Wimbledon, England (Sports Network) - Andy Murray ended Great Britain's 77- year wait for a homegrown men's singles champion at Wimbledon with a straight- set victory over world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in Sunday's final.

The second-seeded Murray took down Djokovic by a 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 margin on Centre Court, giving Britain its first male Wimbledon champion since Fred Perry won in 1936.

Murray, who lost to Roger Federer in last year's final, joined Perry and Bunny Austin as the only British men to reach multiple Wimbledon finals since the knockout format was introduced in 1922.
