2012 Wimbledon Championships: Roger Federer Vs. Andy Murray In Men's Final

Sunday at the All-England Club is shaping up to be a historic day, if early play in the men's final is any indication. Britain's Andy Murray is looking to become the first Brit in 70 years to capture the men's championship at Wimbledon, and has begun the day well, winning the first set 6-4 over Roger Federer. The two men are tied 2-2 in the second set currently. Live action can be seen on ESPN.

A 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 7-5 defeat of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the semifinals made Murray the first British man to make the finals since Bunny Austin in 1938. A win by Murray over Federer would be the first Wimbledon men's title by a Brit since Fred Perry in 1936.

Six-time champion Federer reached the final by defeating top seed Novak Djokovic in the other semifinal, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3. Federer has beaten Murray in two other grand slam finals, the 2008 U.S. Open and the 2010 Australian Open.
