Roger Federer v Novak Djokovic

Three in a row for Djokovic over Federer?

The Serb has Federer’s number in Wimbledon finals, having defeated him in 2014 and 2015. The world number one beat Kevin Anderson in last year’s showpiece – his fourth SW19 title – and is determined to beat all of Federer’s records. Will those two defeats at the All England Club play on the Swiss’ mind?

Can Federer move clear in the grand slam list?

A ninth Wimbledon title would move Federer further clear at the top of the all-time grand slam singles list. The 37-year-old currently has 20 to his name, two more than Rafael Nadal and five clear of Djokovic. Moving six ahead of Djokovic would hamper the top seed’s quest to topple Federer.

Brit watch

No Brits have made it to the final day of the Championships, with Arthur Fery and Toby Samuel losing in the boys’ doubles semi-finals on Saturday.
