And it was Roger Federer who swooped over the semis and Djokovic with a  6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 on Friday. He is now the first to reach the Wimbledon finals 8 times. In a game that lasted an hour and 20 minutes, the center court was certainly the center of attention as two world-class players put out their best on clay.

This was third-seed Federer’s 24th Grand Slam final and it took all the more strength, stamina and spirit to beat the crowd favorite, Djokovic. He is now just a victory away from coming to equal with Pete Sampras’s record of holding 7 titles. And even though Federer is well aware of the fact that his next match will have high hopes riding on it, he is content with the semi finals win.

Even though the crowd was leaning more on Djokovic’s side, they all cheered up as soon as they saw the 31 year old finish the game and give out a well-heard exclamation of satisfaction.

“It’s always nice beating someone like Novak, who has done so well here last year, the last couple years.”

The other semi finals is between Andy Murray and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and the finals will take place on Sunday.

“I played a great match. It has been a tough tournament for me. I was able to step it up and get a bit lucky maybe. I thought Novak played well too, the first two sets went really quickly and the third was key to the match.”

Sunday’s final had to wait for 3 long years as Federer’s sixth title was back in the year 2009. Shall he win on Sunday, not only will he equal the title with Sampras but also replace Djokovic in the No 1 spot. He is currently on world number three position.

Federer agreed that there will be a good amount of pressure on Sunday’s game but he also said that, that is what he plays for.

Djokovic was disappointed obviously but he did not deny the fact that he was ready for it all, playing against Roger Federer.

“Obviously that’s what you expect when you play against Roger at the final four of a Grand Slam. I knew that.”
