

whichever sport you want to watch. On BBC One, we will concentrate on

:23:15.:23:20.

tennis. For Andy Murray, an instant shot at redemption. Four weeks ago

:23:20.:23:26.

to the day he lost to Roger Federer in the Wimbledon singles final. But

:23:26.:23:30.

the doubles has happened and Venus the doubles has happened and Venus

:23:30.:23:32.

and Serena Williams did successfully win gold. Faces match

:23:50.:24:00.
:24:00.:24:14.

Championship. Number two. -- championship point number two.

:24:14.:24:22.

Championship No. 74 Roger Federer! Fabulous first Wimbledon final for

:24:22.:24:27.

Andy Murray. He has done himself proud, and his nation. I was

:24:27.:24:32.

obviously very disappointed a few days afterwards. It wasn't NEC

:24:32.:24:35.

defeat for me. One that was always going to take a few days if not

:24:35.:24:40.

weeks to get over. Because as the Olympics was coming up, they gave

:24:40.:24:44.

me the motivation to get myself back in the gym and on the practice

:24:44.:24:49.

court and get myself ready. Overall, it was a good tournament. A lot of

:24:49.:24:55.

players would have taken the position I was in at the end. I'm

:24:55.:25:05.
:25:05.:25:12.

going to try this and it's not The speech was tough. I knew when I

:25:12.:25:18.

was walking up to the microphone that it was not going to be easy.

:25:18.:25:22.

In some ways it was nice having Roger there. He's been in that

:25:22.:25:30.

position before. He understands what it is like. Roger is 30 now.

:25:30.:25:36.

He is not bad for A30 year-old! It is one of those things. All

:25:36.:25:44.

athletes cry all the time, but most of the time you can hold it back.

:25:44.:25:49.

You can get into the locker room and let go of it there. But when it

:25:49.:25:54.

is the Wimbledon final and you have to stay for the ceremony, there's a

:25:54.:25:58.

good 15 minutes until you have to speak. That is right about the time

:25:58.:26:03.

you lose control of the emotions. I could not hold it back. Last of all

:26:03.:26:13.
:26:13.:26:26.

It is going to be a great match. We can now head from the Olympic Park,

:26:26.:26:34.

16 miles across the city to SW19. The players have stayed in

:26:34.:26:39.

Wimbledon. Murray is coming in from home. It is a very different

:26:39.:26:43.

Wimbledon. It was raining heavily eight -- heavily earlier, so the

:26:43.:26:47.

roof was shut for the women's doubles. Has it improved now? Sue

:26:47.:26:56.

Barker has a couple of familiar For Ruth is closed at the moment. -

:26:56.:27:00.

- for the roof is closed at the moment. But it will be opened in a

:27:00.:27:05.

few minutes. Good news for Andy Murray. It is Federer against

:27:05.:27:11.

Murray. Dewani to introduce these two? -- do I need danger Jews. We

:27:11.:27:18.

thought it would be a repeat of the Wimbledon final. In it makes both

:27:18.:27:23.

players play better. Since Roger Federer is the greatest player that

:27:23.:27:27.

ever lived, you would think it would help him. It did at Wimbledon

:27:27.:27:31.

with his serve. But Murray is playing better than he did at

:27:31.:27:35.

Wimbledon. That match against Djokovic was the best big-time

:27:35.:27:39.

match I've ever seen him play. I think the stars are aligned

:27:39.:27:46.

properly. Or am I just dreaming? agree! I felt if it was windy and

:27:46.:27:51.

maybe a bit cold, Murray would be happy. He would be. Federer's

:27:51.:27:56.

record indoors is phenomenal. You saw those first two sets in the

:27:56.:28:00.

Wimbledon final, they were outdoors and Andy was dominating. Federer

:28:00.:28:03.

did a great job in the last 10 minutes of the second set and broke

:28:03.:28:08.

serve and got on level terms. They shut up the roof and he went up a

:28:08.:28:13.

gear. Today has got a different feel for top at Wimbledon with a

:28:13.:28:16.

more traditional Championship crowd, there was a lot of support for

:28:16.:28:21.

Federer. I think this is more of a Davis Cup feel and the support for

:28:21.:28:26.

Andy will be phenomenal. That could make the difference. That will be

:28:26.:28:29.

key. At Wimbledon, although the majority was for Murray, it will be

:28:29.:28:36.

even more so today. They are to down polite at Wimbledon! There's a

:28:36.:28:46.
:28:46.:28:48.

difference today. If he starts as well as he did at Wimbledon... It

:28:48.:28:55.

is back to best-of-five and he has never beaten Roger over five sets.

:28:55.:29:00.

Federer knows what he's doing. about the semi-finals? They were

:29:00.:29:06.

extraordinary in different ways. Federer, the longest three-set

match in the open era, 19-17 in the third set. 4 1/2 hours in the

:29:12.:29:17.

context of a five-set match is pretty long. It will have felt

:29:17.:29:20.

longer in a three-set scenario because they're so much more

:29:21.:29:25.

emotional energy. He served to stay in the match 10 times. I'm sure it

:29:25.:29:29.

would have taken something out of him. You saw his reaction at the

:29:29.:29:33.

end when he kissed the Swiss flag on his shirt. I haven't seen that

:29:33.:29:38.

much from Federer. It shows how much this means to him. He has won

:29:38.:29:42.

Wimbledon seven times, but he has never won Olympic gold. The

:29:42.:29:45.

pressure on Murray in a Wimbledon final is probably greater than the

:29:45.:29:49.

Olympic final. With the way he has played, that match against Djokovic

:29:49.:29:54.

was incredible. He was so aggressive, he was looking to

:29:54.:29:58.

dictate the play, his attitude was fantastic. More of the same and he

:29:58.:30:04.

has a great chance. It looks like the old Murray. He was getting

:30:04.:30:08.

upset with himself, but in this case it seemed to help him play

:30:08.:30:13.

better. There was a couple of moments, the back, the ankle, where

:30:13.:30:17.

he stepped it up. I've watched him play a lot and that seemed to be

:30:17.:30:20.

the hardest he has ever hit the ball. If he's playing with that

:30:20.:30:24.

confidence, he will need to do that. I was amazed with Roger, even

:30:24.:30:30.

though he wasn't playing his best, that his defensive skills on this

:30:30.:30:40.
:30:40.:30:44.

Murray said he sat down with his coach, watched that again, the

:30:44.:30:48.

final, and said the only thing he would do differently pores over a

:30:48.:30:56.

shot selection. I think he could use the court, if he Follies, that

:30:56.:31:06.
:31:06.:31:07.

would be the one difference. -- volleys. He is serving was an

:31:07.:31:10.

unbelievable against Djokavic. There were a few moments where he

:31:10.:31:17.

was getting frustrated, four service games where he had to save

:31:17.:31:25.

break point, and he came out with some huge serving. He certainly

:31:25.:31:29.

needs a good serving day-to-day. ripple of applause behind us

:31:29.:31:35.

because the roof is opening. The sun is shining, it is very hot in

:31:35.:31:42.

here so the players will be happy. It is very warm in here. To open

:31:42.:31:47.

the roof and get the elements in, it doesn't make it so easy to play

:31:47.:31:51.

so aggressively, so close to the line, which is what Roger Federer

:31:51.:31:57.

likes to do. It is a gold medal they are playing

:31:57.:32:02.

for. Everyone wondered, do the tennis players embraced the

:32:02.:32:07.

Olympics like other sports, and I think they have. I wouldn't have

:32:07.:32:11.

played here because I thought it was a joke because the

:32:11.:32:18.

professionals were in the Olympics. But now, everybody is. When Agassi

:32:18.:32:27.

won in Atlanta or, more of the top players started. I think they

:32:27.:32:32.

should change the rules, this should be given the same importance

:32:32.:32:40.

as a Grand Slam, it should be counted as a Grand Slam. I think

:32:40.:32:44.

they are heading in the right direction. We will see what the

:32:44.:32:49.

players say, if it means the same as Wimbledon. Even Andy Murray has

:32:49.:32:56.

said this is as important. Definitely. The Olympics is the

:32:56.:33:03.

pinnacle of sport. To have points in the Olympics is fine. White is

:33:03.:33:12.

it 750 points, went a Grand Slam is much more. But I don't take it will

:33:12.:33:17.

detract from the intensity of the match. What do you think of

:33:17.:33:22.

Wimbledon? But all of the kids running around? I absolutely love

experience for me, hopefully a stepping-stone to Glasgow 2014, and

in shape, to keep one eye on what Paula Radcliffe was doing, just in

mind. At the same time, and was thinking about doing another

marathon. It is a funny balance, thinking about both at the same

the opportunity to come here, I am really pleased, as Phil like I have

silly things, water stations. Today, a feel like I have learned a lot of

things. Can I just say, thank you to everybody for their support, out

:43:12.:43:22.
:43:22.:43:26.

for the second time in its history, the Olympic tennis events. Back in

:43:26.:43:32.

1908, it was down the road. This stadium, Centre court, not open

:43:32.:43:37.

until 1922. What a great success it has been. Andy Murray has another

:43:37.:43:43.

chance to collect one of these titles. No question, the Olympic

:43:43.:43:49.

tennis event has gone up in terms of its standing. All the talk of

:43:49.:43:53.

what is it doing? By big it is up there with a Grand Slam. It is

:43:53.:44:00.

strange how it has done it, in one go. It became a full medal sport

:44:00.:44:10.
:44:10.:44:14.

back in 1988. There was a Swiss gold-medallist in Barcelona. Agassi,

:44:14.:44:24.
:44:24.:44:25.

a winner of all four majors and an Olympic gold. He won in a canter.

:44:25.:44:30.

The Nadal one in Beijing. So, the last medallist for Great Britain,

:44:30.:44:39.

before Andy Murray and Laura Robson who will both win medals today, is

:44:39.:44:47.

alongside May, it is Tim Henman. Good afternoon. Good afternoon.

:44:47.:44:52.

can't wait for this. There is certainly a feeling that this could

:44:52.:44:59.

be Andy Murray's time. It does have a very different feel, the whole

:44:59.:45:03.

tennis event has had a different feeling from the Championships. A

:45:03.:45:09.

different crowd. In the Wimbledon final, there was even support. This

:45:09.:45:19.
:45:19.:45:25.

Djokovic, world No. 2, there was on Friday night. Now the world No. 1

:45:25.:45:30.

faces him once again. We've seen and heard some amazing things in

:45:30.:45:34.

the stadium over the years. Borg and McEnroe in 1980, and

:45:34.:45:40.

extraordinary tie-break. Boris Becker in 1985 as a 17-year-old. I

:45:40.:45:46.

remember Ivanisevic netting a backhand volley in 1992 at 4-5.

:45:46.:45:52.

That was to lose that match. Agassi winning here for the first time and

:45:52.:45:58.

falling to the ground. Ivanisevic against Rafter in 2001, Federer and

:45:58.:46:04.

Nadal in 2008. But I've never heard a noise such as when Murray broke

:46:04.:46:11.

Djokovic's served on Friday night. It was amazing. A cacophony. You

:46:11.:46:17.

are right, Tim, this will be on his side, the support will largely be

:46:17.:46:22.

on Murray's side. A normal crowd would be slightly more balanced.

:46:22.:46:26.

There's been so much momentum. The momentum has been building at this

:46:26.:46:31.

event. When you think about momentum in terms of GDP, it has

:46:31.:46:35.

been fantastic. Murray will be aware of that. He is a big sports

:46:35.:46:39.

fan, he will have seen what was going on at the athletics, rowing

:46:39.:46:46.

and cycling. He wants to win a gold medal. Greg Rutherford last night,

:46:46.:46:53.

unbelievable. Jessica Ennis, Mo Farah, unbelievable scenes. We are

will let you play. King Bladud's Pigs in Bath won the gold in

working his way into this. Isn't it to his great credit that after the

blow he took by losing that Wimbledon final that he can come

back and do this again? Puts himself imposition all the time.

:58:22.:58:27.

Absolutely. I don't think many of us would have questioned his

character, but it was a great opportunity for him to have the

of his first serves in. He likes serving to Murray, for some reason.

We'd call that a good miss. He is disappointed he missed his shot but

This one was close. It was either outside edge or just out. At 218

Another one. That is the way. Good coaching, Andrew. If in doubt,

what he did against Djokovic when he was trouble, he served his way

set match, one set is good, 2-0 would be even better. Andy Murray

is playing clean tennis at the moment. Wasn't sure whether playing

there's Mixed Doubles matches on the rest day after Friday night

:21:48.:21:52.

would be a perfect preparation. Mentally it would have been quite

:21:52.:21:56.

good for him. It was almost like a good distraction to have, otherwise

he would have been practicing a little bit, a lot of media things,

after the forehand down the line. For Andy Murray, two points from

:24:38.:24:48.
:24:48.:24:53.

the set. He just gobbled that first serve up. 37 minutes played, Andy

:24:53.:25:03.
:25:03.:25:17.

He has got it! It is not one-way traffic, but he is the dominant

player here, Andy Murray the first set, 6-2.

CLARE BALDING: If you are trying to remember the first set to hit the

has got four gold medals. All half his boats carry the same name, Rita,

he is a one-woman man, he has been speaking to rob Walker. You are the

latest -- greatest Olympic sailor in history. Yes, it is times like

:25:58.:26:01.

this you are supposed to have something clever to say but I am

:26:01.:26:06.

speechless. It has been a really tough week, amazing competition,

:26:06.:26:11.

especially from Jonas, but this was the time to do it, at home in front

:26:11.:26:17.

of a home crowd. I am just so glad for all the people who have

supported me over the years, my family, sponsors, all the people

:26:22.:26:31.

love come here and all the people supporting across the country.

Listening to a crowd like that makes a difference. You really had

be decoyed -- glorious finish? After six races I was in a bit of

:26:50.:26:54.

trouble and had to turn things around. Thankfully added that and

:26:54.:27:00.

got it right when it counted in the middle race. I cannot believe it.

:27:00.:27:07.

This course is one of the harvest - - hardest I have ever sailed on. I

:27:07.:27:11.

do want to go through anything like that again in my life. CLARE

:27:11.:27:15.

BALDING: He just is a great man under pressure. There was the

:27:15.:27:19.

silver medal earlier in the sailing for Iain Percy and Andrew Simpson.

:27:19.:27:24.

What will happen here? It could yet be gold, it will be at the very

:27:24.:27:27.

least silver, Andy Murray has started fantastically well taking

:27:27.:27:37.
:27:37.:27:43.

the first set 6-2. Let's join a Tim Straight from the sailing to Centre

:27:43.:27:49.

Court. There is a sense something is a little different here today.

:27:49.:27:54.

Most people would pick Andy Murray for this match, and he has made a

:27:54.:28:04.
:28:04.:28:19.

Unlike all the other men's single matches here that have been best of

:28:19.:28:29.
:28:29.:28:30.

three sets, this is the best of We are not too far into this match

:28:30.:28:40.
:28:40.:28:44.

Sport is about staying in the present tense and Murray played a

:28:44.:28:50.

brilliant first set. He has got to start all over again at the

:28:50.:29:00.
:29:00.:29:27.

beginning of this second set, hold Late call. Federer is challenging.

:29:27.:29:37.
:29:37.:29:57.

I cannot remember seeing Federer Been watching both of these players

:29:57.:30:01.

throughout their careers and at the moment there is only one person out

:30:01.:30:04.

there in terms of really engaging in this match and that is Andy

:30:04.:30:12.

Murray. The first couple of games where key, Andy Murray held serve

:30:12.:30:16.

in the first service game, got the early break, five games in a row,

:30:16.:30:22.

he wants to keep his momentum, keep the pressure on Federer. He is

:30:22.:30:26.

going for a third break of serve in a row against Federer on Centre

:30:26.:30:36.
:30:36.:30:39.

They do is going to have to decide whether he wants to be out there

:30:39.:30:42.

and grind and give blood for this, otherwise the match is going to

:30:42.:30:47.

slip away. Nothing to taken for granted with Federer, he could slip

:30:47.:30:57.
:30:57.:31:35.

into deer any time but this is Again, Murray has to do a good job

:31:35.:31:40.

in focusing on his game plan, worrying about his game. Must not

:31:40.:31:44.

be too concerned about what is going on with Federer, you want to

:31:54.:32:18.

But is not going to do much for his mood. A dead net cord. That is

:32:19.:32:24.

three more break points for a 6th game in a row for the man with the

:32:24.:32:28.

momentum, Andy Murray. An acknowledgment, a quick sorry, but

:32:28.:32:38.
:32:38.:32:44.

Is a tough challenge? Murray is challenging the call, or maybe it

:32:44.:32:54.
:32:54.:33:10.

No, there is another one! Someone is looking after him! Maybe this is

:33:10.:33:20.

those big serves again. OK, two big serves. He has got that break,

:34:52.:35:02.

What a second serve. That thing had some weight behind it. It was

body there, not giving Federer an opportunity to swing at the ball.

This is mature play. A vital little money battle in the context of this

:41:20.:41:37.

And reward again for a first serve Murray electing to stay back on the

The longer this game goes, the more important is in the context of this

That was sharper. That will be a big surprise to Roger Federer. This

was brilliant. There was no room down there, that it didn't exist,

that shot. That is it, he has got to serve an ace and sit down. What

You never, ever want to tempt fate but you have to say this is looking

vast amount of experience, Murray down the other end, Murray resisted.

I am sure. Not sure if we will see It is the right idea from Federer,

:59:47.:59:51.

just not with the same conviction. Normally when he gets round that

:59:51.:59:56.

forehand he will really go for it, that was more of a push. He has not

There is no good thinking about the consequences of the match. How much

:01:22.:01:25.

conscious thought is there in a situation like this? It seems he is

on automatic pilot. He is, he has a game plan, executing it well.

Process, not outcome. He has to play this next point as if it is

epic. Del Potro has been in the bronze-medal match against Novak

Djokovic. As we confirm that Murray took the second set 6-1, this is

first medal for Argentina of these Games, hence his celebrations. If

her title. The men's 100 Mater final is at 9:50pm. I have one word

:12:33.:12:40.

of warning and a desire hearing of a heavy storm has been passing from

:12:40.:12:43.

the west across the country. It is around the Coventry and Nuneaton

:12:43.:12:46.

area and you want to hope it does not come and do anything to upset

:12:46.:12:51.

this match because it is all too good at the moment. Let's go back

to the commentators. -- let's go Sweet and efficient from Roger

:14:19.:14:25.

Federer. It is the easiest game he has had this entire match on serve

:14:25.:14:29.

as he tries to get something going. He is two sets down in this Olympic

:14:29.:14:33.

final. Most recently he was two sets down at Wimbledon on this

:14:33.:14:37.

court and he beat Julian Benneteau of fans. I believe that was a third

:14:37.:14:43.

round match. What is the mentality when you are two sets down, how do

:14:43.:14:46.

you go about your task? Federer has to have a similar thought process.

:14:46.:14:50.

He knows there is a long way to go in this match and he has to start

:14:50.:14:54.

all over again at the beginning of the third set and that is the same

:14:54.:15:00.

for Murray. He would certainly like the foundation that Maria has built,

:15:00.:15:03.

being up two sets to love, here. As we saw with that match against

:15:04.:15:08.

Benneteau, things can turn around quickly so Murray has to be on his

:15:08.:15:18.
:15:18.:15:27.

We sought the statistics at the end of the second set, Federer had

:15:27.:15:37.
:15:37.:15:37.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 85 seconds

:15:37.:17:07.

A good start for Andy Murray on serve in the third set. Can he

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 85 seconds

:17:17.:18:52.

continue to put pressure on the And again, it is the right idea,

:18:52.:19:02.
:19:02.:19:02.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 85 seconds

:19:02.:20:26.

trying to impose himself on the Fair weather at the moment.

:20:26.:20:30.

Beforehand people were saying if the roof closed they fancied

:20:30.:20:38.

Federer, and if it was open, Andy Murray. That was a popular

:20:38.:20:43.

sentiment. With Federer's style of play it looking to beat so

:20:43.:20:48.

aggressive and going so close to the lines it is better if there are

:20:48.:20:55.

no elements, there is no breeze in the Centre Court arena. But right

:20:55.:21:05.
:21:05.:21:05.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 85 seconds

:21:05.:22:43.

now with the platform Murray has Andy Murray is doing a good job of

:22:43.:22:48.

keeping his emotions in check. He would be his highest achievement on

:22:48.:22:55.

court in his life following so much disappointment, largely at the

:22:55.:23:05.
:23:05.:23:19.

hands of Federer, and Djokovic and This young man he was prepared at

:23:19.:23:24.

the age of 15 to live overseas in Spain and grind it out, learned his

:23:24.:23:31.

craft, worked so hard in the ensuing 10 years, specimen

:23:31.:23:41.
:23:41.:23:41.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 85 seconds

:23:41.:24:21.

Look at that, even from 8, 9 feet behind the baseline he is able to

:24:21.:24:26.

get the power and penetration to get through Federer. 15-30, an

:24:26.:24:36.
:24:36.:24:50.

And that is long. Andy Murray has got the ball down to Federer's feet.

:24:50.:24:57.

And he now has the chance to really land a heavy blow on Federer. Two

:24:57.:25:07.
:25:07.:25:07.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 85 seconds

:25:07.:25:59.

And every time Federer throws some heat down to Andy Murray, he

:25:59.:26:04.

returns it again and again and again. It is almost as if all of

:26:04.:26:09.

these defeats he has suffered at the hands of these star names over

:26:09.:26:13.

the years, he has tried to be part of the big show, and you are seeing

:26:14.:26:18.

the moment of his arrival, quite thrilling to watch. Especially for

:26:18.:26:24.

Rob on the left, and Matt and Kimberly in the middle. Very glad

:26:24.:26:31.

to see his mum and dad both here today. We thought the other day

:26:31.:26:36.

against Djokovic he played the best tennis we have ever seen him play.

:26:36.:26:41.

Certainly in a big match against one of the top three, if you like.

:26:42.:26:45.

Andy Murray has really continued where he has left off, given

:26:46.:26:49.

Federer no breathing space. The last break point, they are hitting

:26:50.:26:53.

from Murray is so clean he never really let Federer get on top of

:26:53.:27:02.

the point, he had that opportunity, I drove the backhand card -- he

:27:02.:27:12.
:27:12.:27:12.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 85 seconds

:27:12.:28:00.

drove the backhand hard across 15,000 people here, 14,000 of them

:28:00.:28:07.

going, yes, every time he wins a point. And he can begin to see the

:28:07.:28:17.
:28:17.:28:28.

finishing line at this point. He Federer is going to beat 31 years

:28:28.:28:34.

of age of Wednesday. A long way from Centre Court. It is almost as

:28:34.:28:43.

if he loves to be anywhere but here right now. Away from Murray's

:28:43.:28:53.
:28:53.:29:27.

Look at where he is in the court, he is inside the baseline. The

:29:27.:29:31.

power sending everything short away. Yet to drop a point on serve in

:29:31.:29:41.
:29:41.:29:41.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 85 seconds

:29:41.:30:24.

It is unbelievable, you don't hear that at Wimbledon, do you, at the

:30:24.:30:34.
:30:34.:31:03.

Murray has got to go in for the Well. This is... Well, let's not

:31:04.:31:09.

say anything! Let me just say Laura Robson has picked a pretty good

:31:10.:31:19.
:31:20.:31:20.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 85 seconds

:31:20.:33:44.

And it is just the sweetest touch, isn't it? 17 times, he has won this

:33:45.:33:52.

sport's most important titles. So he is not a wait until he is away.

:33:52.:34:02.
:34:02.:34:32.

-- he is not away, until he is a Hat softer Federer on this occasion,

:34:32.:34:38.

15-40 down, they were virtual match points. Federer hangs on Murray was

:34:38.:34:48.
:34:48.:34:52.

CLARE BALDING: Andy Murray playing sensationally well. The news on the

:34:52.:34:56.

Storm, by the way, it is heading north of London, so we can stop

worrying about that. On BBC Two, gymnastics coverage. Great Britain

are guaranteed a medal on the pommel horse because Max Whitlock

COMMENTATOR: 6-2, 6-1, 4-3, Andy Murray, world number four playing

:35:49.:35:53.

for Team GB against the world number one, the Swiss, Roger

:35:53.:35:59.

Federer. If he can hold two service games, he will be the Olympic gold

:36:00.:36:09.
:36:10.:36:31.

He has brought the Federer dancing feet to a standstill over these

:36:32.:36:36.

last couple of hours or so. Has Federer got anything left to resist

:36:36.:36:46.
:36:46.:37:06.

It is those baseline exchanges that Maria has won time and time again.

:37:06.:37:12.

He is so solid from the back of the court. He forced Federer into the

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 85 seconds

Absolutely incredible serving from Andy Murray, 16 straight points on

:38:48.:38:54.

It doesn't matter who you of, or what has gone on before, when you

:38:54.:38:57.

serve for the biggest victory of your career, you are going to be a

little bit tight. Federer stirred - - serving to stay in this match.

:39:13.:39:13.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 85 seconds

:39:13.:40:14.

Whatever happens, Murray will serve OK. We will see what happens now.

:40:14.:40:19.

How many times he has been denied by these boys. Now he can put one

:40:19.:40:23.

over them. Ever since he pulled on that Team GB shirt, he has been

:40:23.:40:30.

like a man possessed this week. Unbelievable will power. All the

:40:30.:40:34.

training, everything he has done, all the processes he had six gone

:40:34.:40:40.

through to make itself what it is. It comes down to this game.

:40:40.:40:44.

certainly does. The biggest service game of his life and has he has

:40:44.:40:48.

done such a good job in the whole match, he has to break it down one

:40:48.:40:52.

point at a time. A clear picture in his mind of the way he wants to

:40:52.:41:02.
:41:02.:41:18.

play each point. Stand up to the A couple of free points on serve

:41:18.:41:23.

would not go amiss. There were tears after the Wimbledon final a

:41:23.:41:26.

few weeks ago, may be different tears in a few minutes time. We

:41:26.:41:36.
:41:36.:41:47.

A perfect length on the forehand from Murray. There is a challenge

:41:47.:41:53.

from Federer, a linked challenge, but he has that right. It did look

:41:53.:42:03.
:42:03.:42:36.

good. Come on, on the line, get in! Just in case you thought Federer

:42:36.:42:41.

was going anywhere, he clocked that forehand down the line. He has

:42:41.:42:48.

missed those on countless occasions. Typical that he would make it now.

:42:48.:42:58.
:42:58.:43:04.

This is the time when Murray really Yes! A good call, Tim. A hundred

:43:04.:43:13.

and 35 miles an hour. Come on, maybe he doesn't need a ground

:43:13.:43:23.
:43:23.:43:39.

stroke here. That would be fine. Give him that ball back. He wants

:43:40.:43:49.
:43:50.:44:18.

It is a golden triumph for Andy Murray! Gold for Team GB. He

:44:18.:44:28.

finished off like the champion that What a response from 28 days ago.

He is going to do a Pat Cash. He is off. Let's see if he can find a

a youngster. Agents, friends, his father, delighted to see him here.

:45:45.:45:50.

Paul Hutchins, the team manager, his mother. In the meantime,

applause for Roger Federer, a great champion he will return. Blown off

the court today in less than two hours, you couldn't have picked it.

:46:03.:46:07.

Laura, more hugs for her later because he goes for gold with her

:46:07.:46:17.
:46:17.:46:20.

in the Mixed Doubles. And that is I hope he doesn't twist his ankle

:46:20.:46:30.
:46:30.:46:35.

before that Mixed Doubles final. We have all been put through the

:46:35.:46:41.

wringer. Andy Murray's four Grand Slam championship finals he has

:46:41.:46:51.

faced. He is going to enjoy this as much as he felt they heard from the

:46:51.:46:56.

losses he has suffered. What a fantastic performance from Andy

:46:56.:47:06.

Murray. 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 on the Centre Court at Wimbledon to take apart

:47:06.:47:10.

Roger Federer. Unbelievable performance. I think he wants more

:47:10.:47:15.

this afternoon. How about a double gold? We will see later on. Singles

:47:15.:47:25.
:47:25.:47:32.

He will sign a few autographs, then maybe an interview or two to be

:47:32.:47:36.

done down there. Some American television, the world will have

:47:36.:47:43.

watched this, it is a global sport, 44 nations represented. Andy Murray

:47:43.:47:52.

comes out on top. Are you OK this time?

:47:52.:47:57.

I feel much better. Definitely easier winning in the final then

:47:57.:48:01.

losing. I played a really good match, the conditions were very

:48:01.:48:07.

winded but I did well. You did more than well. Where do you put that in

:48:07.:48:12.

great victories? In it is number one. It is the biggest one of my

:48:12.:48:16.

life. This week has been incredible, so far. Had a lot of fun, the

:48:16.:48:22.

support has been amazing, one more match to go. It has been

:48:22.:48:26.

unbelievable. The crowd really has played their part, they have been

:48:26.:48:31.

like an extra player. Unbelievable. It is not just here, all of the

:48:31.:48:34.

events I have watched, I watched the athletics last night, it was

:48:34.:48:43.

amazing. Did it inspire you? It was amazing. The way Mo Farah one, I do

:48:43.:48:48.

400 metres repetitions in my training, and when I am completely

:48:48.:48:53.

fresh I can run it in 57 seconds and his last lap after 9,600 metres

:48:53.:49:00.

was 53 seconds. Unbelievable fitness. It gave me some momentum

:49:00.:49:09.

coming in. You are a Olympic champion. Amazing. I didn't expect

:49:09.:49:14.

that at the start of the week. I had a chance of going deep into the

:49:14.:49:18.

tournament, a bit tired after Wimbledon and playing in the Mixed

:49:18.:49:21.

Doubles as well but I felt so fresh. On the court today I didn't feel

:49:21.:49:28.

nervous, really, at all apart from the beginning of the match.

:49:28.:49:33.

Everyone was so worried about your after Wimbledon and said how will

:49:33.:49:37.

you respond? This is how you respond. It is worth it. I have had

:49:37.:49:43.

a lot of tough losses in my career. This was the best way to come back

:49:43.:49:46.

from a Wimbledon final, I will never forget it. You played a

:49:47.:49:51.

brilliant match, you thrilled everybody here and at home, and

:49:51.:49:59.

enjoy the ceremony, and the Mixed CLARE BALDING: You can hear the

:49:59.:50:05.

emotion in his voice and the fact he cannot get quite a ferret. He

:50:06.:50:10.

was a reaction in the Olympic Park, thousands of people gathered in the

:50:10.:50:14.

sunshine to watch Andy Murray win the gold medal in men's tennis.

:50:14.:50:22.

That is great Britain's first gold medal in tennis since 1908 when

:50:22.:50:27.

which she won it. This is Andy Murray to reaction to his biggest

:50:27.:50:35.

win of his life. 6-2, 6-1, 6-4, not often you see that in terms of

:50:35.:50:42.

Roger Federer's career losses. Murray has a great track record in

:50:42.:50:45.

the best of three-set matches against Federer, the first time he

:50:45.:50:51.

has beaten him in best-of-five. Let's go back to Centre Court and

:50:51.:50:55.

in the Mixed Doubles sown. Sue Barker not able to do interviews

:50:55.:50:58.

on-court as we would do at Wimbledon. This is the Olympics.

:50:58.:51:03.

From the reaction of Andy Murray you know how different it is. Tim

:51:03.:51:10.

Henman knows what it feels like, he won a silver medal of years back.

:51:10.:51:14.

It is a shame for the crowd they didn't get to hear from the new

:51:14.:51:19.

champion. You won a silver medal, you know what it is like to be at

:51:19.:51:24.

the Olympics. To do it in that manner was incredible. Absolutely

:51:24.:51:29.

amazing. Everybody has been talking about where their the brief would

:51:29.:51:33.

be closed and to his favour, and I thought after the performance at

:51:33.:51:37.

Wimbledon I thought Federer was the slight favourite but to play the

:51:37.:51:42.

greatest player in history of hour sport on his favourite court, and

:51:42.:51:46.

to win in three sets in less than two hours, unbelievable. I was

:51:46.:51:50.

watching the athletic as cycling yesterday. There is so much

:51:50.:51:56.

momentum in the British team. He has really taking advantage of that,

:51:56.:52:00.

the best performers I have seen in such a big match for him. --

:52:00.:52:04.

performance. He has got the chance to go for more gold this afternoon.

:52:04.:52:09.

It is incredible. I just said, we wondered how he would respond after

:52:09.:52:13.

that is by the end of the Wimbledon final, he has answered everybody by

:52:13.:52:17.

coming back even better. I think he learnt from that experience. The

:52:17.:52:22.

first couple of games where the key. He was able to get out of trouble,

:52:22.:52:28.

a couple of games went with serve and then to having to in the third

:52:28.:52:38.
:52:38.:52:43.

set, that doesn't have done t Federer -- 2-2. It is unbelievable.

:52:43.:52:50.

It is amazing. He thoroughly deserves it. So may -- so much talk

:52:50.:52:56.

about the Grand Slam finals, an amazing achievement. And again, 2-0

:52:56.:53:03.

in the second set. Hello, what did you make of it? I thought he would

:53:03.:53:08.

have won a little bit easier. I think after everything he has been

:53:08.:53:11.

think after everything he has been through, every year, this guy knows

:53:11.:53:17.

all about that, I feel bad for you. I had silver and now he has got

:53:17.:53:23.

gold. It is unbelievable to feel like you could play here in London,

:53:23.:53:30.

at Wimbledon. That is where an Olympic gold is like a Slam. When

:53:30.:53:33.

they decide the next had the will be the valve -- the same value

:53:33.:53:38.

moving forward. We have had the fortune of had the tournament here.

:53:38.:53:42.

Andy Murray got inspired watching the athletics, cycling. You have

:53:42.:53:45.

been at the Olympic Park and you know what it means, great tennis is

:53:45.:53:49.

part of it. I keep saying this is my first one, loving every minute

:53:49.:53:53.

of it. I will go to about seven different events for next week.

:53:53.:54:00.

Without a doubt, if you look at tennis, Agassi got inspired,

:54:01.:54:05.

Sampras, that lifts people of. Magnified that way you get an

:54:05.:54:11.

Olympics where everybody is talking about your country, I remember I

:54:11.:54:15.

saw he spent the night in the village one night, and we are

:54:15.:54:18.

spoilt, tennis players, we don't realise how great we have it, we

:54:18.:54:22.

can make anything at all those other athletes who get them moment

:54:22.:54:26.

in the sun, financially the rewards are not there because they do it

:54:26.:54:30.

because it is the Olympics. For us to be part of that, people want to

:54:30.:54:34.

take pictures with the tennis players, eight or nine players

:54:34.:54:38.

actually carried their flags for the respective countries so I am

:54:38.:54:43.

starting to think, I wish I had played. As far as he goes, the way

:54:43.:54:47.

he has played here and the manner in which she has beaten Djokovic

:54:47.:54:53.

and Federer, he has got to dig a lot away. No doubt about it. When

:54:53.:54:57.

London won the pit, all Federer talk about the last four years was

:54:57.:55:02.

wanting to have the opportunity of playing Olympic tennis at Wimbledon.

:55:02.:55:05.

Probably was thinking in the back of his mind to win a gold medal in

:55:05.:55:09.

singles. For Andy Murray to beat Djokovic in the semi-finals there

:55:09.:55:14.

Federer in the final is unbelievable achievement. A huge

:55:14.:55:18.

moment, a huge stepping stone in his career. There's four Grand Slam

:55:18.:55:24.

finals he has lost would have been so hard to take an tears of

:55:24.:55:27.

disappointment, but to see him out there winning in straight sets is

:55:27.:55:31.

incredible. A long time since I have seen Federer so shell-shocked.

:55:31.:55:36.

The first time in a long time where he looked his age and he just

:55:36.:55:41.

didn't know what to do which is pretty hard. Djokovic has won

:55:41.:55:45.

Australia, Nadal won the French, Roger won Wimbledon, Andy Murray

:55:45.:55:51.

has won the Olympics, it is all up for grabs in the US Open, and then

:55:51.:55:54.

come to the O2 Arena in late November, could Andy Murray be

:55:54.:55:59.

ranked No. 1 at the end of the Year? Is that conceivable? There

:55:59.:56:05.

was a dream for Andy Murray. said at the beginning of the year

:56:05.:56:08.

for the London games, this is what he wanted to do and came here and

as a family and the joy will be as well. A salute from the other men.

:01:27.:01:32.

They take medals at the London Olympics 2012 and now they will

:01:32.:01:36.

pose for the shots that will go around the world. It is the single

:01:36.:01:43.

shot of Andy Murray which will surely be viewed the most because

:01:43.:01:50.

this is a triumph which has been long in the coming. He can relax

:01:50.:01:55.

and enjoy the rest of the Olympic Games, which he so adores now. Safe

:01:55.:01:59.

and secure in the knowledge that he can win at the very highest level.

:01:59.:02:03.

There is no weakness. All the doubters who said there is a

:02:03.:02:07.

problem, he can't do it, he can't walk through the door, it is

:02:07.:02:17.
:02:17.:02:26.

nonsense! There is no room for And one senses that after this

:02:26.:02:31.

victory, there could be so much more to come, but that is for

:02:41.:02:44.

another day. He must revel in this, Nobody but the competitors in the

:02:45.:02:51.

Olympic Games truly can understand what they go through, what steps

:02:51.:02:54.

they have to addicted within themselves, what inner strength

:02:54.:03:00.

they have to find to produce their ultimate performances. But it takes

:03:00.:03:07.

years. It is not success which just arrives overnight. There is no such

:03:07.:03:17.
:03:17.:03:27.

They are very big gold medals, this year, almost? -- aren't they? The

:03:28.:03:33.

most important success of his career. And perhaps a launch pad

:03:33.:03:40.

for so much more, now that he has claimed that first victory at this

:03:40.:03:49.

level. Roger Federer stays as the world's number-one tennis player

:03:49.:03:54.

and the tennis world will regather in a few weeks, for New York City.

:03:54.:03:59.

But as far as Olympic tennis is concerned, well, it has gone from

:03:59.:04:02.

strength to strength this weekend you can see the commitment of the

:04:02.:04:08.

players, what that shows you about what they think about the Olympic

:04:18.:04:54.

Members of the ground staff there. The person in charge has been here

:04:54.:05:00.

23 years. They had to prepare the ground and they did a grand job.

:05:00.:05:04.

Centre Court has taken a hammering and so have all the courts in use.

:05:04.:05:10.

But just as they have been resilient, so too has Andy Murray.

Tennis has made a valuable contribution to the medal table as

far as Team GB are concerned and there is more to come to date and

more Andy Murray and it is going to be a fascinating match, as he plays

with such confidence with Laura Robson against Max Mirnyi and

concerned from Centre Court. Serena Williams, double gold, singles and

pairs. Gold for Andy Murray and Great Britain. What a fitting place

:06:28.:06:33.

to see his greatest triumph and Sue Bob thanks very much, and it,

:06:33.:06:39.

that was amazing, a proud, proud moment. One he will never forget?

Definitely. It is incredible, the Olympic spirit. It is is are seeing

a podium on the Centre Court of Wimbledon and Andy going up there,

getting gold. He looked like he was in a state of shock but hopefully

it can sinking quickly because he has more business to do this

:06:55.:06:59.

afternoon. We were saying, it is the man at with which she has

:06:59.:07:02.

played this tournament and the spirit, he looked a different

:07:02.:07:07.

person? You know, because we talked a lot of towns about getting the

:07:07.:07:10.

crowd in full tonight think it made a big difference and it bumped him

:07:11.:07:17.

up. That's six two game, a couple of times he could have lost it, the

:07:17.:07:20.

Crown will -- the crowd willed him on after a couple of mistakes he

:07:21.:07:25.

did not think he should make. He started feeding of it. This could

:07:25.:07:30.

be an argument for him playing mixed doubles that Major's because

:07:30.:07:33.

he seemed to really enjoy it out there. We are going to pause

:07:33.:07:42.

because I think Roger is coming in. A great effort. Hello, Roger. You

:07:42.:07:46.

came up against an inspired opponent today? Yes, he played very

:07:46.:07:51.

well. He was better, much better than I was today. But still, I am

:07:51.:07:55.

very happy with the silver. It was a tough tournament from start to

:07:55.:07:59.

finish. I had a very emotional tournament from the first round,

:07:59.:08:06.

the quarters, the semis, so maybe I was drained. I was left emotional

:08:06.:08:10.

in the early rounds but nevertheless, I don't think I

:08:10.:08:16.

played too bad in the finals but things did not go my weight and

:08:17.:08:20.

Andy was confident, made good decisions. It is unfortunate but

:08:20.:08:29.

still a great day for me. It was an emotional semi-final but how key

:08:29.:08:34.

was that to nil game in the second question he was up a break already.

:08:34.:08:36.

You had so many break points already come it could have swung

:08:37.:08:41.

it? We had the same amount of break points but he converted that many

:08:41.:08:44.

more. I did not convert any. That is not good enough to win a finals

:08:44.:08:49.

like that. I really hope to with the best-of-five sets I would get

:08:49.:08:55.

my teeth into the match but I felt I was slow in the corner. Some

:08:55.:09:01.

wrong decisions from time to time. That does not pay off in the finals.

:09:01.:09:05.

Andy looked like he was never doubting himself, he had a clear

:09:05.:09:08.

plan. I did to but he came through. Was it too soon after Wimbledon for

:09:08.:09:13.

you to peak? No, I had a great preparation, all of us. I took

:09:13.:09:17.

three weeks off. Everything went perfect. I could not be more happy.

:09:17.:09:22.

Today, a few points here and there, things could have been different. I

:09:22.:09:26.

had a medal, that is what I wanted in the singles. I am happy for Andy,

:09:26.:09:30.

because he has a tough last few years, on a very high level, let's

:09:31.:09:34.

not feel too sorry for him. He has had a wonderful career. I am happy

:09:34.:09:39.

he got the gold today. Well said, thank you for coming up, I know you

:09:39.:09:45.

have other commitments. Thank you, Roger. That sums it up, the whole

:09:45.:09:49.

tournament took too much out of him? That is right. You could see

:09:49.:09:54.

after he won the semi-final against Del Potro, he went 90-17 in this

:09:54.:09:59.

third. There were tears of joy in a semi-final which is unheard of for

:09:59.:10:04.

Federer. -- he won it 19-17. Perhaps it was one step too far and

:10:04.:10:08.

the final but Murray was the biggest problem. He played a clean

:10:08.:10:14.

match. You reflect on Marie's final five sets in this event, the two

:10:14.:10:17.

sets against Djokovic and three straight against their career, it

:10:17.:10:22.

is unbelievable. He played best. He deserves the gold medal. It is a

:10:22.:10:26.

huge stepping stone for him in the context of his career. Roger was

:10:26.:10:30.

gracious in defeat, as you would expect but as far as he was saying,

:10:30.:10:35.

emotionally and physically drained. Yes, it is hard to play all those

:10:35.:10:40.

matches, six matches in eight days. I think it caught up to him. He

:10:40.:10:44.

looked a little flat. Murray's movement was unbelievable and got

:10:44.:10:52.

in his head. He did not worry much about the 2-0 game, he said he was

:10:52.:10:56.

a breakdown but it could have switched momentum. At Wimbledon and

:10:56.:11:00.

the final, there was a 20 minute service game for Murray and Federer

:11:00.:11:06.

broke. It went to about ten or 11 juices and Federer got a break of

:11:06.:11:10.

serve and got on a roll and Murray was the one on the role of Berrett

:11:10.:11:14.

was trying to get back in. Once he was up, that was a great platform

:11:14.:11:19.

but he did not stop. He won nine straight games and that does not

:11:19.:11:22.

happen to Federer on a grass court, so an incredible achievement and he

:11:22.:11:27.

should be very proud. I have to do something for American TV, I will

:11:27.:11:31.

see you soon. Thank you, John. We could have

:11:31.:11:35.

another gold medal because he is coming out in about 40 minutes to

:11:35.:11:39.

play the mixed doubles with Laura Robson. They are up against

:11:40.:11:42.

Azarenka and Max Mirnyi, the top seeds. But anything is possible

:11:42.:11:48.

that? Murray will be walking on there. People will say has the had

:11:48.:11:53.

a tough schedule, but he will have so much adrenalin and the way the

:11:53.:11:57.

spirit of the Great Britain team across all sports has been

:11:57.:12:01.

producing some unbelievable performances, he will say, let's do

:12:01.:12:06.

the double here. Laura Robson, what a story that is. She was not in the

:12:06.:12:09.

singles event and she got in as an altar that and then she was in

:12:09.:12:13.

doubles, suddenly she is in mixed and playing for the gold medal. It

:12:13.:12:18.

History could be made this afternoon at Weymouth as Ben Ainslie goes for gold in the finn class. If successful, he would win a fourth successive gold to add to silver won in 1996, and would deserve the title of the greatest Olympic sailor ever.
