Wimbledon 2012: Roger Federer, Andy Murray Advance To Men's Final

It was another epic day of tennis action at the All England Club as the men's semifinal matches got underway this morning. There was a bit of rain to deal with, but the four men left standing were determined to get the job done.

Roger Federer was looking to get back to the finals for the eighth time in his career, but the first time in the past few years. Novak Djokovic on the other hand was trying to continue his dominance as of late, but unforutantely was not enough as Federer advanced with a 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 victory. Centre court had it's retractable roof closed for the match.

The win improved Federer's semifinal record to 8-0 at Wimbledon. His only loss in the final came in 2008 to Rafael Nadal.

On the other side of the coin is Englishman Andy Murray, whom the locals at Wimbledon have been dying see win at the All England Club. He took down Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in a riveting match of 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 7-5. He is looking to become the first Brit to win the event since way back when in 1936. They had to wait for the weather to clear to play outdoors, but had no problems once the match began.
