Roger Federer and Andy Murray have split the first two sets of the Wimbledon final.
Murray broke twice in the first set Sunday, which he won 6-4. The only break in the second set came in the final game, which Federer won 7-5, and the match was briefly halted by rain at 1-all in the third set.
The retractable Centre Court roof was then closed.
Both missed chances early, with Federer converting two of five break-point opportunities through two sets, and Murray converting two of six.
Federer was trying to add to his record 16 Grand Slam championships, and tie a record by winning Wimbledon for a seventh time. Murray was trying to become the first British man to win a major title since 1936.
