In Friday's second semifinal at The Championships at Wimbledon, No. 4 Andy Murray downed No. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in four sets to advance to the championship, where Roger Federer waits. Murray becomes the first British man to reach the finals since 1938. And if he were to win on Sunday, Murray would be Britain's first men's champion at Wimbledon since 1936, when Fred Perry accomplished the feat.
Murray started strong, taking the first two sets from Tsonga, 6-3, 6-4, but the Frenchman battled back to win the third set, 6-3. His comeback efforts proved futile, however, as Murray took the fourth and decisive set, 7-5. For Tsonga, it marks the second straight year he has gone out in the semifinals (he fell to Novak Djokovic in 2011).
Federer -- aiming for his seventh Wimbledon title, a mark that would tie him for most all-time in the open-era with Pete Sampras -- will take on Murray in Sunday's championship.
