2012 U.S. Open Scores: Andy Murray Wins First Set, 7-6

In stunning fashion, Andy Murray took the first set of the 2012 U.S. Open men's final from Novak Djokovic in a tiebreaker, 7-6 (12-10), after Murray held a two-game advantage earlier in the set. Djokovic battled back to put the pressure on, but Murray responded by holding strong in the tiebreaker.

Djokovic, who is looking to win his second consecutive U.S. Open title, stormed back to win three consecutive games after Murray had gone up, 4-2. After Murray tied the set at five games apiece, Djokovic took the last two. The two players engaged in several exciting points, including one in the sixth game that featured a 54-shot rally.

History appears to be on Murray's side; he and Djokovic have had many matches against each other, and the winner of the first set has won the last 13 of them.
