U.S. Open 2012 Scores: Andy Murray Wins Second Straight Set, 7-5

Looking for his first ever major championship, Andy Murray has taken the first two sets of the 2012 U.S. Open men's final from defending champion Novak Djokovic on Monday. After battling through the first set, 7-6 (12-10), Murray avoided a tiebreaker in the second set, beating the world's No. 2 player, 7-5.

Murray, the No. 3 player in the world, has never won a Grand Slam tournament despite reaching four previous finals, but he may finally be breaking out. After winning the gold medal in men's singles at the London Olympics, Murray is as close as he's ever been to finally hoisting a major championship trophy.

The last time these two players met in a Grand Slam final, Djokovic easily handled Murray, 6-4, 6-2, 6-3, at the 2011 Australian Open. This time around, it could be Murray taking the Grand Slam victory in three straight sets over his rival.
