Federer Wins Second Set of Wimbledon Final to Tie With Murray

Roger Federer took the second set against Andy Murray in today’s men’s singles final at Wimbledon to tie the match as he attempts to secure a first Grand Slam title since the 2010 Australian Open.

The Swiss player won the set 7-5 on Centre Court at the All England Club in London after Murray took the opener 6-4. He is aiming for a record-extending 17th men’s Grand Slam tennis title.

Murray, competing in his first Wimbledon final, will end Britain’s 76-year wait for a male Grand Slam champion if he wins today.
