Roger Federer reached his 12th Wimbledon final on Friday, defeating old rival Rafael Nadal in one of his favourite ever matches, 11 years after he lost their epic 2008 title showdown at the All England Club, a match widely regarded as the greatest ever played.
The 37-year-old eight-time champion won 7-6 (7/3), 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 in the pair’s 40th career meeting to move into his 31st Grand Slam final where he will face defending champion Novak Djokovic.
It is the first Wimbledon final between the top two men’s seeds since Djokovic and Federer met in 2015.
The pair are meeting for the 48th time in their illustrious careers – only Djokovic and Nadal have played more often.
The final will be played today at 6 PM PST at Wimbledon.
