TENNIS: Roger Federer beats Raphael Nadal in four sets to reach his 12th Wimbledon final

This evening, Roger Federer defeated Rafael Nadal, 7-6 (3), 1-6, 6-3, 6-4, to reach his 12th Wimbledon final.
He will face Novak Djokovic, the top seed and defending champion, in the final on Sunday. Federer, 37, has won eight Wimbledon singles titles. If he wins on Sunday, he will tie Martina Navratilova’s open era record of nine. "I'm exhausted. It was tough at the end Rafa played some unbelievable shots to stay in the match. 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" Federer told BBC Sport.
Defending champion Djokovic, 32, goes for his 16th Grand Slam triumph after beating Spain's 23rd seed Roberto Bautista Agut in four sets earlier on Friday. |
