Andy Murray Beats Novak Djokovic, Advances To Gold Medal Final

After Roger Federer found his way to a final at Wimbledon after a marathon game against Juan Martin Del Potro at the 2012 Olympics on Friday, Andy Murray decided to join him and set up a rematch at the All England Club.

Murray defeated Novak Djokovic in straight sets, 7-5, 7-5, to move on to his first Olympic gold medal final in his first Olympic appearance. It'll be a rematch of his emotional loss to Federer in the 2012 Wimbledon final, which ended in Murray giving a tearful speech to the crowd in attendance.

On Friday, Murray called his win over Djokovic "The most emotional match I've ever played." He might want to get ready for another one, as he goes for gold against the king of Wimbledon in front of what is sure to be a raucous crowd.
