(Newser) – Andy Roddick reached his third Wimbledon final today in London, beating local hero Andy Murray 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (7), 7-6 (5). Roddick will face five-time champion Roger Federer on Sunday. The American lost to Federer in the 2004 and '05 finals, as well as the '03 semifinals. Murray had been trying to become the first British man to win the title at the All England Club since Fred Perry in 1936.
