Wimbledon Final: And Federer Wins...

Roger Federer secured a record-equalling seventh Wimbledon title to dash the hopes of Andy Murray and a partisan Centre Court crowd.

Federer made it 17 Grand Slam titles to his name after a two-year drought and matched the haul of American Pete Sampras at the All England Club.

The Swiss will return to the top of the world rankings as a result of his 4-6 7-5 6-3 6-4 victory.

For Murray, the first Briton to reach a men's singles final at Wimbledon in 74 years, it represented his fourth defeat in major finals, his pain acutely felt by a fervent crowd at Wimbledon.

Federer's triumph was his first at Wimbledon since 2009, his last major win coming at the Australian Open in 2010, when he also beat Murray.
