WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Roger Federer and Andy Murray are tied after two sets in the first Wimbledon singles final to be played under a roof.

The match began in sunshine Sunday, but rain forced a 40-minute delay at 1-all in the third set, and the retractable roof on Centre Court was then closed. The roof was added in 2009.

Murray broke twice in the first set Sunday, which he won 6-4. The only break in the second set came in the final game, which Federer won 7-5.

Federer was trying to add to his record 16 Grand Slam championships, and tie a record by winning Wimbledon for a seventh time. Murray was trying to become the first British man to win a major title since 1936.
