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.
