Handshake: Roger Federer saw off Andy Murray in four sets in Wimbledon final
Wimbledon champion Roger Federer thinks it is only a matter of time before Andy Murray wins a major title.
The Scot went down 4-6 7-5 6-3 6-4 to Federer on Sunday, the fourth time he has lost in a grand slam final.
But Federer, whose victory saw him regain the world number one ranking and moved him level with Pete Sampras and William Renshaw on seven Wimbledon titles, had positive words for Murray.
"I really do believe deep down in me he will win grand slams, not just one."
