London Olympics tennis: Andy Murray defeats Djokovic, to face Federer in final

Wimbledon, England: Britain`s Andy Murray clinched a silver medal on Friday and advanced to the Olympic final as he defeated No. 2-seeded Djokovic of Serbia 7-5, 7-5.

With the win, the No. 3-seeded Murray earned a rematch Sunday against No. 1 Roger Federer, who won when they met on the same court in the Wimbledon final a month ago. That dropped Murray`s record in Grand Slam finals to 0-4.

Murray held all 12 of his service games and broke once in each set. When he ripped his final shot at Djokovic`s feet for a winner, the partisan Centre Court crowd responded with a roar.

Djokovic will play Juan Martin del Potro on Sunday for the bronze. The Serb won the bronze in 2008.
