LONDON (AP) - It was a straight-set victory but a hard-fought match at Wimbledon today, as Andy Murray beat Novak Djokovic for the men's championship.

Murray is the first British man to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936.

Murray, who lost to Roger Federer in last year's final, 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. The match took three hours and nine minutes and was filled with long, punishing rallies and a final game that saw Murray squander three match points before finally earning the win after four deuces.

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.
