The local hope went down 4-6 7-5 6-3 6-4 to Federer, before clearly showing his emotions in the post-game speeches, finding it difficult to hold back tears after another heartbreaking defeat.
However, the Scot spoke to reporters later on, and was philosophical in defeat to a player who claimed his 17th Grand Slam and seventh Wimbledon title.
“I lost to a guy that’s now won this tournament seven times and is No 1 in the world,” Murray said responding to questions claiming this was his best chance to break through at a major.
“So if that’s your best chance, then we’re talking about one of the greatest athletes of all time here, like we’re saying. Got to put it in context a little bit.”
However, he added: “When you lose, it’s hard, it’s tough to take, but you need to try and show strength of character to come back from it. Hopefully one day you get there.”
He continued: “I played better this time in the final, and that’s the main thing.”
Meanwhile, Federer insisted he was sure Murray would win a Grand Slam in time.
“He’s done so well. I see what he goes through on a daily basis on tour. At Wimbledon I think he handles it so perfectly,” he said. “I really believe he will win Grand Slams, not just one. He works extremely hard. He’s as professional as you can be. Things just didn’t quite turn out for him today.
“But I’m sure he got another step closer to a Grand Slam title. I really believe and hope for him he’s going to win one soon.”
