Swiss Roger Federer, who won 17 Grand Slam titles, entered the finals of Wimbledon for the 10th time after defeating home country favourite Andy Murray of Great Britain in straight sets 7-5, 7-5, 6-4 in the Wimbledon singles semi-final match at the All England club .
Second seed Federer, who has won seven Wimbledon singles titles so far and is looking for the eighth one, will meet defending champion Novak Djokovic . The duo had clashed last year too in a thriller. Djokovic just about managed to clinch a famous win.
Murray could not lay a glove on the Federer serve and the Swiss upped the pressure at crucial stages of each set before wrapping up victory in two hours seven minutes when the British third seed sent a forehand wide.
“It’s been tough. Andy has been playing very well for the season,” Federer said. “I’m unbelievably happy… I played so well on the biggest occasion today and that’s probably why I won it. I’ve been serving very well for the entire tournament. I kept the pressure up, I went for my shots and was able to mix it up the way I usually do it. It all worked out very well,” he added.
