Wimbledon Men's Singles Final: Federer vs. Djokovic Battle of Giants

The world's best two tennis players, Federer and Djokovic, meet for a battle of giants at the Men's Singles finals at Wimbledon (14:00 UK time).

The Wimbledon Men's Singles final that many have fantasized about has become reality yet again. For the second year in a row, Roger Federer (No. 2) meets Novak Djokovic (No. 1) for a battle on the tennis world's most prestigious trophy (14:00 UK time).

Payback Time for Federer?

Federer's hopes for an eighth Wimbledon final were spoiled by Djokovic last year, in the midst of a successful run which signaled a possible return for the top Swiss player who was looking for a comeback. The two have met once before in a Grand Slam final, back in the 2007 US Open final where Federer won in his prime. At age 33, today will present Federer with a golden opportunity to shine once more, and serve Djokovic with a nice revenge.

Biggest Challenge for Djokovic

A sportive player, Djokovic expressed his utmost respect for Federer ahead of today's match while speaking to Wimbledon press. "Roger is one of the people that made me a better player … He’s so good and so consistent. He is the greatest ever. There’s not enough praise for what he does. This is where he plays his best tennis I think. It's probably going to be the biggest challenge I can have."

But Djokovic is keeping his cards close to the chest - highly competitive and able to withstand hard physical trials, he will fight hard to gain his third Wimbledon title.

Close Match

As is usually the case with Wimbledon finals, today's game summons a meeting that could very easily become a classic – and a very long one at that. The head to head statistics between these two fantastic players shows just how tightly matched they are: Federer won 20 times against 19 times Djokovic won in their 39 meetings. Will Djokovic even the numbers?
