LONDON (AP)

Andy Murray took a two-set lead over Novak Djokovic on Sunday in the Wimbledon final, winning the second 7-5 after taking the first 6-4.

The players traded breaks in the second set, as they did in the first, and Murray again came out on top by breaking a second time.

With the sun beating down on Centre Court, both players wore white caps and sat under umbrellas during changeovers.

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 the third time in the last four majors, with Murray winning last year's U.S. Open and Djokovic taking this year's Australian Open.

Djokovic, the top-seeded Serb who won the 2011 title at the All England Club, has won the last three matches between the two.
