Another win at Wimbledon would put Roger Federer back on top of the tennis world with the No. 1 ranking once again. But his opponent, Andy Murray has the weight of a nation on his shoulders as he has his chance to become the first British man to win the men's singles title at Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936. Since bringing on Ivan Lendl as coach earlier this year, Murray plays with more focus and is a much tougher opponent than years past. But, at 30, Federer has regained the form that has earned him six previous titles at Wimbledon. Who will win?
2012 Wimbledon men's final 1 2 3 4 5 3 Roger Federer 2 4 Andy Murray 2 Set 1 Game 4: Murray starts off going up 40-15 with a short angle forcing Federer to hit long. But soon finds himself at deuce #2 when Federer hits to the deep deuce corner to get the advanatage and a shot into the net allows Federer to break and tie it up 2-2.
Game 3: Federer seems to be finding his way, making his shots in the corner baseline. But Murray isn't phased. On a deuce point, Murray hits the ball into the net giving Federer the advantage. And Federer takes an overhead to Murray who puts another into the net to get Federer on the board.
Game 2: Murray dictates the play, putting Federer on the run forcing a few errors from the six-time Champion to take a 2-0 lead.
Game 1: Federer won the coin toss and will serve first. Murray jumps out early and breaks Federer, contesting an ace along the way.
BEST OF MAXIM
Federer’s Keys to Victory:
1. Serve well- For Federer, it might not all end with the serve, but it definitely all starts with it. It might not be the biggest, but Federer still has one of the best serves on tour. Even a great returner like Djokovic couldn’t do much against Federer’s serve when it was on in the semifinals. Federer is not a player who will win a match by relying...

Hope turned to disappointment one more time for Andy Murray and British tennis.
Murray stood closer to the Wimbledon title Sunday than any British man had in three-quarters of a century, two sets away from ending one of the longest waits in British sports.
But he also stood across the net from Roger Federer, who knows better than anyone how to win on Centre Court, and who wasn...
Jo Wilfried Tsonga took a pretty hard shot from Andy Murray directly to his man bits during their match at Wimbledon on Friday. The only thing that made this video better was the fan who yelled “New Balls, Please” after it happened. Poor guy.

Roger Federer isn’t finished yet. The six-time Wimbledon champ took out defending champ Novak Djokovic to get to his record 8th final at Wimbledon with the chance to tie Pete Sampras and his seven titles.
I have a confession to make: I’m an Andy Murray fan. I first became enamored with the talented Scot at the All England Club in 2008. He was two sets down and a break to another enigmatic competitor, the Frenchman Richard Gasquet, and looked like he’d go down quietly in three disappointing sets. Whether it was the Wimbledon crowd, Murray’s newfound dedication to fitness, or...
