Wimbledon 2012: Andy Murray To Meet Roger Federer In Final

On Friday, the final for the 2012 Wimbledon tournament was cemented when Andy Murray defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 7-5, to become the first British man since 1938 to reach the final round of the championship. If he is able to pull out one more win, Murray will become the first British male to win the tournament since Fred Perry accomplished the feat in 1936.

Murray will face Roger Federer, who will be competing in his record eighth final at the All England Club. Federer is 6-1 all-time in the final and will have the opportunity to become the No. 1 ranked men's tennis player in the world if he is victorious on Sunday.

In addition, he would also tie Pete Sampras for most all-time titles at Wimbledon with seven.
