Tennis fans can watch Roger Federer face Novak Djokovic live online as the world’s top two men’s tennis players battle in the U.S. Open Men’s Final — a match that pits not only the two best players in the sport, but the two most evenly matched.
In 41 career meetings, Federer has come out on top 21 times, to 20 for the 28-year-old native of Serbia and Montenegro. The two are also even when they have met in tournament final matches, which has happened four times before Sunday’s U.S. Open Final.
The first time they met in a final was at the U.S. Open, back in 2007, with Federer winning that match. Djokovic then beat Federer twice in the Wimbledon final, including in this year’s tournament. And just three weeks ago, the two squared off in the final of the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati, Ohio, with Federer taking that trophy.

At age 34, the number two world-ranked Federer — widely considered the greatest men’s tennis player of all time — has not reached the U.S. Open Final in his last six tries — after winning the Grand Slam tournament five times.
Top-ranked Djokovic has made the U.S. Open final six times, but amazingly, has won there only once.
In fact, Swiss native Federer, despite winning a record 17 Grand Slam titles, hasn’t taken home a trophy from one of the four major tournaments since he last won Wimbledon in 2012.
Djokovic has won nine Grand Slam tournaments, including the Australian Open and Wimbledon in 2015.
