Andy Murray has made history by becoming the first British man in the Wimbledon Men's Singles Final for 74 years. After a four set victory over Tsonga, he has a final showdown with Federer, on Sunday.

Will he do it? He's gonna have to go some, it will be a cliffhanger of a match .....

It would be nice if he did - the 1st British winner since Fred Perry in 1936.

I´m almost certain Federer will make it.

I would wager 60/40 in his favour, but Murray did brilliantly though, so all credit to him.

Well, the match is about to begin with a tumultuous applause for both players from the Centre Court Audience. I would guess about 75% of the UK are glued to their screens, I do so hope they won't be disappointed ....

Murray was told to get out there and go for it and takes an early lead, but if he peaks too soon, and Federer holds back, he'll trounce him in the closing stages :-(

Rain stopped play and the roof is being closed. I live 4.5 miles from Wimbledon and the sky is black!

Federer won as was expected, but Murray did well and didn't disgrace himself. Closing the roof favoured Federer.
