Wimbledon

Roger Federer will face Andy Murray in the Men’s Singles Final on Sunday at 7am CDT. Roger Federer defeated Novak Djokovic in four sets to upset the top seed. Federer who has won six Wimbledon titles will attempt to tie Pete Sampras for a record 17th grand slam title. It was clearly an upset as Federer was facing the top seed, but with two quick sets to start off the match, Federer carried momentum in to the third set where he completely took over and easily cruised to the championship match with a 5-2 lead in the fourth set which he would eventually win 6-3. Djokovic was last years champion, and with Rafael Nadal losing in an upset far earlier in the tournament, it created an opening for Federer to get his chance to tie the record.

Djokovic went off as a -270 favorite, which shows how much of a favorite he was. It seems the reigning champion was overmatched by the veteran who had all the experience in the world to compete in such a high profile match on Center Court.

Federer will meet Andy Murray in the final.  Murray defeated Frenchman Jo-Wilfred Tsonga in four sets to advance. Murray is the long-awaited home-country challenger.  The last time a British born player won Wimbledon was Fred Perry in 1936. Perry is also the last British player to win a men’s singles grand slam title with his U.S Open win in the same year.

This should be one of the highest rate matches on television in recent memory.

Will Murray handle the home-country pressure to win on Sunday?

If Federer isn’t the best of all time, who is?
