Murray takes 1st set 6-4 in Wimbledon final
LONDON (AP) — Andy Murray took the first set 6-4 over Novak Djokovic on Sunday in the Wimbledon final.
Both players struggled a bit on serve, with Murray breaking Djokovic twice and getting broken once.
Djokovic, the top-seeded Serb who won the 2011 title at the All England Club, was broken to 4-3 and had three chances to get back on serve in the next game. But Murray was able to save them all, including with an ace at 15-40.
Murray is trying to become the first British man to win the Wimbledon title since Fred Perry in 1936. He lost to seven-time champion Roger Federer in last year's final.
Murray and Djokovic are playing each other in a Grand Slam final for third time in the last four majors, with Murray winning last year's U.S. Open and Djokovic taking this year's Australian Open.
