Six-time Grand Slam winner Djokovic progressed into the final of the major event at SW19 for the third time in four years at the expense of Grigor Dimitrov. The 27-year-old overcame the 11th seeded Bulgarian after four sets, 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (2), 7-6 (7), needing just over three hours.

The 23-year-old had stunned defending champion Andy Murray in the quarterfinal and nearly forced a fifth set in the semi-final. But the World No 2 saved three set points while trailing 3-6 in the tiebreaker and recovered to clinch the match on Friday.

Meanwhile, Federer had little trouble in the previous round against Milos Raonic and sent the Canadian packing in straight sets 6-4, 6-4, 6-4. The 17-time Grand Slam winner sealed his victory in 101 minutes to reach his ninth final at the All England Club.

The 32-year-old Swiss maestro has lifted the title eight times and will be eyeing a record eighth title. The Serbian too has been crowned champion here once in 2011 after beating World No 1, Rafael Nadal. He was denied his second title last year by the home favourite, Murray, who won in straight sets.

Sunday's clash will be his 35th match between the two gentlemen and the ninth time in the final of all tournaments. An exciting final is on the cards and both the big four players will be keen on adding to their Grand Slam tally.


Federer holds a narrow 18-16 lead over Djokovic in overall meetings. In the 11 clashes between the pair at Grand Slam events, the world no 4 has won six times.

But in the last five matches between them, Djokovic holds a 3-2 lead.

What They Say

Novak Djokovic: "This is where he has the most success in his career, winning many titles. He's been looking very good throughout the whole tournament, very dominant with his matches. I'm sure that he wants to win this title as much as I do. Most of the matches we played against each other went the distance, so I am going to be physically ready and fit to go the distance. But it's a good chance for me to try to win against him on his favourite surface, on his favourite court."

Roger Federer: "I'm extremely happy to be in another final. We always play good matches against each other. We've played each other a lot the past six months, and it's gone back and forth a bit. Novak is a great champion; he's used to these occasions. He's won here before and knows how to get it done. It's really important for me to stay aggressive against him, and especially here at Wimbledon. Novak can hurt you down the line or cross-court on both sides. I hope it's going to be a good match."
