Another classic Wimbledon Final will be live online for free on Sunday, when Roger Federer faces Novak Djokovic in a rematch of last year’s men’s final that pits the top two tennis players in the world against each other in a battle for the most prestigious championship in the sport.
In the semifinal, Federer cruised past British star Andy Murray in straight sets, turning in one of the finest matches of his illustrious, 17-year career that has already seen the 33-year-old Swiss tennis legend win seven Wimbledon titles to go with 10 other Grand Slam singles titles and 86 tournament championships overall.
Federer is now in line to set a record with an eighth Wimbledon title. But to do it, he must somehow get past his current nemesis Djokovic, who beat Federer in the 2014 Wimbledon Final and currently holds the world Number One ranking
At age 28, the Serbian will be playing for his third Wimbledon trophy to go with eight other Grand Slam titles.

Last year’s Federer vs. Djokovic Final was an epic, going to the full five sets.
“Novak has been the best player for a few years now,” said Federer after the semifinal on Friday. “He’s made it extremely difficult for guys to win big tournaments. I felt that here last year. I’ve got him a couple times. I know how to beat him, but this is a different occasion. I really hope I can get this one on Sunday.”
In his semifinal, Djokovic defeated the tournament’s Cinderella story, 29-year-old Frenchman Richard Gasquet, in straight sets. But though he won in straight sets, Djokovic had to take time out twice to receive treatment on an aching shoulder.
“It’s nothing that worries me,” Djokovic told the BBC after his victory. “It will be fine for the next match.”
Federer has already made one kind of history simply by qualifying for the Wimbledon Final. With just a month to go before his 34th birthday, Federer will be the oldest man to play for a Wimbledon Championship since then-39-year-old Australian Ken Rosewall played, and was defeated by, American Jimmy Connors in 1974.
