From early 2000 onward, a new era in tennis was born. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Murray emerged as significant contenders for the major trophies. Needless to say, the rivalries between these players are iconic. One such rivalry is between Roger Federer and Andy Murray.
The memories of the Shanghai Tour of 2012 came to surface after an Instagram video was posted by TennisTV. The video was of Federer claiming a point from Murray in the opening game of the second set.
Federer, trailing the Brit by one set, served to save an early break. Both players put up a brilliant display of rallies, covering all of their halves of the court. However, a dropshot from Federer saw Murray struggle to reach the ball, and the point went to Federer.
Andy Murray considered the Swiss professional lucky and left his comment on the Instagram post. Although he went on to win the clash in straight sets, he couldn’t stop himself from making the comment.
“That guy Federer is so f****** lucky,” Murray commented.
