Andy Murray is searching for his first Grand Slam while Roger Federer is looking to become king of the grass at Wimbledon for the seventh time in his illustrious career. 

Will Murray get his first? Will Federer get his seventh? The wait will have to be even longer seeing how they are currently in a weather delay, according to Wimbledon's Twitter feed

The weather stoppage is the 15th in the past 13 days.

 

Who does the stoppage benefit?

Murray clearly benefits from the stoppage of play. He won the first set 6-4 with incredible adrenaline and enthusiasm. When he stepped onto the court, his confidence was high and it led him to the opening set victory.

However, Federer found his momentum after that, winning the second set 7-5. He's mixing in his shots very well, hitting the slice, performing the backhand and he's finally going to the net strong and finishing winners. 

With the wait, Murray gets to regain his focus and relax his mindset. The advantage is clearly on his side.

 

When will the weather stop?

According to Weather.com, the weather appears to be heading for a possible stop around 6 p.m. local time. With the ability to close the roof at Wimbledon, that's the decision the tournament has decided to do, according to Wimbledon's Twitter feed.

The closing of the roof will be the ninth closing of the tournament.

 

Prediction

Murray lost momentum, but now so has Federer. With the roof closing, I have to give the edge to Federer, who has been in this situation before.

He realizes that this may be one of the few golden opportunities he will have to win another Grand Slam and I don't see him letting it slip away.
