Wimbledon 2012: Andy Murray Advances To Final With Win Over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

On Friday afternoon, Andy Murray accomplished something that no British male had done since 1938, when he defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 7-5 to advance to the final round of the 2012 Wimbledon Tournament. If he is able to pull off another victory on Sunday, he will become the first British male to win the Wimbledon Championship since Fred Perry won the tournament in 1936.

However, it will not be an easy task as Roger Federer will be waiting for him in the finals and is one win away from winning his seventh Wimbledon title, recording an all-time 6-1 record in the final. Federer is the only man in history to reach eight finals at the All England Club.

If Federer wins on Sunday, he will also regain the No. 1 ranking in the world.
