Wimbledon 2012: Roger Federer Wins For A Record-Tying 7th Time

Englishman Andy Murray was looking to become the first English man to win Wimbledon since 1936, while Roger Federer was eyeing his incredible 7th Wimbledon title on a soggy Sunday at the All England Club. And with the roof closed on Centre Court the tennis gods once again smiled down on Federer as he bested Murray in four sets for a 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 victory.

The victory marks the 17th career grand slam title for the 30-year-old Federer, tying the mark set by Pete Sampras and William Renshaw at the All England Club.

"It's amazing," Federer said in the postmatch ceremony. "It equals me to Pete Sampras, who's my hero. It's just amazing."

Federer is now 17-7 in Grand Slam finals, while imporving his mark at Wimbledon to 7-1. Murray dropped to 0-4 in major finals, with three of those coming against Federer.

"Everybody always talks about the pressure of Wimbledon, how tough it is," said an emotional Murray, who, microphone in hand, needed nearly a minute to compose himself before speaking. "But it's not for the people watching. The support's been incredible. So thank you."

Many of England's finest were on hand to possibly see Murray make history, such as Prince William's wife, Kate, David Beckham, British Prime Minister David Cameron and a number of former Wimbledon champions sat in the sat Royal Box. Unfortunately many of them left unsatisfied.
