That feather nonsense in the second set tie break is where it changed for me. He lost his concentration and served a double fault, that isn't an excuse, because it shouldn't have impacted him. Djokovic got the set and took control.

Murray has made the final of the last 3 Slams, won 1 and won the Olympics which every player wanted just as much. Djokovic is the best player in the world right now, but if Murray had won today he would clearly have been the best at this present moment.

Murray can certainly challenge him.
