Murray complained about the breezy conditions, but gave credit to Wawrinka.

“He played great. He hit big shots. He passed extremely well. He hit a lot of lines on big points. He served well. That was it,” Murray said.

The 28-year-old Wawrinka, meanwhile, was basking in the unaccustomed spotlight.

“It’s my moment and I’m enjoying it a lot,” he said. “I’m really thankful for [Federer] because he has helped me a lot, but today, for sure it’s my moment. Roger texted me straight after the match. He told me congrats.”
