The men's final at Wimbledon will feature two great tennis players looking to accomplish very different goals.

Andy Murray and Roger Federer have both made spectacular runs to the final and will meet in a match that promises to be an instant classic.

For Murray, he has the chance to finally become a Grand Slam champion, which is a goal he's come close to reaching in the past but has come up short each time. Now, he's as close as he's ever been, making his first appearance in a Wimbledon final.

Murray has also done something that no British man has done in nearly three-quarters of a century.

His opponent is very accustomed to winning, especially at this tournament. Federer has proven his critics wrong on the road to the final, and after his semifinal victory over top-ranked Novak Djokovic, the Swiss star can add a seventh Wimbledon title to his resume. A victory over Murray would also allow Federer to break his own record for the most Grand Slam singles titles ever with 17.

Both men may never get a better chance to win a Grand Slam title.

At age 30, Federer probably won't get too many more opportunities to play in a Grand Slam final against someone not named Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic.

Murray has been unable to overcome Federer, Djokovic and Nadal at Grand Slam tournaments and come out victorious. He's been to three previous Grand Slam finals in his career, twice losing to Federer (2008 U.S. Open, 2010 Australian Open) and once to Nadal (2011 Australian Open).

Let's look at all the information you need so you don't miss a second of the men's final at Wimbledon.
