 Back in a Grand Slam final for the 11th time, Andy Murray - for once - won't be facing either Roger Federer or Novak Djokovic for the title.

Murray goes up against Milos Raonic, the big-serving Canadian playing in his first major final.

The second-seeded Murray is chasing his third Grand Slam title, to go with his 2012 U.S. Open and 2013 Wimbledon championships. Murray has a 2-8 record in major finals, including a three-match losing streak in Grand Slam title matches.

The sixth-seeded Raonic is bidding to become the first player representing Canada to win a Grand Slam title. He would also be the first player other than Federer, Djokovic, Murray or Rafael Nadal to win Wimbledon since Lleyton Hewitt in 2002.
