In what should be a thrilling semi-final at Wimbledon on Friday, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer go head to head on centre court for a place in Sunday’s final, as Bet365 offer free bets and a live stream service, as they report plenty of support for Roger Federer to once again reach a Grand Slam final.
This match sees the defending Champion, Djokovic, come up against the man with six Wimbledon titles to his name – Federer. Those in attendance are in for a treat, that’s for sure.
Going into this semi-final, there is no doubt that Djokovic is the favourite. He is the best player in the world right now and in many ways, his performances in this tournament have left people wondering how he can be stopped.
The World No.1 was particularly majestic in the quarter-finals and he seems to be going through the gears as the tournament progresses. He always seems relaxed too, which given the pressure he is under, is a remarkable attribute.
If anyone can stop Djokovic though, Federer is the man – particularly on grass. He may not have won at Wimbledon since 2009, but this is still his second home.
The World No.3 appears to be in fine form too. He breezed through his quarter-final match and should be extremely fresh for this one. However, given the capabilities of Djokovic, Federer will have to raise his game to another level.
These two players definitely have a respect for each other and this will come across in their focus. Whoever gets the early advantage could be crucial, so regular unforced errors in the early stages will not be welcome for either player.
In terms of their head to head record, Federer has 13 wins to Djokovic’s 12, so there isn’t much to choose between them. This is their first ever meeting on grass though, so who knows what could happen.
One thing is for certain – it could be a SW19 classic.
