Federer, Murray tied after 2 sets at Wimbledon
Federer, Murray tied at 1 set apiece in Wimbledon final

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) Roger Federer and Andy Murray have split the first two sets of the Wimbledon final.

Murray broke twice in the first set Sunday, which he won 6-4. The only break in the second set came in the final game, which Federer won 7-5.

Both missed chances early, with Federer converting two of five break-point opportunities through two sets, and Murray converting two of six. The finalists waged a succession of long rallies, and Murray held his own against the favored Federer.

Federer was trying to add to his record 16 Grand Slam championships, and tie a record by winning Wimbledon for a seventh time. Murray was trying to become the first British man to win a Grand Slam title since Fred Perry took Wimbledon and the U.S. Championships in 1936.
