Federer Set to Play Record Eighth Wimbledon Final

Roger Federer reached his record eighth Wimbledon final today, beating defending champion Novak Djokovic in four sets.

In their 27th meeting but first on grass, the six-time champion defeated Djokovic 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 and is now one victory away from equalling two other records in an already record-laden career.

If Federer beats either Andy Murray or Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Sunday’s final, he will equal Pete Sampras’ record of seven Wimbledon titles, a mark he shares with 1880s player William Renshaw. He would also take over the No. 1 ranking from Djokovic and equal Sampras’ record of 286 weeks as the top-ranked player.

Murray and Tsonga will play in the other semifinal. Neither has won a Grand Slam title yet while Federer is aiming for his 17th.
