2012 Wimbledon Live TV Schedule: Roger Federer Looking For Seventh Wimbledon Final Against Andy Murray

The 2012 men's final at Wimbledon features the No. 4 seeded Andy Murray and No. 3 seeded Roger Federer. Murray will be the crowd favorite since he is from Great Britain and is the first to make it to a final at Wimbledon since 1938. If he is able to defeat Federer he would then be the first Brit to win their championship since Fred Perry did so back in 1936.

Murray made it this far be getting past the No. 5 seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the semifinals, and he started of strong to take the first two sets. Tsonga did make things interesting to win the third, but in the end it was Murray who won in four sets by a score of 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 7-5.

As for Federer, he is also looking to make history if he can defeat Murray and win his seventh Wimbledon title. If that can be done then Federer would tie Pete Sampras for the most titles at Wimbledon in the Open Era.

The men's final can be seen live Saturday July 8 on ESPN at 8 a.m. CT, the WatchESPN app and Live @ Wimbledon.
