Andy Murray was one of the few players in the world to hold a positive win loss record over Roger Federer, however after Murray’s back surgery at the end of 2013 Murray lost all three matches against Federer in 2014 and has a consequence Federer has a one point lead. At one stage Murray led their head to head 6-2, 8-5, 10-8 and 11- 9.
Before Wimbledon 2012 they had only ever played each other on hard courts and had met just twice in grand slams. Those two grand slam matches though were quite important, the 2008 US Open final, the 2010 Australian Open final with Federer winning both finals.
2011 – It will be remembered as the year of Djokovic, which meant Federer was relegated to 3rd in the world and with Murray 4th it usually meant they could only meet in finals and it just never happened.
2010 – The second year in succession that the Federer Murray head to head finished 2-2. Federer claimed the two crucial wins in the Oz open final and the round robin match in the Barclays ATP Tour Finals – Murray claimed two good straight sets masters series events.
2009 – It finished 2-2 this year, with Federer winning in the round robin match in the Barclays ATP Tour Finals as well as a masters 1000 win – Murray claimed another masters series win as well as a win in Doha right at the start of the year.
2008 – It finished 3-1 to Murray. 3 good wins for Murray in Dubai, Madrid and the old end of year championships in Shanghai could not compare though with US open final for Federer.
2006 – Murray claimed his first win over Federer at the Cincinnati Masters, Murray had only been on the ATP tour for 12 months, so it was big win for Murray.
2005 – Murray and Federer played their first match in the final in Bangkok, the 18 year old Murray lost on that day.
