2012 Wimbledon Championships: Andy Murray Becomes First British Man To Reach Finals Since 1938

The Finals for the 2012 Men's Wimbledon Championship are set and it looks to be a thrilling finish to this exciting tournament. Andy Murray emerged victorious from an exciting four set match against No. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, 6-3. 6-4, 3-6, 7-5, to become the first British man to reach the Wimbledon finals since Bunny Austin reached the finals in 1938.

Murray is looking to be the first British man to win the Wimbledon championship since Fred Perry in 1936. By way of comparison, two British women have won the Wimbledon championship in the Open Era, Ann Haydon Jones in 1969 and Virginia Wade in 1977.

Murray faces stiff competition in his quest to win at Wimbledon, as he will face Roger Federer in the finals. He defeated top seed Novak Djokovic in the other semifinal 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3. Murray has lost twice to Federer in grand slam finals, once in the 2008 US Open and in the 2010 Australian Open.

The men's championship will be broadcast on ESPN starting at 9 a.m.

Wimbledon 2012 Scores: Rafael Nadal Out After Shocking Loss To Lukas Rosol

Rafael Nadal has been eliminated in the second round at Wimbledon by little-known, big-serving Czech Lukas Rosol. Nadal won the first set in a tiebreak, but his struggle to win points on Rosol's first serve and to easily put him away in the tiebreak was a sign of things to come. Rosol's serve dipped a bit in the fourth set, but was otherwise spectacular in his 6-7, 6-4, 6-4, 2-6, 6-4 victory.

Rosol tallied 22 aces in the match, with 11 of them coming in the decisive third set. Nadal wasn't poor by any means, racking up 19 aces himself to go along with a low total of 16 unforced errors for a five-set match, but couldn't match Rosol's power as he played the match of his life. Rosol hit an incredible 65 winners to Nadal's 41 and won 83 percent of points on his first serve.
