Hello and welcome to Wimbledon. We saw history today, but it belongs

:00:52.:00:55.

to Roger Federer. He produced a masterclass to crush Andy Murray's

:00:55.:00:59.

dreams of becoming the first British man to take the title since

:00:59.:01:07.

1936. This is how he did it. This was match point. A dramatic

:01:07.:01:12.

match which Murray had led by a set and a break of serve. But the rain

:01:12.:01:18.

came down, be roof came down and Roger got better and better. It is

:01:18.:01:22.

the seventh title. He has not held the trophy for three years, but

:01:22.:01:28.

this is what it means to this great champion.

:01:28.:01:32.

Andy Murray gracious in defeat, but very emotional on the court

:01:32.:01:37.

afterwards. He tried so hard but it was not enough. The genius of this

:01:37.:01:44.

man, just too good on the day. This was just a few moments ago

:01:44.:01:48.

with his wife, who has been such a supporter since they met in the

:01:48.:01:56.

year 2,000. Well, she sat and saw him when so many matches. This

:01:56.:02:04.

means so much to him. He may not win a Grand Slam again, they said.

:02:04.:02:08.

But here he is, not only collecting the trophy but becoming the world

:02:08.:02:13.

No. 1. That will be made official tomorrow. And on the board behind,

:02:13.:02:18.

the name Roger Federer is there seven times. An amazing record,

:02:18.:02:26.

only equalled by Pete Sampras. Now writer making his way up the stairs,

:02:26.:02:32.

through the guests of the boil box. -- now Roger making his way up the

:02:32.:02:40.

stairs. Up onto the balcony. His enduring fans, who have waited

:02:40.:02:43.

through the rain. They have been watching the screens, and that is

:02:44.:02:48.

their reward. He is such a popular champion. He may not be British,

:02:48.:02:55.

but boy, do they love him here. That is Roger Federer.

:02:55.:02:59.

What wonderful scenes they are. They are true tennis fans. When you

:02:59.:03:04.

think what they have been through, weather-wise. It has absolutely

:03:04.:03:08.

poured here this afternoon. We saw history with it being the first

:03:08.:03:12.

final completed under the roof. John Lloyd, Tim Henman with me.

:03:12.:03:19.

Great scenes, and Roger, wow, seven titles. Such a popular champion as

:03:19.:03:23.

well. It is just phenomenal. His

:03:23.:03:29.

achievements in the game - 17 Grand Slam titles. People were trying to

:03:29.:03:33.

write him off. He had reached the age of 30 and the list of people

:03:34.:03:37.

who have won after their 30s is very small. But when you see the

:03:37.:03:43.

way that he is playing, you see the way he moves, it is phenomenal.

:03:43.:03:46.

Putting on a grass court, where I think it gives his attacking

:03:46.:03:51.

ability that bit extra and I think he is the player to beat. I

:03:51.:03:56.

wouldn't be surprised if insolvency comes back and is still the

:03:56.:03:59.

favourite. He produces shot that nobody else

:03:59.:04:03.

can. It must be so demoralising at the other end was stopped exactly.

:04:03.:04:09.

If you don't get a -- at the other end.

:04:09.:04:15.

Exactly. The volley he hit in the second set, the drop volley from

:04:15.:04:18.

the service line, nobody would have even thought about going for that

:04:18.:04:23.

other than him. To make it, that won the second set, basically. I'm

:04:23.:04:27.

not sure what is his best performance - winning the Wimbledon

:04:27.:04:31.

title of becoming number one again. To me, that is mind boggling.

:04:32.:04:40.

A nice problem to have. It is 285 weeks, which equals the

:04:40.:04:43.

record off Pete Sampras. As long as nobody plays for the next seven

:04:43.:04:48.

days, he breaks that record as well. It was the only record that Sampras

:04:48.:04:53.

had left, and he has taken it away as well. If you look at the way the

:04:53.:05:01.

ranking system works, it is points are Kimmett over 52 weeks. Djokovic

:05:01.:05:05.

had won a couple of Championships and had a good chance of getting to

:05:05.:05:10.

number one. But I think the knock on effect of winning is that he is

:05:10.:05:12.

going to be number one for some time.

:05:12.:05:20.

Tim, you were the closest -- the closest.

:05:20.:05:27.

Do you see what he did wrong? He had never lost a set in a Grand

:05:27.:05:37.
:05:37.:05:37.

Slam final. Andy's momentum was with him. He did not take any break

:05:37.:05:43.

points in the fourth set. Playing Federer, you know your chances a

:05:43.:05:53.
:05:53.:05:53.

look -- are going to be few and far between. He missed a few shots. It

:05:53.:06:01.

is better that he has tried to play a point on his own terms. Mistake

:06:01.:06:08.

from Federer, you would say he was not aggressive enough. -- if he was

:06:08.:06:13.

waiting for a mistake from Federer. There was a pivotal game when they

:06:13.:06:21.

came back under the roof. It went on for 90 minutes. 10 deuces. -- 90

:06:21.:06:29.

minutes. It just breaks of spirit, when you have fought this hard.

:06:29.:06:35.

You also have to consider that Murray had 40-0 in the game, three

:06:35.:06:39.

opportunities to close the game out. opportunities to close the game out.

:06:39.:06:43.

Then Federer was so intense. It was relentless, the pressure. Finally

:06:43.:06:49.

he was able to take the opportunity. he was able to take the opportunity.

:06:49.:06:52.

Federer held serve. That was where he was taking the match by the

:06:52.:06:58.

scruff of the neck. The one thing about Murray, in the

:06:58.:07:05.

other finals he was too passive. He was not passive today, he was just

:07:05.:07:10.

beaten by a better player. There's no crime in that with Roger Federer.

:07:10.:07:14.

The tough part now is this is four in a row. The press is going to get

:07:14.:07:19.

on to that. This is where Ivan Lendl and so is money.

:07:19.:07:29.
:07:29.:07:29.

The Federer forehand won in so many points. This is where Murray is up

:07:29.:07:33.

against the wall. Murray did well with a bad bounce,

:07:33.:07:35.

Murray did well with a bad bounce, but he is playing aggressively,

:07:35.:07:39.

looking to dominate. He ends up coming into the not -- net on a

:07:39.:07:46.

good shot. Federer is able to come up with an exceptional backhand

:07:46.:07:49.

pass. pass.

:07:49.:07:52.

I was going to mention the forehand, but the back can, when you are

:07:52.:07:55.

serving to him, you know you have got to get a good second serve in

:07:55.:08:00.

because he runs around and unleashes this massive arm.

:08:00.:08:05.

He was looking to run around and dictate on the second serves. When

:08:05.:08:10.

you are playing against him and his forehand is that good and he is

:08:10.:08:13.

hitting over towards his backhand side, your target to aim at is very

:08:13.:08:18.

small. Then you see the way to open it is you hit a backhand down-the-

:08:18.:08:22.

line, but then you play to his strength. That is where the margins

:08:22.:08:28.

becomes more. Once the start dominating -- he starts dominating,

:08:28.:08:33.

you make unforced errors. It is like a vicious cycle.

:08:33.:08:37.

You get a feeling at the beginning of the fourth set, when the break

:08:37.:08:39.

happen, that it was just demoralising.

:08:39.:08:46.

I think he was. The second serve, Murray's stats coming into this

:08:46.:08:53.

were phenomenal win any -- winning second service points. But you

:08:53.:08:56.

could see Federer causing Murray some problems.

:08:56.:09:02.

This was his last chance. He had worked so hard, and look at that.

:09:02.:09:07.

This is why this game is so great and so cruel. Half an inch would

:09:07.:09:11.

have made the difference of keeping the set alive.

:09:11.:09:16.

That is a different story. That is a forehand he will make 19 out of

:09:16.:09:20.

20 and he has just over hit it. That was when Federer had the

:09:20.:09:29.

momentum. He was up two sets and he felt he had to try and break back

:09:29.:09:33.

then or federal was going to make it harder for us stop he was having

:09:33.:09:40.

trouble standing up -- federal will -- Federer was going to make it

:09:40.:09:46.

harder. He was going to have trodden --

:09:46.:09:52.

problem standing up. It was tough for him today. He was

:09:52.:09:56.

taking the ball on. It was a very good performance. He is going to be

:09:56.:10:00.

devastated, but if he takes it the right way, he is close, getting

:10:00.:10:04.

closer. There's more Grand Slams left.

:10:04.:10:08.

And Roger Federer said it, he will win one.

:10:08.:10:13.

I think we all believe that, but it is the most important thing that

:10:13.:10:16.

Andy does. It is difficult for him in the short-term after losing such

:10:16.:10:21.

an important match. He is doing the right things and he is playing the

:10:21.:10:26.

right way, and the more he does that, the more opportunities he is

:10:26.:10:30.

going to have in the biggest matches. But it is going to be a

:10:30.:10:34.

tough loss to get over. That is when you have got to learn.

:10:34.:10:39.

Ivan Lendl has got to pick him up, say, wait a minute and look at what

:10:39.:10:44.

you did achieve. He has given so much excitement and hope to people

:10:44.:10:48.

here. I hope he knows that he has got the support.

:10:48.:10:52.

I think it helped him today. The crowd loved him. The beauty of

:10:52.:10:56.

tennis is there's a chance to get back into the winning circle just

:10:56.:11:00.

around the corner. We have got the Olympics, the US Open in a couple

:11:00.:11:03.

of months. Not long to wait to have another go.

:11:03.:11:08.

But finally, we get paid tribute to Roger Federer, who is back at the

:11:08.:11:13.

top of the game. It is incredible, what he has been

:11:13.:11:17.

able to achieve in the short-term. You felt that perhaps Djokovic and

:11:17.:11:23.

Nadal were separating themselves from him and he had other ideas.

:11:23.:11:28.

When you go back to the semi-final in the US Open, I think this is his

:11:28.:11:34.

eighth title since then and he has been knocking on the door, but he

:11:34.:11:38.

has never won the struggle for confidence. This is going to

:11:38.:11:42.

increase that. Thank you very much. We have got

:11:42.:11:46.

more tennis coming up. The mixed doubles final is heading on to

:11:46.:11:50.

Centre Court. Today the hero was Roger Federer. Champion for the

:11:50.:12:00.
:12:00.:12:00.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:12:00.:12:43.

A great and popular champion. We have got one file to go at

:12:43.:12:48.

Wimbledon. It is the mixed doubles final and they are on Centre Court.

:12:48.:12:53.

It is the No. 2 seeds against the No. Four seeds. We have got Leander

:12:53.:12:58.

Paes and Elena Vesnina against Lisa Raymond and Mike Bryan. They are on

:12:58.:13:03.

court. Everybody is taking a rest after the drama of the men's final.

:13:03.:13:07.

But they will be back in their seats after this one. Let's join

:13:07.:13:17.
:13:17.:13:18.

our commentators, Tracy Austin and Roger Federer's CV continues to get

:13:18.:13:22.

more impressive. And it does not more impressive. And it does not

:13:22.:13:30.

get any more impressive than the guys out here. Mike Bryan and Lisa

:13:30.:13:37.

Raymond, Mike has won 11 Grand Slam doubles titles with his brother Bob,

:13:37.:13:47.
:13:47.:13:48.

and two mixed. Those are with Lisa. But that was nearly a decade ago.

:13:48.:13:53.

In 2003 they won Roland Garros. And this is Lisa Raymond, 38 years of

:13:53.:14:03.

age. The winner of 10 Grand Slams, four mixed, two with Mike Bryan.

:14:03.:14:10.

One of them was in 1996. Then she won in 1999 with Leander Paes. She

:14:10.:14:20.
:14:20.:14:22.

just rolls on and on. Here is a guy a year older than Lisa, Leander

:14:22.:14:29.

Paes, aged 39. Seven men's Grand Slams to his name, 6 mixed. He has

:14:29.:14:38.

been going, wing titles since... He won the mixed here in 1999. They

:14:38.:14:45.

know each other's play inside out. The one young woman here who has

:14:45.:14:51.

not won a Grand Slam yet, she has been knocking on the door, Elena

:14:51.:14:58.

Vesnina from Russia. She has been in three Grand Slam ladies finals

:14:58.:15:08.
:15:08.:15:10.

and two mixed finals, one here. Tracy, it is a tough one to call.

:15:10.:15:16.

It really is. These four expert doubles players. Three of them are

:15:16.:15:23.

in their thirties, two in their late thirties. They have been

:15:23.:15:28.

around the scene for a long time. Elena Vesnina is younger, 25. She

:15:28.:15:37.

has the least experience. That is how they got through.

:15:37.:15:47.
:15:47.:15:58.

Straight sets all the way. The number former proceeds, they

:15:58.:16:05.

had a run that was pretty easy until the semi-final. -- the number

:16:05.:16:10.

until the semi-final. -- the number four seeds. That one went all the

:16:10.:16:15.

way, as you can see. They have way, as you can see. They have

:16:16.:16:25.
:16:26.:16:26.

earned their place in the final A big smiler. Let's hope we are

:16:26.:16:29.

going to have plenty to smile about this evening.

:16:29.:16:34.

UMPIRE: One minute. It will take a while for the

:16:34.:16:39.

atmosphere to rebuild. It was so charged through the Men's Singles.

:16:39.:16:43.

Such a phenomenal tennis, such high quality throughout all four sets.

:16:43.:16:49.

So much on the line for both players. Andy's speech won him a

:16:49.:16:55.

lot of fans, so emotional. You can see what a title here would mean to

:16:55.:17:00.

him. He had a terrific run to the final. He wants one more in his

:17:00.:17:04.

career. Tracy, you were in the royal box to

:17:04.:17:08.

watch that and now you are here with me. What happened?!

:17:08.:17:17.

It was a phenomenal experience. To be there, so close to the court...

:17:17.:17:24.

Leander Paes is going to play in his sixth Olympics in London. That

:17:24.:17:32.

is the most ever for an Asian man. There's been some controversy, some

:17:32.:17:35.

behind-the-scenes shenanigans and he has found it difficult to get a

:17:35.:17:40.

partner but in the Men's Doubles and in the mixed. But he is a

:17:41.:17:46.

phenomenal talent. At 39, he still moves spectacularly quickly around

:17:46.:17:52.

the court. That would be Polly his best asset,

:17:52.:17:59.

his positioning in doubles. -- probably his best asset. He is not

:17:59.:18:03.

going to hit through his opponent all the time, although he is a

:18:03.:18:07.

great shot maker. He can make the dip shots, the angles. He has

:18:08.:18:13.

always tried to cut his opponents in two and get them out of position.

:18:13.:18:17.

He is very much a threat at the net because he is so quick. You never

:18:17.:18:21.

know where he is going to show up, and all of a sudden intercept your

:18:21.:18:31.
:18:31.:18:32.

shot. Elena Vesnina is a very solid ground stroke. A lot of power.

:18:32.:18:35.

Got to the quarter-final of the women's doubles and lost to Lisa

:18:35.:18:41.

Raymond, who is across the net from her again this afternoon. Liezel

:18:41.:18:51.
:18:51.:18:54.

Huber, too. Lisa Raymond will be playing in the

:18:55.:19:04.
:19:05.:19:05.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:19:05.:19:46.

It will be the Americans to start, Right from the first point, you see

:19:46.:19:56.
:19:56.:20:07.

Leander Paes chips are down low. -- Bryan and Paes have been on

:20:07.:20:17.
:20:17.:20:24.

opposite sides of the net so many Got it down low, made it a

:20:24.:20:34.
:20:34.:20:47.

difficult shot for Vesnina. A lot A couple of interceptions from Paes,

:20:47.:20:57.
:20:57.:20:57.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:20:57.:21:53.

That was such a good return from Good teamwork, and they are on

:21:53.:22:03.
:22:03.:22:09.

their way. They have 158 doubles titles between them. Quite amazing.

:22:09.:22:19.

They show no signs of easing up. Lisa Raymond has done a good job

:22:19.:22:22.

over the last couple of years of becoming the fittest I think she

:22:22.:22:32.
:22:32.:22:32.

has ever been on tour. At 38, she was one of the oldest to win a

:22:32.:22:39.

Grand Slam last year. Before that, I think it was Billie-Jean King.

:22:39.:22:49.
:22:49.:23:20.

Not much ferocity behind his sense, but he picks his spot. He has more

:23:20.:23:30.
:23:30.:23:48.

time to get to the net command he That was a perfect example. He was

:23:48.:23:57.

on the service line. The closer you were to the net, the more difficult

:23:57.:24:07.
:24:07.:24:07.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:24:07.:25:39.

it is for your opponent to get it If Leander Paes does not get that

:25:39.:25:48.

shot right, Mike Bryan will be all over it. Carrillion from Leander

:25:48.:25:58.
:25:58.:26:00.

Paes! -- brilliant from Leander Paes. Lisa Raymond looked like she

:26:00.:26:10.
:26:10.:26:18.

had a whole there. Leander Paes was Paes knew he had to get all the way

:26:18.:26:28.
:26:28.:26:46.

across, otherwise Mike Bryan would Vesnina is very solid at the

:26:46.:26:56.
:26:56.:27:29.

Solid serving from Lisa Raymond. It is good to suit them settling in so

:27:29.:27:39.
:27:39.:27:40.

well. It was fantastic doubles last night. Fantastic tennis. Absolutely.

:27:40.:27:50.
:27:50.:28:02.

Us men's doubles was fascinating. Marray and Nielsen, it was great.

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

And Ben Serena and Venus winning. - - and then. Serena won the singles

:28:12.:28:22.
:28:22.:28:52.

as well. It is the kind of day when His reactions are so good. Our

:28:52.:28:57.

reactions about the last thing you lose as you get older? I think it

:28:57.:29:01.

is because of the eyesight. You're just not as quick at picking the

:29:01.:29:11.
:29:11.:29:26.

Leander Paes is so successful, at 39. You can see he could go on for

:29:26.:29:36.
:29:36.:29:50.

He is so good. Vesnina did very well to get back there. A lot of

:29:50.:29:57.

encouragement. Not just one go, but three does, and that made the

:29:57.:30:07.
:30:07.:30:07.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:30:07.:30:49.

Game for stock -- game. And so, an encouraging start. Very difficult

:30:49.:30:56.

to pick the winner right enough. It looked like another dark cloud is

:30:56.:31:06.
:31:06.:31:27.

Beautiful staff -- beauty. That is the difference from the better it

:31:27.:31:37.
:31:37.:31:37.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:31:37.:32:51.

doubles players, better positions X a return from Vesnina. --

:32:51.:33:01.
:33:01.:33:03.

excellent return. That flicker of the rest meant she could get it low

:33:03.:33:13.
:33:13.:33:13.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:33:13.:34:27.

She is certainly going for the Game Fulstow up -- game. They may

:34:27.:34:30.

have lost the game, but the best points SOFA and really belong to

:34:30.:34:40.
:34:40.:34:57.

We talked about Andy Murray missing out on the Grand Slam title. This

:34:58.:35:05.

is the 6th for Elena Vesnina. Looks like the body language is very

:35:05.:35:15.
:35:15.:35:17.

positive. Meandered does a good job. He is so experienced. -- Paes this

:35:17.:35:27.
:35:27.:35:27.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:35:27.:36:29.

His father was an Olympian, I think There was an incredible return.

earned nearly $9 million. When you start winning doubles titles, there

:41:05.:41:10.

is a heck of a living to be made. Lisa Raymond was a singles player

:41:10.:41:20.
:41:20.:41:25.

as well. She stopped playing singles in 2007. Once, she was

you want to continue watching, you come on then red button. But on

:48:45.:48:50.

Centre Court, we witnessed a very emotional Andy Murray deliver a

:48:50.:48:54.

tearful speech after losing the final to have Roger Federer. One

:48:54.:49:04.

hour on, a more composed and he is talking to Phil Jones.

:49:04.:49:14.
:49:14.:49:15.

You dig yourself proud today, you did the nation proud. What was it

:49:15.:49:25.
:49:25.:49:26.

like getting that first set under your belt? I tried to make sure I

:49:26.:49:34.

was moving my legs aloft and get as many balls as I could. I got a

:49:35.:49:41.

break in the first game, which was a good start. The last two days

:49:42.:49:51.
:49:52.:49:55.

were not that easy. I was much happier with the way that I started.

:49:55.:49:58.

You carry that through into a second set and had opportunities

:49:58.:50:05.

there. Was that the gear shift in terms of him coming back into the

:50:05.:50:15.
:50:15.:50:18.

match? I went for my shots, and did not second-guess myself which may

:50:18.:50:28.
:50:28.:50:42.

be in the past I had done. One man lost serve, -- when I lost serve,

:50:42.:50:52.

that was a tough game to lose. Those games were important.

:50:57.:51:05.

crowd supported you. How a where are you of everything going on

:51:05.:51:15.
:51:15.:51:18.

around you? It gives you an extra boost. When you feel it is getting

:51:18.:51:23.

away from you, it stops you thinking that, and to focus on the

:51:23.:51:33.
:51:33.:51:46.

next game. I just couldn't quite get there. 1 USSR -- when you

:51:46.:51:54.

assess the fortnight, how proud are you? It is the first time I have

:51:54.:52:04.
:52:04.:52:06.

been in the final here, so it is a good start. I think I'd dealt with

:52:06.:52:16.
:52:16.:52:21.

the situations I was in. I thought I did a good job in the game with

:52:21.:52:31.
:52:31.:52:32.

Baghdatis. I think the two weeks has been good for me. A I am

:52:32.:52:42.
:52:42.:52:52.

disappointed. I think this has ended due to many more people --

:52:52.:53:02.
:53:02.:53:02.

endear you. What do you think about that? Was trying to say, a lot of

:53:02.:53:07.

people say playing a Wimbledon, they have is so much pressure and

:53:07.:53:16.

it is so difficult, it is not the case. People say the pressure comes

:53:16.:53:23.

from the public. Everybody has been supporting me, it has been

:53:23.:53:33.
:53:33.:53:34.

unbelievable. These last couple of weeks, they have not put the

:53:34.:53:44.
:53:44.:53:54.

pressure on me. I was upset at the end. I feel that supports and I

:53:54.:54:04.
:54:04.:54:10.

You did us proud. Thank you. SUE BARKER: He did not let anybody

:54:10.:54:14.

down. He had the great champion rattled. Roger Federer believes he

:54:14.:54:21.

can win a Grand Slam one day. He has a lot to be proud of.

:54:21.:54:24.

That was Andy Murray. We are heading back to Centre Court, where

:54:24.:54:30.

we are in the opening game of the second set. Let's rejoin Tracy and

:54:30.:54:40.
:54:40.:54:40.

Leander Paes is having trouble again with his serve. It was broken

:54:40.:54:48.

in the opening set. It means he is a point away from taking this

:54:48.:54:58.
:54:58.:55:20.

A second double for the team. Really cannot afford to have his

:55:20.:55:25.

serve broken at the beginning of the second set. The momentum seems

:55:25.:55:35.
:55:35.:55:40.

Such an excellent return from Lisa Raymond. Just got it down low.

:55:40.:55:50.
:55:50.:55:50.

A subtle smile from Paes. Yeah, poor execution, and now facing a

:55:50.:56:00.
:56:00.:56:40.

Leander Paes really struggling to hold his serve. They keep mixing it

:56:40.:56:50.
:56:50.:56:55.

There's any again the star of the show. Great return, and then too

:56:55.:57:05.
:57:05.:57:11.

Too much power from Raymond. She was trying to finish it off with a

:57:11.:57:21.
:57:21.:57:35.

Mike Bryan wanted to challenge, the umpire said it was too late.

:57:35.:57:44.

Phenomenal return! She played well in this game, Lisa

:57:44.:57:54.
:57:54.:58:27.

He is holding on. But it is a question of that, isn't it? He is

:58:27.:58:37.
:58:37.:59:09.

under constant pressure. Vesnina Oh, yes. Just the block up the line

:59:09.:59:19.
:59:19.:59:49.

He just Czechs, but the umpire confirms the call. Another double,

:59:49.:59:59.
:59:59.:00:18.

That was scary from Leander Paes. Under pressure and a break point

:00:18.:00:22.

down. Mike Bryan didn't pick that at all. You wouldn't. You would

:00:22.:00:27.

think he would go deep. This kind of shot is even more difficult on

:00:27.:00:37.
:00:37.:00:53.

Another one. Clever from Vesnina. On grass, those shorter volleys are

:00:53.:01:03.
:01:03.:01:16.

Out, and out of trouble. Four break points saved. They edged out in

:01:16.:01:24.

front. That will give them some confidence. Really pushed to the

:01:34.:01:35.

lower it. -- limit. Vesnina missing a few volleys early on in the game.

:01:35.:01:44.

It put her apart under pressure. -- her partner.

:01:44.:01:49.

Mike Bryan will serve. It has not been automatic that he holds serve,

:01:49.:01:59.
:01:59.:02:22.

far from it. This looks like it could be like

:02:22.:02:32.
:02:32.:02:32.

the last one. Such a great angle out wide to the Vesnina's backhand.

:02:32.:02:42.
:02:42.:03:18.

There's the angle. Of course, Bob is married already

:03:18.:03:28.
:03:28.:03:46.

She has her own Twitter account. The reactions are so fantastic. You

:03:46.:03:51.

expect them to make shots like that. It was like he took a full swing on

:04:23.:04:29.

space. Just so accurate, just a couple of

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

Danger could be lurking. Paes is so close to the middle, trying to help

:05:42.:05:52.
:05:52.:06:05.

They were knocking on the door with Paes's serve, and four break points

:06:05.:06:11.

couldn't make it count. They are looking good now, the number two

:06:11.:06:14.

seeds. They have looked solid throughout

:06:14.:06:22.

the whole match. Serving well. They are charging the net. It is so

:06:22.:06:30.

tough to get around them. They have made very few unforced errors.

:06:30.:06:36.

is amazing, though, looking down at the stats, that when these two

:06:36.:06:46.
:06:46.:06:50.

started winning titles it was 1996. 16 years ago. Now, another nine

:06:50.:06:56.

Grand Slam titles later and the small matter of $9 million, her

Mike was still teasing him when he went to the chair as well. These

conclusion of this match, which, if they hold serve, will not be far

:27:53.:28:03.
:28:03.:28:03.

Mike Bryan has been rock-solid on serve, hardly got a point in this

:28:03.:28:07.

second set behind the serve, and you cannot imagine him freaking out

:28:07.:28:13.

for the prospect of serving out for the title. He has served so quickly,

:28:13.:28:23.

and it is a tall ask for Leander pace and Elena Vesnina hair. --

:28:33.:28:58.

Now, what kind of magic will be to He really wanted to give it a crack,

Great reactions from Leander pace, I have got to choose my words

carefully. In tennis, rather than in life, the men in Mixed Doubles

are usually are the Dominic factor, but it can usually be taken too far.

:33:12.:33:17.

-- the dominant factor. I think Lisa just got a bit nervous,

rattled a bit, trying to close this Excellent return, and those nerves,

have got to forget about that match point they had. A great emotion!

Vesnina, she is always bouncing around, walking very quickly

Again, a little Miss communication between the Americans. A little bit

Just shows you, takes a 10% deflation from that team, and a 20%

elevation from Paes and Vesnina, and the whole momentum changes in

:40:00.:40:04.

this match. They do have momentum going into the third set. It will

:40:04.:40:10.

be very difficult for Bryan and Raymond to turn it around. But it

:40:10.:40:15.

is another super doubles match. We have had so many. It has been an

:40:15.:40:20.

unbelievable tournament for play, and will stories, for drama. Every

single title has an unbelievable story behind it. Serena Williams

the doubles. And then Roger Federer, after two-and- a-half years, a

:41:02.:41:06.

Grand Slam champion again. And here we have Elena Vesnina, who has been

:41:07.:41:12.

in five finals before, and lost them all. Now is just slightly

:41:12.:41:20.

their favourite, she and Leander, to take this Mixed Doubles title.

:41:20.:41:30.
:41:30.:41:36.

The crowd are really involved in So it is Leander Paes to begin set

:41:36.:41:46.
:41:46.:42:24.

Just a look up from Mike Bryan to check, but no challenge. One of the

:42:24.:42:34.
:42:34.:42:48.

rare errors from Mike Bryan on the Five it's almost as if the more

time she has at the net, the less effective the shot. Her instant

:43:03.:43:37.

It merely dropped him. When Leander Paes hit that shot, really should

:44:10.:44:14.

from Vesnina, if you are going to get Mike Bryan on the backhand side,

:44:14.:44:18.

there are so many more choices on the forehand. The lob for effective,

:44:18.:44:28.

they are already facing a brick Paes did not do enough with the

:44:28.:44:33.

ball and it is break point. It is a difficult shot because he knew

Bryan Moore and Raymond were at the night, he had to be very precise,

A beautiful volley from Leander Paes, right between Raymond and

where she wanted it. Making it Again, the interception from Paes

His father played hockey as an Olympian but you wonder if his name

was changed by deed poll because he does have such pace! Still at the

age of 39. As rapid as anybody on His 6th Olympics coming up. Let's

:54:29.:54:33.

hope they can get the politics sorted out and he can take to the

court because there have been a lot of behind-the-scenes shenanigans,

which does not do anybody any credit. He is a huge star. At the

Sydney opening ceremony. Could go into the movies when he is done

:54:55.:55:05.
:55:05.:55:17.

He's got such an expressive face, Leander Paes. You can do what --

Great return from Paes. A fine finish. Paes hits that forehand

:04:54.:05:12.

Paes made that easy for him. It is almost like a mist has descended.

Absolutely lashing down! And the roof is... It has never been more

:05:20.:05:30.
:05:30.:05:37.

used than in this fortnight. It is so loud it actually makes it

:05:37.:05:40.

difficult for the players because they cannot hear the ball on the

:05:40.:05:45.

racket. And you rely on that so much to know how hard it is coming

:05:45.:05:55.
:05:55.:06:23.

A lot of break points in this The rain even harder, and it must

back. He hit such an excellent volley but quick hands from Lisa

:07:57.:08:23.

Raymond. Get that extra ball back Called out. You can only just hear.

Everybody looking upwards! It is And after an hour and 49 minutes,

for the first time in the match, Drama inside and drama outside!

:09:20.:09:24.

This is the fiercest rain of the fortnight, and we have had some

:09:24.:09:32.

rain this fortnight. Everything! Including Andy Murray finishing at

:09:32.:09:37.

two minutes past 11 one evening, just in time. That was on a

:09:37.:09:42.

Saturday night. Of course, that middle Sunday, they would have had

:09:42.:09:47.

to wait a whole day to finish the match. A lot of great stories this

:09:47.:09:54.

Wimbledon 2000 world. It is leaking! Those of the drains

:09:54.:10:02.

outside! Oh! But who knows. Once they came indoors earlier, Federer

:10:02.:10:12.
:10:12.:10:30.

And Federer played a lot of his Cemaes and finals indoors. -- semi-

:10:30.:10:40.
:10:40.:10:41.

That was interesting there. Leander Paes whispered to Vesnina right

:10:41.:10:45.

before that returned and I think Mike Bryan was thinking she was

:10:45.:10:55.
:10:55.:11:12.

going to cross. So he tried to go With this noise, you have to

beginning to ease, the noise Leander Paes read that goalie

:12:54.:13:04.
:13:04.:13:28.

Yeah. A good interception there from Mike Bryan. I continued to be

:13:28.:13:38.
:13:38.:14:07.

Leander Paes thought it was a let. He said the machine did not call it.

:14:07.:14:17.
:14:17.:14:40.

Fine return from Lisa Raymond. And they are back in front and two

:14:40.:14:50.
:14:50.:14:51.

Can't help but thinking we've got another drama still to come because

:14:51.:14:55.

they have been ahead three times and they have been pegged back each

:14:55.:15:03.

time. So many changes in momentum in this final. One team is down and

:15:03.:15:11.

then they rebound. Very resilient mentally. They can draw on all

:15:11.:15:16.

their experience now. All the doubles titles they have had. 158

got the Bryan brothers started in A great combination. A good serve

:19:33.:20:07.

I'm not sure he had to play that. don't think he was sure either, and

:20:07.:20:11.

therefore he hesitated just long enough to cause the mistake.

:20:11.:20:15.

Because he was in an awkward position, about three-quarters up

:20:15.:20:25.
:20:25.:20:25.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 42 seconds

:20:25.:21:50.

Just enough kick on it to move away They had done the honest thing,

:21:50.:21:55.

Paes and Vesnina, they have forced Bryan to serve out for this, they

:21:55.:22:00.

could not before in the second set. 45 minutes later, can he do it this

:22:00.:22:10.
:22:10.:22:14.

The Bryans have always exuded confidence, maybe they hide

:22:14.:22:20.

something underneath. Because if it looked as if he had one or two

:22:20.:22:29.

moments of doubt during their rallies. Can he be tough here? He

:22:29.:22:35.

did not waste any time sitting down. And Raymond, that game where Mike

:22:35.:22:40.

Bryan was trying to serve it at, she hesitated three times on her

:22:40.:22:50.
:22:50.:23:27.

Ideal. A very smart serve. Because Vesnina has really got the rhythm

:23:27.:23:37.
:23:37.:23:44.

on the return, so he took the pace Same again. Easily put away. Here

:23:44.:23:54.
:23:54.:24:08.

are three more championship points, But way it goes! And they are the

The first mixed for Mike Bryan, he has won a couple of Men's Doubles

:24:23.:24:29.

with his brother. But now he is a Mixed Doubles champion as well. And

:24:29.:24:39.
:24:39.:24:40.

Lisa Raymond gets Grand Slam title number 11. A third mixed title

:24:40.:24:45.

between the two of them, they just go on and on. Yes, they were very

:24:45.:24:52.

solid today. There serving and return, just that one he Cup. --

:24:52.:25:00.

that was just one he Cup. So the Mixed Doubles champions are Lisa

:25:00.:25:06.

Raymond and Mike Bryan, they win 6- 3, 5-7, 6-4.

:25:06.:25:10.

The final match has now been completed here at Wimbledon. What a

with his girlfriend who has been at his side, they will be pondering

:25:44.:25:48.

what happened today and they will take a break and look back at these

championships, becoming the first British man to make the final in 74
