Same venue, same players, different result.

There was no sobbing for Britain's Andy Murray at Wimbledon this time — on Sunday he made tennis No. 1 Roger Federer run around the court like a ballboy.

Murray won the Olympic gold medal on an ace, beating Federer 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 on the same court where just last month, Murray had been in tears over losing the Wimbledon final to the Swiss tennis legend.

As relief washed over Murray's face, he bounded into the stands to hug his girlfriend, his close supporters, and of course, his mom.
