Wimbledon Men's Final 2012 Results: Roger Federer Downs Andy Murray To Earn 7th Wimbledon Crown

The people of England wanted to see an upset on Sunday, instead, they witnessed history at the All England Club. Roger Federer defeated Andy Murray 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 in the Wimbeldon Men's Final and earned his seventh crown on the grass surface, a mark that ties him with Pete Sampras for the most all-time.

The victory will also help Federer, 30, reclaim the No. 1 spot in the World Rankings, which come out on Monday.

Meanwhile, Murray failed to become the first British-born player to win the Wimbeldon title in decades. His performance, however, didn't go unnoticed as the hometown tennis fans gave him cheers during his runner-up speech. The support led to Murray breaking down into tears in an emotional movement.

In the end, Federer collects his all-time best 17 major championship and improves his already impressive resume.

Men's Wimbledon Final 2012 Update: Andy Murray, Roger Federer Match Tied, Delayed By Rain

The 2012 Wimbledon Final between Great Britain's Andy Murray and Sweden's Roger Federer is currently being delayed by rain and undergoing a roof-closing process, which will take about 30 minutes. The much anticipated match is tied at one set apiece, as Murray took the first set 6-4, while Federer earned a second set victory of 7-5. The third set is tied at one game apiece with Federer leading 40-0 love in the third game.

The match, which pits the six-time champion (Federer) against hometown hero (Murray), is expected to be delayed for about 30 minutes and will resume around noon ET. The roof at the All England Club had to be closed and then the court then needs to be become climatized, which is a process which helps limit the moisture inside the now enclosed stadium. The positive about the delay is that it will be the only one the Wimbledon Final will encounter and the match will be finished Sunday.
