Federer beats Murray for 7th Wimbledon title

London: Roger Federer came back from a set down to record a 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 victory over Andy Murray Sunday for his seventh Wimbledon title and 17th career Grand Slam.

As the roof was closed early in the third set, Federer gave Murray little chance to end Britain’s 76-year wait for a home-grown champion.

Sunday’s match was the first Wimbledon singles final to be played with the roof closed. The roof was first used at the All England Club in 2009.

Federer is now 17-7 in Grand Slam finals, including 7-1 at Wimbledon. Murray dropped to 0-4 in major finals, with three of those losses coming against Federer.
