Roger Federer and Andy Murray have set up for an epic clash in the 2012 Wimbledon final. The two have crushed the competition at the All England Club, and a unique final awaits us.

The fabled grass courts of Wimbledon have hosted a great tournament, but the best action in London is yet to come.

Here is your complete viewing information for the best match of tennis to be played at Wimbledon.

 

How They Got Here

Federer didn't have a tough road until he hit the semifinals, beating only two players in the top 30. However, his semifinal match against World No. 1 Novak Djokovic was considered to be the determinant of who would win Wimbledon, and Fed won in four sets.

Murray's path has been filled with obstacles, having to face No. 7 David Ferrer and No. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, not to mention No. 16 Marin Cilic. He has beaten them all, however, and has dropped only four sets in the process.

 

Past Wimbledon Success

There couldn't be a starker contrast in past Wimbledon success for these two.

Fed has won an incredible six Wimbledon titles and is seeking his seventh. Murray, however, has never won a Wimbledon title or even a Grand Slam title. This is currently the farthest he has ever made it.

History on the Line

Both players will be looking to ink their names in the history book  on Sunday.

Federer is seeking his seventh Wimbledon title, which would tie him for the most all-time. Coming just weeks after Rafael Nadal won his seventh French Open title (the most in history), his rival will look to win his seventh in London.

Murray, however, has the hopes of a nation riding on his back. He would be the first Brit to win it all at Wimbledon since 1936 when Fred Perry did so. It's been over seven decades, and it may be time for a hometown hero to win it all at the All England Club.

 

Head-to-Head History

Surprisingly, Murray has gotten the best of Federer in their head-to-head history, going 8-7 all-time. However, he has lost the last two meetings. Fed looks to even the series, while Murray looks to extend his lead.

 

TV Schedule

Date Time (EDT) Round Channel
Sunday, July 8 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Men's Final ESPN

ESPN3 will also be streaming the action online.

 

Prediction

The reemergence of Roger Federer makes him look like the Fed of old. He is playing like he did when he won six Wimbledon titles, and I think he will win another. Murray will play well, but the Brit cannot top a member of the big three.

Final Score: Federer wins in four sets.
