2012 Wimbledon Championships: Roger Federer, Andy Murray Battle In Men's Final

Play has begun Sunday morning in the 2012 Wimbledon Men's Final at the All England Club, where Brit Andy Murray is looking to accomplish a feat 70 years in the making against Roger Federer. Murray currently leads 5-4 in the first set. 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.
