LONDON (AP) - Britain has its first Wimbledon men's champion since Fred Perry in 1936.

 

Andy Murray ended the 77-year drought by beating top seed Novak Djokovic 6-4, 7-5, 6-4. The victory comes a year after Murray was beaten by seven-time champ Roger Federer.

 

Murray made things interesting in the final game as he was forced to deuce after having triple-championship point. Murray later fought off three break points before finally knocking off Djokovic, who was seeking his second Wimbledon crown in three years.
