Wimbledon Men's Final 2012 Results: Roger Federer Beats Andy Murray To Collect 7th Wimbledon Championship

The 2012 Wimbledon Tournament concluded Sunday, as Roger Federer defeated Andy Murray 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 to collect his 7th Wimbeldon crown. The victory helped Federer tie Pete Sampras' all-time mark of championships at the All England Club and added to his total of major championship -- which now sits at a record 17.

The runner-up, Murray, failed to become the first British-born player to win on the hometown grass surface in decades. However, his effort was rewarded with cheers from fans, who didn't see an historic upset but did see history. The support led to Murray breaking down during his runner-up speech and leaving the court with a standing ovation.

On Monday, Federer will regain the world's No. 1 ranking, a title he hasn't held since June of 2010.

Wimbledon Men's Final 2012 Update: Roger Federer Vs. Andy Murray Match Delayed By Rain, Tied At One Set Apiece

After two exciting sets of tennis, the Wimbledon Men's Final between Roger Federer and Andy Murray is about to resume after a 30-minute rain delay. The match, which currently is tied at one set apiece, was delayed after rain began to fall at the All England Club and the roof had to be closed.

Murray, Britain's hometown favorite, took the match's first set 6-4, but Federer, the six-time champion, answered with a second-set victory of 7-5. The third set was put on hold as it was tied at one game apiece and Federer leading the third game 40-0.

So far, the match has lived up to the hype as both players are playing at a very high level. Of course, Murray is trying to become the first British-born player to win the tournament in decades, while Federer is trying to tie Pete Sampras' Wimbeldon titles total of seven.
