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.
