Roger Federer beats Novak Djokovic 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 to reach the Wimbledon final!
Federer wins a the first point with a big second serve. As you do. No bother. But Djokovic won’t go away, won’t lie down, and makes it 15-all, his drop-shot clipping the net cord. On the next point, Federer smashes a forehand into the corner and then races forward for the smash. 30-15. But the first serves aren’t landing and a wide forehand – an anxious forehand – makes it 30-all.
A Djokovic return is called out – but he challenges and it’s just in! Another first serve for Federer and this time Djokovic can’t get it back. He challenges the serve, but it was in and Federer has match point! He’s wasted so many against Djokovic in the past.
What must be going through his head? Will he choke again? Give over.
His first serve returns at the right time, and Djokovic has no riposte, slapping a forehand into the net! That’s it! Federer is in his eighth Wimbledon final against either Andy Murray or Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Sunday. What a player.
