Roger Federer needed four sets to deal with World No. 1 and defending champ, Novak Djokovic, and book a place in his eighth Wimbledon final.
It was the 27th head-to-head match for the tennis greats and their first ever meeting on grass.
Six-time Wimbledon champion Federer, proved he’s more comfortable with the surface than his Serb rival, taking the opener 6-3.
Djokovic’s reply was a strong one as he hammered the Swiss in the second set 6-0, but seems to have given too much strength and emotion in process.
Third-seed Federer produced a solid game, winning two sets in a row to come out as 6-3 0-6 6-4 6-3 winner.
And there was even more than the Wimbledon final on the line, with the Swiss player knowing he’ll replace Djokovic as World No.1 if he grabs his seventh title at the All England Club on Sunday.
Britain’s favorite, Andy Murray, will face Federer in the decider after topping Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France in the other semifinal.
The Scotsman took two sets in a row at the start of the match, but his opponent returned to the game in the third.
The fourth set saw the most heated battle, with Murray coming from behind to wrap up a 6-3 6-4 3-6 7-5 victory and a place in his first-ever Wimbledon final.
