This was the first Wimbledon final from 11 where Murray hasn't faced either Djokovic or Federer against whom he has lost eight times.

Earlier, Andy Murray survived a five-set rollercoaster to defeat battling Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-6 (12/10), 6-1, 3-6, 4-6, 6-1 and reach his seventh Wimbledon semi-final in which he would go on to beat Czech 10th seed Tomas Berdych.

Milos Raonic on the other hand became the first Canadian man to reach a Grand Slam final at the majors, in what was the first Wimbledon title match since 2002 not to feature Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal.

25-year-old Raonic had stunned seven-time champion Roger Federer in a titanic five-set struggle to reach the finals.
