2012 Wimbledon Championships Men's Final: Roger Federer Sinks Andy Murray In Four Sets

Andy Murray's bid to become first British Wimbledon champion in seven decades came to an end Sunday in the Men's Final, as he fell to Rodger Federer in four sets, 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4.

Murray came out hot winning the first set, however Federer took the next three with unbelievable play that could not be matched. The match was marred by a brief rain delay in the third set, to which Federer took the majority of the games afterward.

This is the seventh Wimbledon title for Federer and the 17th Grand Slam title in his career. He now has 75 career victories between Grand Slam and ATP World Tour events.
