Roger Federer easily beat Milos Raonic 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 at the All England Club on Friday and will meet Novak Djokovic in the final.
Not only would a victory on Sunday’s final allow the Swiss to win his eighth Wimbledon title but also leave him with a record 18 Grand Slam championships.
Canada-born Milos Raonic reached the semifinal after defeating Nick Kyrgios, 19. The Australian had eliminated world No. 1 Rafael Nadal from the tournament.
However, Raonic’s big serve was not enough to beat Federer, who only needed less than two hours to win in straight sets.
“I am unbelievably proud every time I can walk to the grounds and play this tournament,” said Federer talking to the media. “To have another chance to go through these emotions is an unbelievable thrill.” he added.
Djokovic needed more than three hours to defeat Bulgaria-born Grigor Dimitrov 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (2), 7-6 (7). Djokovic could reclaim the top spot in the ATP rankings from Rafael Nada if he manages to prevail in the final scheduled to be played on Sunday.
