Are you ready for the pinnacle of Wimbledon? The semi-finals takes place on Friday, July 6. There’s no time to waste, so let’s get right to it! Federer is scheduled to play Djokovic in their 27th time playing one another – but their first match at Wimbledon. The pressure is on.
Federer leads Djokovic 14-12 and was quoted as saying to the media, “It is our first grass-court match. We don’t know quite what to expect. I feel it’s a bit of an even ground.” The expected nemesis for both players was Rafael Nadal, who was eliminated in the second round – a shocker for tennis.
