It’s not every day that you witness a Brit participating in the Wimbledon finals, let alone standing triumphant as the winner. But this is what is at stake on Sunday as the top ranked tennis players in the world square off at center court for what promises to be an excellent finals match.
Both players worked hard to get here. Djokovic had to pull out a 5 setter with two tiebreakers to put del Potro away while British son Andy Murray had to overcome a break in his rhythm.
Murray was on a serious roll rallying to break serve and win a set when his opponent Jerzy Janowicz started to complain that he was having trouble picking up the ball because it was getting dark. Murray complained to officials that there was easily 45 minutes left of day light. But these pleads went unanswered and both players had to depart the court as the roof began its slow retracting.
Murray came out from the break with his rhythm still strong and took care of business beating Janowicz and punching his ticket to the Wimbledon finals on Sunday.
The 2013 Wimbledon Finals promises to be grand. Both men have pretty good records against each other with Murray winning it at the U.S. Open and Djokovic taking home the Australian Open.
So what time does the Andy Murray Novak Djokovic Wimbledon finals match start?
