Federer thrash Nadal, reaches 12th Wimbledon final

Federer defeats Nadal, face in 12th Wimbledon final against Djokovic.






Roger Federer will play for a record-extending ninth Wimbledon title in his 12 final at the All England Club after beating Rafael Nadal 7-6 (3), 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 on Centre Court.

The 20-time Grand Slam singles champion will face Novak Djokovic for the Wimbledon men singles title on Sunday.

 Federer has won a record eight Wimbledon titles. Nadal has two, and beat Federer in the 2008 final, 
He won his record eighth Wimbledon title in 2017, but lost to Djokovic in the final in both 2014 and 2015.

 Federer’s serve served him well against his Spanish rival, who won their last meeting at Wimbledon in the 2008 final — taking the epic fifth set 9-7 as darkness descended. The Swiss great finished with 14 aces this time and landed 69% of his first serves.

 Novak Djokovic has reached the Wimbledon final for the sixth time.

 The defending champion came through a tough match against Roberto Bautista Agut on Centre Court 6-2, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.

 With the victory, Djokovic has reached his 25th Grand Slam final. He won 15 of the previous 24.

 In the Wimbledon final, Djokovic is 4-1. His only loss was against Andy Murray in 2013.



Roger Federer quote:






"I'm exhausted. It was tough - at the end Rafa played some unbelievable shots to stay in the match," Federer told BBC Sport.
 "I had spells where I was serving very well and probably the biggest points in the match went my way.
 "That first set was huge, to get the lead and try to protect it. It was a joy to play."
