Murray Tries for British Breakthrough at Wimbledon
WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- The Brits know how to stage a coronation, and they'll do so on grass Sunday for either regal Roger Federer or one of their own, Andy Murray.

Queen Elizabeth II has another commitment, but the former Kate Middleton and the British prime minister will be on hand to see who reigns at Wimbledon.

Plenty of history will be written in the men's final at tennis' most tradition-rich tournament. Federer can add to his record 16 Grand Slam championships, and he would tie a record by winning Wimbledon for a seventh time.

Murray, meanwhile, is merely trying to become the first British man to win a Grand Slam title since Fred Perry took Wimbledon and the U.S. Championships in 1936.
