WIMBLEDON, England -

Andy Murray became the first British man in 77 years to win the Wimbledon title, beating Novak Djokovic 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 in Sunday's final.

The last British man to win the Wimbledon title before Sunday was Fred Perry in 1936.

Murray, who lost to Roger Federer in last year's final (but returned to Wimbledon a few weeks later to win the Olympic gold), won his second major title after last year's U.S. Open.

Murray and Djokovic played each other in a Grand Slam final for third time in the last four majors, with Murray winning the 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, had won the last three matches between the two and still holds an 11-8 head-to-head edge.
