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.
