Tim Henman: 'Andy Murray should not dwell on Roger Federer loss'

Tim Henman insists that Andy Murray should not dwell on his defeat to Roger Federer in the semi-finals of Wimbledon because of the inspired play of the Swiss in the match.

Tim Henman has urged Andy Murray not to be disheartened following his defeat to Roger Federer in the semi-finals of Wimbledon.

The 28-year-old crashed out of the last four in straight sets to the Swiss, who dominated proceedings on Centre Court to earn the chance to secure his eighth crown at SW19.

However, Henman has insisted that there was little Murray could do against the play of the 33-year-old, and is hopeful that he will not be too despondent ahead of future challenges.

"Andy played some great tennis but he came up against perhaps the greatest player of all time and he realises that there's plenty more opportunities ahead of him," Henman told BBC Sport.

"He's got the Davis Cup against France next week and I hope that he doesn't dwell on [defeat] too much because right now his game I think is as good as it's ever been and there are going to be a lot of bigger and better things around the corner.

"Murray will be bitterly disappointed but when he reflects on his performance I just really don't think he did much wrong."

Federer will face Novak Djokovic in the final on Sunday.
