Murray beats Federer in first set

Andy Murray, seeking to become the first British man to win the Wimbledon title for 76 years, took the opening set of the final against Roger Federer 6-4 on Sunday.

Murray made a fast start and broke the six-times champion's serve in the opening game of the match but the Swiss broke back to level at 2-2.

Federer mixed up his game to increase the pressure on Murray but the fourth seed dug in and conjured up his second service break in the ninth game before serving out to seal the set in just under an hour.
