Federer Wins Third Set of Wimbledon Final, Leads Murray 2-1

Roger Federer took the third set against Andy Murray in today’s men’s singles final at Wimbledon to take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five match.

The Swiss player, who is seeking to secure a first Grand Slam tennis title since the 2010 Australian Open, leads 4-6, 7-5, 6-3 on Centre Court at the All England Club in London.

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

There was a 40-minute rain delay early in the third set and the match is set to be completed under cover after organizers decided to close the retractable roof.
